Our vineyards are planted on a sagebrush-covered bench, at the foot of the mountains in the Fraser Canyon and deep in what was the heart of gold mining country. Alpine breezes bring a cool end to hot summer days, and the afternoon sun lingerers over acres of vines. Sandy soil, arid summers, and moderate winters provide a unique terroir – ideal for growing premium grapes. Lillooet is British Columbia’s newest wine region with 150 years of pioneering spirit.

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.
