We had an amazing time touring the Naramata Bench with Karen. She was so fun and outgoing! She made each of us our own little name tags and provided us with pens and note pads so we could keep track of the wines we loved at each winery. Karen made sure we got to all the wineries we really wanted... More

As a wine novice interested in learning more about Okanagan wineries, I couldn't have asked for a better guide than Grape Friends' Karen Donison. Our 5-hour tour took our party of six to six wineries on the Naramata Bench. Karen helped us choose the wineries, introduced us to the owners, provided gentle instructions on wine tasting basics (to those of... More

We went on a three hour tour to Naramata Bench with Karen. We found her to be so much fun, knowledgable and passionate about the local wineries. She took us to four wineries that we enjoyed discovering. The highlight for Sean was the fact that Karen knew so much about the different wines and that she took us to the... More

We had a lovely two days spent with Karen who was both fun and knowledgeable about the wines. We had a lovely lunch on both days. A great introduction to the wines of BC.

Karen is lovely! We went on a 3-hour tour with her, and she really knows her stuff. She customized our tour based on our tastes. It was great to go wine tasting without one of us having to drive! You can tell Karen really enjoys her job and that her #1 priority was us having an enjoyable experience. She tends... More

We called Karen on the day we wanted to go and she set us up on a tour with two other couples. Ron came to pick us up and took us to 7 or 8 wineries. He was knowledgeable and super friendly. It was such a great experience!

This was my first time actually having a winery tour and not doing self-guided. It was so awesome! Karen was full of energy which helped keep the momentum up for the full 4 hour tour. We got to go to some great wineries who all treated us wonderfully which appeared to be due to Karen's connections. She was super flexible... More
