Fort Berens Estate Winery is a culmination of the dreams, vision and pioneering spirit of several entrepreneurs. It was founded with a pioneering spirit and forged on the road less traveled. The winery is owned by a team of eight individuals who share a common belief in the incredible winemaking potential of British Columbia’s Fraser Canyon and a shared vision to make Fort Berens into one of Canada’s leading producers of fine wine.

We stopped here on our way home for a tasting, it was a beautiful hot sunny day. Our first tasting was the Pinot Gris, a perfect refreshing choice for the hot weather. We purchased a few bottles for some summer sipping and look forward to drinking them soon.

Second visit, during off season but I very much look forward to visiting in summer to enjoy the patio. Staff was enthusiastic about the product and being a part of the team. Highly recommend stopping in for a tasting!

Quite a nice little place to relax. They know their wine and have the best little eatery in the valley.

Fantastic wines and wonderful scenery makes this visit a must when in Lillooet, don't miss it! The wine tasting is a pleasant trip around the tastes of the wines produced in the region, certainly a good trip.

Had a lovely lunch here on the patio. They have blankets for the outdoor diners if required, so even though it was a chilly day I laid a blanket over my lap and was comfortable. There are only a few tables inside but quite a large outdoor dining deck with a nice view over the vineyard and the mountains. Initially... More

We stumbled across this place on our travels - just passing through this small town and well worth the stop. Complementary wine tasting provided by friendly, knowledgeable staff. A picturesque setting - only wish we had longer to stay and enjoy. They have a cafe/restaurant with outdoor seating. We brought a bottle of wine and regretted not buying more. Very... More

Stopped for lunch on the patio in the autumn sunshine. Afterwards we tasted a few extra wines and purchased several bottles, some of which were consumed before we left BC! Just in case they don't travel well. Its a must go destination and try and time it to coincide with lunchtime.

Thankfully, the wine and food served by Fort Behrens does not live up to Lillooet's motto: Guaranteed Rugged. We had a meal for four served outside under an open-sided canopy with lovely views of the surrounding mountains and Fort Behrens vineyards. It is a must-do. Chef Dylan is a craftsman and the local merlot a real treat from such young... More
