A Scenic Drive, Boutique Wineries, and a Delicious Lunch

We start at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery. The winery’s founder, Harry McWaters, was instrumental in the development of the wine industry here in the Okanagan, so it’s a great place to start our day. After Sumac Ridge, we visit Dirty Laundry Vineyard — a fun location with beautiful vistas — then move on to Thornhaven Estates, a charming boutique winery.

We enjoy a delicious lunch at Evolve Cellars, known throughout the region for their great food and stunning views. Our afternoon is spent exploring more of the wineries, such as 8th generation Vineyard, before we begin our scenic drive home to Vernon.


Time for lunch is included, and we make all the arrangements. Snacks on the bus include water, cheese, and crackers. We serve Balderson’s old cheddar, wonderful crackers, chocolate, and more delightful litter snacks. Please call for last minute bookings.
