I was not expecting much for taste but was interested in the whole mead thing. I was pleasantly surprised that the wines were delicious. I am a dry wine drinker and these were perfectly drinkable. I brought home a few bottles. The staff are very knowledgeable and have some good stories about the whole process of mead. I will definitely be going back.

This is a good winery in Langley that also does some honey wines/mead. Tasting is waved if you buy a bottle and they have lots to choose from. There are spots to sit outside and also a pizza food stand on site. Worth a stop!!!

Great introduction to the history and making of Mead! Teresa and wine maker Bill were so knowledgeable sharing an abundance of information and pointers in the process of mead making for the novice home brewer. The suggested pairing of the various meads we tried with meals was great. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Will definitely be back there again.

I never thought in a million years I’d like mead. I was fortunate enough to attend a pride event at Festina Lente and was not disappointed. There’re were 8 groups of 6 of us they accommodated us all the while ensuring safe social distancing practices. The owners, Theresa and Bill, and the staff were friendly and warm, the grounds were gorgeous and the wine...oh my god...I’m a beer girl but I bought 3 bottles (the ginger mead is a must)! Thank you Theresa, Bill and gang. It was a fabulous day!

We had a fantastic experience at the winery for Pride 2020. The owners Bill and Theresa have a very unique experience for wine lovers that is not to be missed and they are just genuinely nice people. They closed the winery for us for a few hours to do our own version of gay pride with social distancing in place that weekend that was just an overall success and we all had a blast! Can't wait for next year's event!!!

If you have never tasted “honey wine” or mead before this is place to go. Friendly informative staff in a family environment. Let your kids feed the chickens while you sample some of the most flavorful mead wines you have ever tried. A must stop on your Langley wine tour map!

My husband is a self-professed wine snob, yet after a tasting here he may just be a convert. The owner, Bill, was an excellent guide. Friendly and knowledgeable.
Surprising to learn different aspects. Each mead we tasted was markedly different than the last. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Highly recommended!

One of a kind winery to make it an interesting stop to learn about all kinds of “honey wine”.

Teresa aka the queen bee, doing the tasting with us was friendly and knowledgeable.

Worth the stop if you have time.

We visible irritated Teresa immediately. 11 People cannot stand at their Bar and do a group Wine tasting without a little bit of noise! Then a personality conflict between one of our group and her resulted in her resulted in us leaving. Her joke of the wine being made of "Cow Dung" and her demeanor towards us did not leave a sweet taste in my mouth! I see they have removed our comments off of FB, but I felt I needed to warn others that this owner is a bit of a snob.

Your comments have not been removed from any platform as business owners are unable to moderate their reviews. You were, however, part of a group that was refused service in our tasting room. It is our privilledge to have great customers and should we have to make decisions that protect the experience of all our customers, we make the difficult decision to do so. We happily accommodate groups of all sizes and have had no problems doing so previously. We are however under no obligation to serve alcohol to people who are belligerent, disruptive or appear intoxicated. We have reviewed the video of the incident and have determined that our staff acted appropriately in refusing service according to our responsibility under Provincial liquor codes. We do however regret that, due to your abrupt departure, other members of your group who were truly interested in the tasting experience were denied the opportunity to enjoy their time at our winery. Your continued harassment of our business will not change our response.
