“No serious wine tourist should hit the road without reference to

John Schreiner’s Okanagan Wine Tour Guide.” —Laurie Carter,

Bloganagan

“John Schreiner’s is the palate I will trust blindly because he (a) always gets his facts right (it comes from spending many years as a business and financial journalist), and (b) knows not just what he likes but how to make it himself. If he says it’s there, there it is. If he says it’s good, you’ve got to get it. At $19.95, the Whitecap-published paperback is the single best investment you can make when setting out to acquire Okanagan wine.” —Jurgen Gothe, the

Georgia Straight

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

We used the book to decide which wineries to visit. It gave good descriptions with lots of insider information.

John Schreiner is the guru. I live in the Okanagan Valley and I consider this book a must-have reference when trying to keep up with the burgeoning wine industry here. I immediately buy each new addition as soon as it comes out. What I like best about the book is the backstory on the people involved with the wineries. You can get tasting notes on a website, but Schreiner introduces the faces and interesting stories behind the labels and marketing. I think so highly of Schreiner and his guide that I referred to him several times in my own book, Grandma Wears Hiking Boots: a personal guide to the Okanagan Valley.Grandma Wears Hiking Boots: A personal guide to the Okanagan Valley

Format: Paperback
This fourth edition of Schreiner's guide to the picturesque Okanagan Valley of British Columbia is easy to use and provides all the essential information necessary in its insider guide profiles, including hours of operation, phone number and if restaurant/foodservice/picnicing facilities are available at the winery. Schreiner is a wine tourist himself and writes with the passion and enthusiasm of someone who enjoys being around "the colorful and creative people" who produce some of the world's finest wines.

Buy this book BEFORE you go and read it! Knowing something about the wineries before you arrive makes for a great introduction. It also is an ice-breaker when you are speaking with one of the owners and can relate something you have read in the book. Check out some of the lesser known wineries and you will be pleasantly surprised....Silver Sage and Rustico Cellars....looking for photos? Google 'Grape Escape' for our 2011 trip through Okanagan and Napa Valleys!
