Great experience!

I've always been a big fan of the wines, but the new facility is fabulous and the new Restaurant is so great, we went back twice in four days!

My husband and I were the first to arrive for lunch at the Ponderosa Kitchen today. We are locals and very anxious to experience the introduction of food at Fort Berens. We were not disappointed. We began with the meat and cheese plate that came with fresh bread, and a variety of meets and cheeses. Not large portion, but great... More

Stopped by during a weekend road trip to the BC interior. Had previously ordered a case of their Governor General award winning 2012 Reisling so it was a must do stop. The new tasting room (opened in May 2014) is bright, modern, well organized room with a fantastic view of the local mountains. The tastings are accompanied with expert descriptions.... More

It's nice to see a business opening in Lillooet rather than closing! The winery is relatively new but they already have award winning wines. We bought their late harvest Riesling and a Cabernet Franc. A recommended stop.

This is a fabulous little winery that specialises in reds. It has some lovely drops, especially the merlot and the Heritage (a Bordeaux blend) and the Cab Franc has also won awards. In fact all their wines are worth a taste as you never know what will take your fancy. The location is beautiful, with plenty of outdoor seating for... More

I spotted this winery on a trip through the area a few years ago and even then thought the wine was worth purchasing and keeping for awhile. I am pleased to say, my instincts were spot on. My son and daughter inlaw gave me a case for my birthday and we enjoyed every mouthful. I now purchase some of the... More

Had another great visit at Fort Berens winery over the holidays. We were happy that Georgia was there for our tasting, she really knows her wine and is always a pleasure to chat with! We will be back on our next visit to Lillooet for sure. Beautiful new tasting room as well!!

The new winery is very modern. Completely new building with production set apart with viewing in the tasting room. There are a couple of decent wines which are very different from the run of the mill Okanagan wines. Let's face it, wine tasting is very subjective and will have a difference that only individuals will detect. All of their wines... More

Who would have thought to find such a good winery right tucked away in Lilloet ? After a wonderful drive down the lake Duffy road we arrived in Lilloet which looks like something out of a fifties western. The winery there was well worth the visit. And the wine is excellent.

It has been years since we have been to Lillooet and were surprised to find an outstanding winery operating in the town.
