Last Labour Day long week-end my partner and I were looking for a wineries tour in the Ok Falls and Oliver area; we've opted for Okanagan Wine Country Tours...mainly because it seemed to be on a smaller group scale an therefore more personable and intimate. Well, did we ever hit it right!!!....First of all Patti was very pleasant and helpful on the phone when it was time to book it prior to our leaving Vancouver. She was very prompt at calling me back after I had left a message. She asked me what we were looking for in a wine tour and if there are any particular wineries we would like to visit and so on....right away she made it sound attractive and personable!
She picked us up at the door of our B&B in Penticton (and there were only 4 of us on that tour...what a treat!) and she was able to ensure that everyone of us did see the wineries we were interested in, and I could tell immediately that she was a well known and respected figure in the wine scene of the Okanagan....everywhere we went she knew the actual wine makers and their employees, which made us all feel the more welcome! Her sheer knowledge of winemaking and friendly personality made our day so pleasant and memorable. She made sure we were comfortable at all times. For example, as we were wrapping up our wine tastings and purchases in the wine rooms, she made a point to go back to our vehicle to get it air conditioned and comfortable so the scorching heat would not damage our wines and we would seat comfortably right away....it is details like these that makes Patti's wine touring the greatest and well worth paying the extra bucks....you get a five diamonds treatment....led by a five diamonds wine tour guide!!!....thank you Patti for a great day wine touring....we would never hesitate to book you again or to recommend it to our wine loving friends.....two thumbs up!!!
