A Scenic Drive, Boutique Wineries, and end the day with a Sip of Champagne
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 -known throughout the region for their great food and beautiful vistas — then move on to Thornhaven Estates, a charming boutique winery.
We can book a lunch for you at Dirty Laundry or any other restaurant in the area. In the past we have often provided a picnic lunch for our guests – let us know and we can provide you with a quote for this activity. Our afternoon is spent exploring more of the wineries, such as 8th generation Vineyard, Silk Scarf then our last stop is at Fitzpatrick Family Vineyarsds where we will indulge in a champagne tasting before we begin our scenic drive home to Vernon.
Time for lunch is included, and we make all the arrangements including a picnic lunch if you would like. 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.
