Lillooet’s First Winery
Fort Berens Estate Winery is a culmination of the dreams, vision and pioneering spirit of a group of passionate owners. They 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.
With its vineyards on sagebrush covered bench land along the Fraser River at the base of towering mountains, Fort Berens embraces the spirit of Lillooet. Alpine breezes, lingering summer sunlight and moderate winters provide a unique terroir ideal for growing premium grapes. We are committed to handcrafting award-winning wines that reflect our local terroir.
Take a drive and explore Lillooet’s First Winery, sample their latest vintages in the tasting room, and soak up the breathtaking vistas from their patio kitchen while enjoying a farm fresh wine-paired lunch.
