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.

This winery is a little gem with amazing wine and great staff! We have been going to the Lillooet area for the last 25 years, as we have a cabin up that way. We stopped at this winery last weekend, and we're so happy that we did. All of their wines were great and their staff were very knowledgeable and... More

We drove approx 5 hours to this winery and it was worth it. Stefan (I think that is his name) was a joy. He had 5 couples at the wine tasting bar and managed to entertain them all exceptionally well. Excellent knowledge of the wines also on tap. Well done! And thanks for an enjoyable afternoon. We also got to... More

We visited here in August and were most impressed with the enthusiastic staff and very good wines. We were suitably impressed by the quality of the tasting and the expertise of the South African winemaker. There was no talk of charging us for tasting unless we bought etc(although we were with a group) The surrounding fields and towering mountains are... More

If it's on your way definitely stop there. While we were there folks walked in just to buy wine. They new the product and loved it. Also... More

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
