Fort Berens Estate Winery is located in Lillooet, along the Gold Rush Trail in British Columbia's newest and most exciting emerging wine region. Lillooet's first winery was forged on the road less traveled. It is a culmination of the dreams, vision, and pioneering spirit of the team. Today, with 38 acres of vineyard and a cabinet filled with regional, national, and international wine awards, Fort Berens is showing the world that this is a discovery for the new millennium. At this breathtaking location, we passionately handcraft award-winning wines that reflect our unique Lillooet terroir.

Handcrafted from our finest 100% estate grown Merlot grapes from our Dry Creek Vineyard. This Merlot Reserve is a blend of only 10 barrels of Merlot, with each barrel made by different coopers and different toasting levels to give a unique complexity of flavours. The wine was then aged in French oak barrels for 15 months. This medium-full bodied wine with ripe tannins can be enjoyed now or it can be cellared until 2025.

Bright and lively with notes of tropical fruit, and hints of lychee, muscat, and rose petals, this Riesling is beautifully balanced and features flavours of green apples, pears, and lemon zest. The versatile and slightly off-dry wine is great to enjoy on its own, and it pairs with almost any dish.
