View of Skaha Lake
Hop on a shuttle from either the Ramada Penticton Hotel and Suites or the Penticton Lakeside Resort in the morning and set off to your first of four destinations in the Okanagan Valley. You also have the option to add on a 3-course, wine-paired dinner at the Hooded Merganser Restaurant, located on Penticton’s waterfront, next to the Penticton Lakeside Resort. (Please note that you will need to make your own transportation arrangements for dinner.)
First, spend about an hour at a winery overlooking Skaha Lake. After a wine tasting, head into the winery’s natural rock cellar and barrel room. You could also experience a rare barrel tasting, depending on when during the year you visit.
Continue to a winery and creamery, where they handcraft both wine and cheese. Savor a perfectly paired tasting, and learn about what's involved in making these two products.
At Bad Tattoo Brewing, one of the newest and fastest-growing breweries in British Columbia, enjoy lunch, a brewery tour, and a tank tasting. Sample their craft brews from traditional ale, pilsners, and lagers, to seasonal specialties such as Midnight Hopmare Black IPA and Waes Hael.
Journey to Maple Leaf Spirits, an award-winning small-batch, artisan craft distillery. Taste delicious European-style fruit brandies, spirits, and liqueurs, along with seasonal fruit and a spirits-infused dessert.
Your tour ends with drop-off at the departure point in the late afternoon.
