Fort Berens Winery- Lillooet

Feeling intrepid I picked up a bottle of the Fort Berens Riesling the other day-you may have heard of this new winery located in distant Lillooet.

Not expecting much I was happily surprised at how much character the wine showed and how well the terroir-a strange one to all of us-suited the Riesling.

If you're up for something a tad different for one of your picnics this year this wine is it (and the brassy gold colour appeals as well).

      i've never tried their product, but Texas Creek Ranch is also on the Lillooet winery bandwagon - interesting. Certainly is beautiful countryside up there. and nice to have a change from the OK Valley hype
