This is a completely private tour, exclusive to your booking. 

 

Check out our Partner Wineries for the 2022 season! Specially selected for their outstanding wines and memorable vineyards, groups of up to 14 guests on our Experience Tour will be treated to five 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 5 exclusive tasting locations by 11:00am. Guests arrive to a table, chairs, their own personal Grape Savvy wine glass, and note pad for tasting notes.

This full-service approach applies to the first two stops of the day. After a catered lunch from the highly acclaimed Brodo Kitchen at the second location, the three afternoon stops are slightly more of the traditional winery tasting style, with Savannah's knowledge and industry teachings a unique element. 

Expect your day to last until approximately 5:00pm - 5:30pm, when you will be returned to your chosen Penticton location. 

 

 

 

For each of the 4 selected wines at each of the 5 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.
