Fort Berens Estate Winery



In Lillooet, Fort Berens Estate Winery sits at the heart of BC’s newest wine region, where summers are long, hot, and dry—the perfect trifecta for growing grapes. 

Here, the winery’s 38 acres of vineyards along the famed Gold Rush Trail produce consistent, quality wines that reflect the unique terroir of the area (Fort Berens focuses on producing single varietals from single vineyards with minimal intervention). White wines are fresh while reflecting the good acidity that is retained through the relatively cool nights of the region, while red wine varietals are cellared for one year in French and American oak barrels, then aged another year in bottle prior to release. 

The result? Regional, national, and international award-winning pours best paired with Chef David Schuk’s locally sourced menus at The Kitchen at Fort Berens. 

Visit the Fort Berens Estate tasting room, open daily, to take a 45-minute guided wine-tasting tour. Or, if you’d like to dine, plan your visit for May or later, and book at the winery’s restaurant.

About British Columbia

In Canada’s westernmost province, fresh local bounty, talented chefs, and a melting pot of cultures combine to make British Columbia a top culinary destination. It’s a rich tapestry supported by farmers, growers, and producers whose ingredients shape menus in communities along the Pacific Ocean, in the Rocky Mountains, and everywhere in between.

Here, Indigenous cultures who have been nurturing the land for millennia showcase traditional offerings with a modern twist. Other multicultural influences inspire chefs and artisan food producers to blend local ingredients with global flavours. Dishes also vary widely, depending on place, creating distinctive regional dining scenes—from wild salmon sushi in Tofino to down-home guest ranch cooking in the Cariboo to delicate dim sum in Richmond. 

Victoria, the province’s capital, boasts more restaurants per capita than almost anywhere else in Canada, while Vancouver, BC’s most populous city, was recently recognized with several MICHELIN Stars, further elevating the city’s reputation as an international dining destination. Wine touring, spirits, and local beer are hugely popular here, too, in the Fraser Valley near Vancouver, on Vancouver Island, and especially along the Okanagan Valley lakeside, where seasonal pours provide the perfect finish to a day of hiking, biking, and swimming.
