We had a great day tasting wines in Naramata with Luke from Grape Escapes. The group consisted of 5 couples and one group of three, to make 13 in total. This was larger than I was expecting, however, it was a busy long weekend in the Okanagan. We visited 5 wineries that were fantastic. My favourites were Tightrope and Hillside. The day seemed a little long, with LOTS of time at each winery to take pictures and enjoy the views. We didn't get back to our hotel until close to 6.

My husband, sister in law and I took a trip to Penticton last weekend. We wanted to go wine tasting, so we called a few winery tour companies and Grape Escapes was the one we decided to go with.We're so glad we did! What a wonderful experience on a beautiful sunny day in the Okanagan. Our tour guide Dino was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about wines, and took us to five wineries, taking the time to explain a little about the history of the wineries on the way, which was very interesting. As well as tasting the wines we also got the opportunity to see the vines and Dino explained extensively the way the grapes are grown and harvested. He was able to answer any questions we had about the different wines we were tasting and we learned so much that drinking a glass of wine will never be the same again, in a good way! He even managed to turn my beer loving husband into a wine enthusiast!

Dino even brought a basket along with a selection of cheeses, crackers, fruit and chocolate (tasting all those wines is hungry work!) and bottles of water to keep hydrated.

All three of us would highly recommend booking with Grape Escapes if you are planning a trip to the Okanagan. You definitely won't be disappointed! We will be returning later in the year for the beer tour that Grape escapes also offer. Fantastic, 10/10!

Just back from a brilliant afternoon with Dino & Grape Escapes. It was informative, interesting, great fun, great value - we weren't rushed in anyway. Most welcome at all the vineyards with plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Lovely picnic basket as part of the price - a very memorable tour!
