Fort Berens Estate Winery

Featured Product

A slightly off-dry Riesling with lively aromas of apple, lychee, and honey with flavours of zesty lime, grapefruit, and caramelized apples. It is perfectly balanced and would pair well with nearly anything delicious, especially spicy Thai and Mexican dishes.

Lillooet's first winery

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. During the summer the tasting room is open daily from 10am till 6pm. From November 1st until May 1st, the tasting room will be open from 10am till 4pm. 

 

Join the Discovery Club

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.

Screwcap trials: Chardonnay & Riesling tasting

Fort Berens Estate Winery

5pm - 6:30pm

Screwcaps may all look the same, but under the cap is where the magic occurs. The liner of the cap allows a little bit of oxygen through that will impact the way a wine ages. In 2012 and 2013, we experimented with different liners of screwcaps. Some allow lots of oxygen through, some very little. In this tasting session, you will have an opportunity to taste 6 variations of 2012 Chardonnay and 2013 Riesling. Same wine, different screwcap.
