We stopped here on a recent ride along the Pemberton/Duffy Lake road. (which is fantastic by the way). The new tasting room was open and welcoming. The vineyards are an oasis of green in a dry and hot climate. We were both impressed with the Riesling and Pinot Gris as well as their other offerings. Stefan was charming as our... More

Passing through Lillooet last week for camping and remembered our friends had told us we must check out this winery as their wines were excellent. We discovered their new tasting room and what a fabulous surprise! Their wines are award wining and absolutely deserving ... Especially enjoyed their new release Merlot, The White Gold and Riesling !!, the next Burrowing... More

We were passing through Lillooet and remembered how well friends of ours had spoken of this place, so decided to stop in. We were a week too early for the opening of their new facility, but it's really the wine and the service that matter, and we have no complaints about those! We've been to lots of wineries in California,... More

Unfortunately, our visit was marred by the undergoing construction of their new winery. It should be good when it's finished.

Thanks for visiting our tasting room. Indeed, we are very busy with the construction of a brand new tasting room to serve our guest better. We anticipate that the new tasting room will be open early July. We hope you will stop in soon afterwards to enjoy our new tasting room room. More

Visiting Fort Berens estate winery is a must if you are in Lillooet and you enjoy wine tasting. I believe the place is owned by a Dutch couple, and their wines have already won a number of awards despite the few years the winery has been in operation. My hat’s off to them. They took their chances by starting the... More

Enjoyable visit, friendly and knowledgeable staff, great location. For a new winery they have won many awards. The product speaks for itself. Really enjoyed the 23 Camels wine.

Not the greatest winery in the world, but an admirable effort. Attention has been paid to a local identity. Definitely worth a visit, be fair with criticism.

I live in the same valley as this young new baby vinyard. I have watched this vinyard grow from an unused hay feild to a beautiful lush vinyard and am amazed and so pleased with the dedication and attention to detail that these owners show. It is the first time I have been able to actually watch the entire process... More
