“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.

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!

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

I thought it had everything I was looking for as an aid to the tour. MY disappointment was it didn't any detail maps although all the wineries listed gave addresses and most phone numbers. With out local maps the addresses are not much help to a stranger to the area.

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.
