I have taken a couple wine tours in my day and after taking Matt and Shannon's tour I can't recall any of them...! But seriously, this was such an amazing way to see the fruits that the Okanagan Valley has to offer. We were fortunate enough to have a private tour and every single person was blown away by the subtle yet thoughtful touches that really made a world of difference in the end. From the local cured meats and charcuterie, to the extensive (and we're talking extensive) wine knowledge that Matt has accrued, to the freedom to choose which of the 100+(estimate) wineries we wanted to see, it delivered a sensory experience that was unpretentious and complete. A job well done on all fronts and we will definitely be back to enjoy the experience again!

We enjoyed a wonderful tour of the Naramata Bench wineries out of Penticton with Experience Wine tours. Shannon was prompt and friendly in her emails as we set up the date and pick up times for the tour. Matt is very knowledgeable about the area and the wines grown on the bench. The lunch was wonderful! Couldn't ask for anything better in variety or freshness of the food. We came home with great memories and lots of wine! We will definitely book again with them when we come back to sample other vineyards. Thanks Matt and Shannon!

When searching for wine tours in kelowna, we chanced upon this little jem. The picnic lunch, goat cheese farm visit, and good reviews especially caught our attention and we booked it. From the very start we got great service and friendly emails enquiring about what we liked and so they could cater the tour to our liking. And the tour exceeded our expectations. Matt is a great guide; friendly and comfortable to be with. We got a great tour of different spots in the city when driving around, not the mention the wineries he chose were fantastic!! As previous reviews have mentioned, the picnic lunch was definitely a highlight, and so was the honey farm visit. Felt very well taken care of, and we really liked the small business feel that Matt and Shannon have created with this tour. Felt like just a great day enjoying good food and wine with friends!

I had the best time with Matt and Experience Wine Tours.
Everything was absolutely perfect! Matt is an excellent tour guide - knowledgeble, experienced, friendly - just overall a pleasure to be around.
The wineries of course were great, but by far the best part of the tour was the gourmet picnic lunch. Matt went and bought local cheeses, meats, breads, fruit, veggies for us and we sat and had a private lunch.
Thank you so much - and for putting up with 10 girls!
We will be back next year!

I recently had the opportunity to attend a wine tour with Experience Wine Tours in Kelowna for a stagette. Matt was the perfect host for our group!! He is fun, energetic, and very knowledgeable and passionate about wine. Matt took the time to educate us on the wineries we toured and to answer every question we had about wine and wineries in the Okanagan. He also took us to a local organic honey farm, where we were able to try and purchase different types of honey.

The picnic lunch provided was delicious, and a great addition to the tour!! All of the food can be found at local stores, restaurants and the farmers market. As I have an allergy to wheat, Matt made sure to include Gluten Free foods that I was able to enjoy.

I have and would continue to recommend Experience Wine Tours to all my family and friends!! A bunch of us are already planning another tour for next year, and look forward to another great day of wine tasting!!
