3033 232nd Street
Formerly known as Glenugie Winery, this Langley property relaunched in 2009 as Neck Of The Woods Winery after the owner ditched Real Estate Winery, the name originally chosen. The new owner, Ewen Stewart, who bought the winery in 2007 from the estate of founder Gary Tayler, has had a long and successful career in the real estate business (hence his first name choice). A turnaround specialist, Stewart has been reviving the formerly struggling Pepin Brook residential subdivision near Abbotsford. That includes a vineyard on which he is developing Backyard Vineyards winery (because the winery is in the backyards of the housing). This winery may not be open until 2011, but several of the wines already are available in the Neck of the Woods wineshop.
Owner/Operator: Ewen Stewart
