Wine tour! * UPDATE *

wine silhouettesHello oenophiles!
We are very pleased to say that the wine tour is a GO! Currently there are 27 of us on the bus to debauchery! There is still room to join us, so if you’re on the fence, tip your glass this way and let us know. Also, thanks to the great response, the price has dropped to $100 per person. My Uncle Hugh has taken it upon himself to organize a great selection of wine tastings in the region and a preliminary schedule has been drawn up.
We will be departing Sorrento at 8:30am on Monday July 8th with stops at the following:

• Larch Hills Winery
• Arrowleaf Cellars
• Gray Monk Winery (for tasting, tour and lunch)
• The Meadery at Planet Bee
• Sunnybrae Winery

The bus will be returning to Sorrento by 6pm, and my mom has very kindly offered to host a BBQ at her cottage for all involved.

Can’t wait!

L & D
P.S. Stay tuned for an update on Golfing – the fun just keeps coming!

Original Post:

Anyone out there like wine?
Yeah, we thought so.
If you’re sticking around post-nuptials, perhaps you’d like to indulge in a little wine tour with us. We’re proposing a charter bus to take us around to several wineries in the region with tastings, lunch and scenery included. The bus would pick us up in Sorrento so no one has to worry about driving (especially the Aussies who will already look inebriated on the “right” side of the road) ;). Lunch will most likely be at Grey Monk Winery overlooking beautiful Okanagan Lake.

Depending on numbers, the all-inclusive cost will be no more than $125 each (not bad for your own chauffeur, samples of quality local vintages and a scrumptious lunch). Wineries will be hand-picked for our own custom tour.
We would like to get a rough idea of how many of you are truly interested in order to book it all (and no be left in debt), so if you want a seat on the ‘vino vagon’ –  hands up! Please reply promptly in the comments below or email us at

Who: Anyone of legal age (18+)
When: Monday, 8th July, morning until evening (approx 8am – 6pm)
Where: Pick up/drop off in Sorrento; wineries in the Winfield/Kelowna area
What: Charter bus (max seats 36), wine tastings at several wineries, lunch, great company
Why: Wine not?

Oh and a BBQ afterwards at Leandra’s mom’s cottage! 🙂

Hope you can join us!

P.S. If wine isn’t your thing, don’t worry – there’s plenty more to do in the area.

  1. Sounds like fun Leandra but we are headed east to the mountains for a few days and into Alberta before heading back home. Hope you are able to fill that vino wagon with lots of thirsty oenophiles! xo Nancy
