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

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

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
