Public and Private Summerland wine tours now available!
Leave the city behind and take a one of our relaxing full-day Summerland Wine Tours. The #bottleneckdrive combines the best of the Lake, the Valley, and the Vines. As we head a little further south, we will start to find some bold reds and heartier whites. We will also see a change in the terroir. The land changes from the heavy rock and slate of West Kelowna to the wind-blown sandstone hills of Summerland. While taking it all in you will visit 5-6 wineries which includes a full facility tour at either Sumac Ridge or Fitzpatrick @ Greata Ranch (when available)*. Other featured wineries include the following: Saxon, Sage Hills, Thornhaven Estates, Lunessence, Silk Scarf, 8th Generation with a break for lunch at Dirty Laundry Vineyards. Lunch is at guest expense.
The wineries along the Bottleneck Drive have a “mom-and-pop shop” feel to them, as they are mainly boutique, family run wineries. Many of the wines are award-winning, and the proprietors won’t let that go to their heads. The warm, welcoming hellos make it all worthwhile, and the award-winning wines don’t hurt! Join us for a full day adventure, as these Summerland wine tours definitely deserve a full day. Adventure Awaits! #adatwithdot
Fun Fact: Both Sumac Ridge and Fitzpatrick @ Greata Ranch are iconic properties, in their own right, and they both make bubbly “Method Classic” – the true Champagne Style. We aren’t allowed to call it Champagne if it’s made in Canada, that term is saved for Champagne France.
