Embark on a guided tour and a taste of the land of gold fever with a trail that gold hunters travelled in yesteryear since the late 1850s. In modern times, the only “easy gold” on this trip is the smooth and seductive White Gold wine and a full complement of award winning wines at Fort Berens in Lillooet along with colourful stories about 23 Camels who were area residents in years past.
Full tour of the vineyard and fabulous facility plus lunch in the winery restaurant (seasonal option). Winter tours will stop for lunch at a restaurant on route.
|FORT BERENS| Fort Berens Estate Winery 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 one of British Columbia’s emerging wine regions with 150 years of pioneering spirit.
