Dining at Northern Lights Estate Winery, Prince George BC

Northern Lights Estate Winery



Set on the Nechako River in Prince George, Northern Lights Estate Winery is the largest fruit winery in Canada and the most northernly winery in the province. Their onsite Bistro also shines as the only riverfront restaurant in city. 

Here, award-winning, vegan-friendly wines are crafted from BC-grown fruits, including gooseberries, raspberries, apples, rhubarb, black currants, cherries, and blueberries. A carbon-neutral winery, Northern Lights focuses on sustainability and environmental practices, including soil regeneration, biodiversity, and water conservation. 

Try the Heritage Haskap, a bold, big-bodied red. A hardy producer of the North, the Haskap berry thrives in cold climates, offering a burst of dark red fruits and oak on the nose, notes of bright blueberry, and a hint of vanilla on the finish. For a different flavour, the Nechako Crush, made from the often-overlooked rhubarb plant, offers a balanced sweetness with a tart finish, thanks to hints of cranberry and citrus, accentuated by spring flowers. If you're eager to try more, book a private tasting, pair your pours with menus from the Bistro, and enjoy the riverside views.

About British Columbia

In Canada’s westernmost province, fresh local bounty, talented chefs, and a melting pot of cultures combine to make British Columbia a top culinary destination. It’s a rich tapestry supported by farmers, growers, and producers whose ingredients shape menus in communities along the Pacific Ocean, in the Rocky Mountains, and everywhere in between.

Here, Indigenous cultures who have been nurturing the land for millennia showcase traditional offerings with a modern twist. Other multicultural influences inspire chefs and artisan food producers to blend local ingredients with global flavours. Dishes also vary widely, depending on place, creating distinctive regional dining scenes—from wild salmon sushi in Tofino to down-home guest ranch cooking in the Cariboo to delicate dim sum in Richmond. 

Victoria, the province’s capital, boasts more restaurants per capita than almost anywhere else in Canada, while Vancouver, BC’s most populous city, was recently recognized with several MICHELIN Stars, further elevating the city’s reputation as an international dining destination. Wine touring, spirits, and local beer are hugely popular here, too, in the Fraser Valley near Vancouver, on Vancouver Island, and especially along the Okanagan Valley lakeside, where seasonal pours provide the perfect finish to a day of hiking, biking, and swimming.
