Tour Overview

Bold and powerful the structured red wines of the Okanagan have the strength to measure up to their Merlot dominant right bank cousins. Though the Cab Sauvignon dominant left bank style may not be a star in the Okanagan, the success that Cabernet Franc has, not only makes a stunning wine, it gives the Okanagan a unique angle to create world class reds.

Okanagan Chardonnays stand up next to Napas and bold versions of high acid Rieslings can be compared to that of the Mosel Valley. Lastly ruby red, light bodied Okanagan Pinot Noir, though not as structured as their Burgundian ancestors, the Okanagan Pinot noir is in a league of its own and should not be underrated. The diamond in the rough is the sparkling wine, that when made in traditional methods, rivals that of Champagne (also sharing our latitude), and we think dollar for dollar are the best Canadian wine buys.

Your four vineyard tour will showcase the best of the Okanagan. Let us know what your persuasion is and we will be sure to tailor a tour to match.
