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.
Our tasting room is open year-round. For the winer, the winery is open from 10:00am-4:00pm Thursday through Monday from November until April.
Explore the land. Experience the thrill of Discovery. Our wine club program offers you the chance to be a pioneer: to be the first to see, taste, and uncover the terroir of our region. With its snow-capped mountains and unique arid climate, Lillooet might be one of the last uncharted wine regions in the province. From the first taste of a new vintage to walking the vineyard with the winemaker, you can be part of the Discovery. In every journey there are many explorations, but only one first step.
We strive to craft a portfolio of balanced and distinctive wines, honest and pure, that reflects the unique terroir of this new region and the spirit of the winemaker. Offered at a fair price, our wines are accessible for a broad audience and allow for outstanding food paring.
