Attended Lillooet's second annual Beer & Wine Harvest Festival today — it was great!
Hosted by Fort Berens Estate Winery, Texas Creek Ranch and the Bitterbine Hop Company it was great family fun. A straw bale castle, traditional playground set, and acres to to run around on, were highlights for the kids.
We elder folk enjoyed a variety of home grown musical entertainment, local crafts, produce, honey, hops and much more. Tours of the hop farm, the vineyard — by horse drawn wagon — and a very informative wine tasting!
Plenty of great artisan foods to delight your tastebuds - highlights included BBQ venison, chicken with veggies kebobs, and an awesome array of seasoned soft goat cheeses.
The day was complete with the typical blue skies and warm sunny weather for which Lillooet is celebrated. Treat yourself well — mark this on your calendar and plan to be here next year, for the 3rd annual festival. You’ll be glad you did.
