A friend and I visited Penticton during the May long weekend and we decided to do a girls day wine tour while the boys had their soccer tournament. A huge thanks to our guide Mark for the warmest hospitality. He is very knowledgeable in wine, and also gave us some information about the area. He provided us with abundance amounts of snacks including dark chocolate, strawberries, and cheese. We also never had to carry our boxes of wine (we ended up with 3 cases) during the tour. We had a small dog with us, and Dino was so kind to make arrangements for the little pup so we can enjoy our tour worry-free. We chose the South Okanagan tour as we both have always wanted to visit Hester Creek and Burrowing Owl. We trusted Dino to choose the rest of the wineries and so glad that we did! Beside the two wineries, we went to Rustico. As soon as we walked in, Bruce welcomed us with his friendly smile (they have one of the best zin I've ever tasted). Another memorable experience was Silver Sage winery. They have some interesting wines such as "The Flame" which is a spicy dessert wine, and they also have some great reds such as "The Passion" Pinot Noir. Overall, this was a great experience and more than I expected. I highly recommend Grape Escapes, and can't wait until the next tour! Thank you Mark & Dino!
