We are local to the Okanagan and wanted a little getaway in our own backyard! Kent was a wonderful tour guide for the day taking us to 6 different fabulous wineries in the south Okanagan. He made us feel very Covid safe as did the wineries. Highly recommend Desert Country Wine Tours!

Kent made our wine tour so enjoyable right from the very beginning answering all our questions via email right up to the end of our day’s tour (September 24). Our first wine tour was in 2016 using a Kelowna based company visiting the wineries in Osoyoos and Oliver. That tour was quite hectic (believe we stopped at over 10, which left the tastings to be very rushed) whereas Kent made sure we had enough time at each winery to fully enjoy the experience and learn about the agriculture of the area to understand how the land created such diverse wines. We were the first couple to book that day and he asked us of our wine preferences, wineries that we wanted to see or those that we didn’t want to see (we had a few favourites from 2016 but otherwise wanted to see new ones that we heard about). To us, this was a very conscientious way of ensuring that the guests would enjoy visiting the wineries selected based on your wine preferences (Rob likes Merlot whereas red wine makes me sleepy, though I love a full bodied, oaky red. I prefer Pinot Gris, Pinot Grigio, Rose & Riesling, Sauv Blanc gives me headaches, not sure why!) and made it that much more personal. We were joined by 2 other couples who were each celebrating their milestone anniversaries and they were very fun. This tour was to celebrate our early 28th anniversary and my birthday, so it was definitely memorable! Kent also surprised us with a garden tasting at the quaint Stoneboat Winery, which was a pleasant time as well. We stopped for lunch at Tinhorn Creek’s Mirodoro restaurant and Kent joined Rob and myself at our table. We had a wonderful lunch with Kent, getting to know him, his business, background & he answered our questions fully, being very patient with the questions we asked!! In closing, we highly recommend hiring Kent and his tours to really enjoy the wonderful & diverse wineries the beautiful Golden Mile wine regions throughout Oliver & Osoyoos. Our Tour: We booked the 6.25 hour tour and Kent picked us up from the Coast Oliver hotel where we were staying. His van is very comfortable with labeled boxes for our treasures. We joined the wine club at Hester Creek which has wonderful wines along with their next door neighbour Gehringer Bros. Winery (we love their white wines!). All in all, a big thank you to Kent for making our day so much fun and memorable! We wish you lots of continued success in the years ahead! Lisa & Rob from Ladysmith, BC

Kent was an amazing guide. From the ease in communicating over email and planning the day to his overall knowledge of winemaking and maximizing our touring times, he made this a truly memorable experience. He made sure we visited a few of our requested wineries while still having time to fit in a few hidden gems. We will definitely be booking again in our next trip.

Kent was such a great host. He made our wine tour during the COVID pandemic very enjoyable and memorable! His choice of wineries to visit and his lunch choice, were all exceptional. We’ll be back!
