We had a group of 8 (including a 1yr old) and this was our first experience with a wine tour. Dino was an excellent guide and very accommodating! He told stories at each vineyard which kept us entertained the whole trip, and lunch was amazing as well!! We would definitely tour with Dino again to see more of the Naramata... More

We took a half day tour with lunch with Dino. It was our first wine tasting tour and our first trip to Penticton, and was the perfect introduction to the area and the vineyard culture. Each stop had an interesting story behind the owners and vineyards that we wouldn't have known if we had visited on our own. Dino was... More

My husband and I, along with another couple, did an all day wine tour from Penticton to Oliver, including lunch. The choices of wineries were fabulous, giving a good mix of old and new, big and small. Dino was our guide. He was wonderful. Taught us all about wine tasting, the area, the people, the vineyards. He had interesting stories... More

My wife and I did a half-day tour of the Naramata Bench with Dino in early June. Dino was an exceptional host and guide and very informative. He really goes out of his way to meet the needs of his guests and is very helpful if you are new to wine tasting. The great part of taking a tour with... More

I was disappointed when I went to book a tour that there was no one to take my call. And even more so when they didn't take the time to return my call after leaving a message. Went with a different company which I was more than happy with and would use again.

My sister and I took a half day wine tour to the Naramata Bench wine area with The Grape Escape in May. Neil was our driver & guide for the afternoon. Another lovely couple from Ottowa was also on the tour. We had a great afternoon sampling some of the local wines. Neil was very knowledgable about the wineries &... More

I have never been a wine drinker, let alone go on a wine tour. My group of friends visited Summerland and booked a wine tour for 9 girls for a Bachelorette. We all had a blast! Neil picked us up in the van and was so nice and informative about everything. We will definitely come back for another trip in... More

My partner and I went on a wine tour of the Naramata Bench this May, and it was the highlight of our trip. My partner isn't even a wine drinker and he can't wait to go back on another tour. Our tour guide, Neil, was amazing. He accommodated everyone's experience levels so we didn't feel like total newbies :). We... More
