We had an amazing tour with Dino, who provided an extra level of enjoyment with his great personality. We visited the most interesting themed wineries and met a lot of great people while sampling and buying some amazing wines. Probably one of the best highlights of our whole trip to Penticton. 10/10
We will be back Dino!

Thank Eyobe1

First time on a wine tour and can only say that it was a great day. I would not want to do a tour on my own because you miss out on the fun of the group. We were picked up at our Hotel at 10:30 in the morning in a very clean air conditioned bus. We were greeted by Driver/Owner Dino who proceeded to entertain, guide and instruct us on a marvelous day out in wine country. You could tell he loves his job and people. We went to wine tasting 101 and then onto 5 wineries where we saw,sniffed, swirled,sipped and savored to our hearts content, sorry no spitting for this girl. Before our last stop we enjoyed a lovely lunch overlooking the lake at the Lake Breeze Winery.

We were deposited back at our hotel at 4, it was a lovely day and the time breezed by. Well worth the cost would do it again in a heart beat. Thanks Dino, I will see you next year for sure.

What a great day spent with Dino on the naramata wine tour. It was my first wine tour but won't be my last. I can't wait to come back and do another tour. The scenery is amazing. Beautiful wineries in the perfect location. Thanks again!!

Highly recommend this tour if you are in the area. Excellent tour guide, knowledgable about local geography and of the wine producers and all that's associated with production. Tour included a lunch break in a wonderful setting over looking the lake. Great food and just the right amount of time to enjoy. In all was a wonderful day.
