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. Cab Sauvignon dominants the left bank while Cabernet Franc makes a stunning wine and gives the Okanagan a unique opportunity to create world class reds.

Okanagan Chardonnays stand up to Napa’s; bold versions of high acid Rieslings are comparable to those of the Mosel Valley. Last, but by no means least, the ruby red, light bodied Pinot Noirs, are in a league of their 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 dollar for dollar are the best Canadian wine buys.

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