Sun and Soil Concert Series
On July 8th the Sun and Soil Concert Series, held at Fraser Valley Cider Company promises to be a dreamy, immersive summer evening sure to tickle the senses with food, drink, and music. Tickets are sold in advance, and the experience includes a 90-minute set from local musician Antonio Larosa, a shareable Tiffin Tin for Two, local bevvies, and all aimed at a 19+ crowd.
The Fraser Valley, so rich with farm fresh produce, local food growers and producers, means the tiffin tin will feature local meats and cheeses, or vegan options. Cider crafted onsite right at Fraser Valley Cider Company is the perfect pairing. If cider is not your thing, not to fret, local Langley wines and beer will be on offer as well.
Fraser Valley Cider Company, based in Langley, first opened their doors in 2016, and has grown to include twenty-five types of cider in their line-up. Brand new and exciting is the Blueberry Limoncello, light, fruity and with a citrus zip. Also fun? The Closed on Tuesday cider, which was crafted by the all- female cider production team to celebrate International Women’s Day this past spring and includes pomegranate, blueberry, lemon, and a hint of pink peppercorn. Roosters Revenge is new as well, an estate cider made entirely from apples grown at the cidery. Bottle conditioned for a champagne style carbonation this cider is rich in tannins, body and oakiness.
Wine & Tapas at Saba Café
How about a little Italian style aperitivo hour? Saba Café in Langley has a brand-new weekly wine and tapas menu just for summertime, served Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 3:30 – 8:00 pm. Sip an Aperol spritz, nibble a little, and you’re transported to the piazza.
Valley Commons Long Table Dinner
