Get ready to get Grape Savvy on our Savvy Experience Tour
Check out our Partner Wineries for the 2021 season! Specially selected for their outstanding wines and memorable vineyards, groups of up to 14 guests on our Experience Tour will be treated to four of these iconic Naramata wineries.
Guests will be picked up at their preferred Penticton location between 10:00am and 10:45am and will be chauffeured to the first of the 4 exclusive tasting locations by 11:00am. Guests arrive to a table, chairs, their personal Grape Savvy wine glass, and note pad for their tasting notes.
We will arrive at our second tasting location at 12:15pm. We will have lunch here around 1:30pm.
2:45pm will see us at our third tasting location.
We will be arriving at our fourth and final tasting location at 4:00pm.
Guests will be dropped off at their chosen locations in Penticton between 5:00 - 5:30pm.
For each of the 4 selected wines at each of the 4 tasting locations, guests will learn a basic systematic approach to tastings. We will begin with an appearance assessment where we will assess the color of the wine. Next will be the aroma assessment; one of the greatest pleasures of wine tasting is their aromas - learning about their intensity and the development of primary, secondary and tertiary notes. Each guest will have a chart of basic wine aromas to help assist them in olfactory recognition. To finish, proper palate assessment of the wine will be conducted, where guests will learn about flavor intensity, sweetness, acidity, tannins, body and flavor characteristics.
