If you're planning a trip to BC's wine country, then you simply must schedule a tour with Experience Wine Tours.
Matt, the exceptional host and driver, picked us up at our hotel to start the day. Before I could even open the door to the van, he'd sprinted out to greet us with a gigantic smile. After a quick round of introductions, we were off to Quail's Gate for an in-depth tour of their vineyards and wine-making facilities. The Quail's Gate trip was capped off, of course, with a tasting.
We left there for two-fer stop at Sand Hill and Calona Vineyards, who share a facility. From there, we were on to Sperling. After our tasting at Sperling, we emerged to an incredible spread of fine meats, cheeses, fruits and vegetables prepared by Matt. He capped off our lunch with one of the best butter tarts I've ever had. Once lunch was done, we were on to several more wineries.
Matt was incredibly polite and knowledgeable. He happily tailored the tour to the tastes of everyone on our group and shared his incredible knowledge of wine, wineries, and the Okanagan Valley.
The tour ended with Matt sharing a few local dinner recommendations. We smartly followed his suggestion and ended our day with an incredible meal.
Here's the best part: Matt did all this only 5 days after his first child was born. Where most of us would be exhausted, overwhelmed, and inclined to stay home, Matt was a consummate professional. Congratulations to him on the new baby & congratulations to you if you choose to spend a day with Experience Wine Tours. You'll not regret ut,
