They far exceeded my expectations and even had little stickers to mark each bottle we bought so we knew who's wine belonged to each... More

We had a great time touring wine country, Naramata style, with grape friends wine tours. They took great care of all the details and were very knowledgable with all aspects of the wine industry in the Okanagan area and wines in general. It was a really personalized experience due to the fact that we toured in a nice SUV with... More

What an amazing time we had. There were 7 ladies, and Karen was awesome with us. Right from the booking to the drop off. We laughed so much, drank and bought a bit to much wine. Lunch was on Hillside Winery patio, the sun was shinning, the weather was warm, we couldn't have had a better day. The wineries Karen... More

From the first contact inquiring about possibilities to the tour itself (and even after! - I forgot my jacket in Karen's car and she brought it back to me!), Karen was very helpful. Our group went to Oliver area and I can tell she knew her way around! Some wineries were packed, but thanks to her we were able to... More

My two girlfriends and I recently enjoyed a wine tour to 5 Naramata Bench vineyards during the first week of November 2014. Our hostess/driver Karen is made for this job! She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area and wines and was able to take us to wineries that were closed to the general public. We had the fabulous opportunity... More
