Blossom Winery

16880 Westminster Hwy.
Richmond, V6V 1A8, BC

After eight years in a Richmond strip mall, Blossom Winery moved in 2009 to share quarters with a sister winery, Lulu Island Winery. Proprietors John Chang and Allison Lu came to Canada in 1999 from Taiwan. He was an electrical equipment dealer there but, inspired by the memory of his grandmother’s fruit wines, began making raspberry and blueberry wines from berries grown on Richmond’s many farms.

Subsequently, Blossom branched into both grape wines and icewines.

Blossom makes about 30,000 litres a year and contracts grapes at five Okanagan and Similkameen vineyards. Much of the wine is exported to China and Taiwan. In 2006, the winery was recognized as one of the 24 fastest-growing exporters in the province. With the 22,000-square-foot Lulu Island winery looking after consumer sales in the domestic market, Blossom has now become an export label.

  1. Dear BC Winery,

    We are Master Sommelier, Jen Huether and Vegan Food Consultant, Priya Rao and we launched The Social Herbivore in fall of 2019 to create elevated pairings for vegan wine and plant-based food.

    As you’ve no doubt experienced, demand for earth-friendly wines has been growing steadily over the past few years yet it’s a challenge for consumers to find these wines easily. To make it easier for wine lovers The Social Herbivore has created a directory of vegan-friendly and vegan-certified wineries in Canada. You can peruse their Ontario list at: https://www.thesocialherbivore.co/ontario-vegan-wineries

    We are now launching a similar directory for BC wines. Please let us know who we should reach out to on your team about this initiative.

    Cheers,

    The Social Herbivore Team
