Noted for very fertile soils, the Fraser Valley is the largest agricultural region in British Columbia, Canada’s westernmost province. Just east of Vancouver, the DVA has a longer growing season than the richly productive Okanagan Valley, although it is cooler. Given these generally promising conditions, it is curious that the area presently hosts so few grape wineries (along with several fruit wineries), with barely 20 hectares under vine. Perhaps the high fertility of the Fraser Valley doesn't offer the "stress levels" commonly associated with premium winegrowing. Still, the Fraser Valley does have certain microclimates suitable to varieties like Bacchus, Madeleine Sylvaner, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Fraser Valley is home to the province’s most southerly winery, Domaine de Chaberton.
