Oliver Osoyoos

We believe in every wine experience there is a great story to tell
we want to share that story

Welcome to Canada’s only desert and discover the magic of the Oliver-Osoyoos wine country.  With two unique appellations including the Golden Mile on the west side of the valley and The Black Sage Bench on the east slopes, this is some of the most valuable agricultural land in all of Canada.  The result?  Exceptional wines!

With over 40 wineries in this region, there is something for everyone from big bold reds to mouth-watering crisp wines.  To complete our culinary adventure, we stop at one of the award-winning winery bistros (or select our gourmet 3 course picnic) for a delicious lunch.  The Oliver-Osoyoos wine tour has it all, from boutique wineries to big brand wineries.

Myself and 3 other ladies had a fantastic time on the Grape Escapes wine tour. Our tour guide Rod was so knowledgeable and fun and we had a great time at all the wineries we visited. 100% would recommend Grape Escapes and Rod to tourists and locals alike.

I chose Grape Escapes based on their positive reviews and the experience and impressive qualifications of their staff. WSET Level 4 is serious business! They definitely know a thing or two about wine and great customer service. We booked the Oliver & Osoyoos tour online as we were interested in trying more of the reds from that region. We were picked up right on time by our guide Rod, in a comfortable Mercedes van and were joined by a fun family from Montreal. We visited the VQA centre before heading out of Penticton and visited 5 wineries in Oliver & Osoyoos. The bread at Platinum Bench was a highlight of the tour as was the delicious wine served in a relaxed & friendly atmosphere at Hester Creek (thanks Sandy!). Rod was always on hand to take pictures and answer questions. He seemed to appear magically with crackers and chocolate exactly when we needed them. The wine shopping bag and the personally labeled wine boxes in the back of the van were also a really nice touch. A note about lunch: The tour includes snacks & water but does not include lunch. However, there are options to suit every budget and taste. We chose to bring our own picnic lunch. There is also the option to pre-purchase a picnic lunch when you book the tour or there are some wineries that sell charcuterie items. Did I already mention the bread at Platinum Bench? Grape Escapes can also make a reservation for you at one of the lovely winery restaurants. Rod presented all of the options to our group and we all enjoyed a picnic lunch together on the patio at Hester Creek. We’ve been lucky enough to visit many wine regions around the world and have had many wonderful memorable experiences. Big thanks to Grape Escapes for adding to that list.
