Feeling like traveling to Europe in a second might be unrealistic, but luckily, I was able to have a similar experience at this cute winery in BC, without the plane ticket.

Country Vines Winery in Richmond, BC made me feel like I had been transported to the French countryside with its beautiful surroundings. It’s only about a 30-minute drive from Vancouver, making it the ideal weekend activity.

Also, their wine was amazing.

The little winery is actually located on an actual farm called Richmond Country Farms and it was the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine.

There was such stunning greenery that surrounded the entire seating area and every inch of it had the most country vibes.

My table had a super cozy fireplace that was able to keep me warm the entire time because the day I visited it was actually a bit chilly.

I ordered the mixed wine flight where I was able to sample some of their featured white wines, red wine, and a rose. Wine flights are always my go to because this way, I only get to try a little bit of everything.

Although, if you only like a specific type of wine, they also have options to order just one glass.

Plus, the winery is dog friendly, so I was even able to bring my pup, Hercules, with me.

If you want to bring your dog too, just make sure to keep him on a leash because there are chickens wandering around the cellar, and Hercules was very intrigued, to say the least.

Needless to say, I think my dog ​​enjoyed the winery as much as I did, and even got to see some goats.

The bodega doesn’t actually sell food, but you can bring your own snacks.

They even have a picnic area that would be the best place to enjoy a homemade charcuterie board with some wine.
