UPDATE FOR 2021– OKWS did not run in 2020 owing to COVID. We hope to run our Osoyoos wine tours in 2021 starting the May long weekend. BUT we will not make the decision to run until the end of April and will update this site accordingly for bookings at that time.

Private Wine Tours - ideal for stagettes
OKWS offers private wine tours from April thru Thanksgiving. Private tours are completely flexible. You choose when you start, where you go and how long you run. You choose the wineries. You also choose if, when and where you stop for lunch. We provide door to door service.
Private tour fares are $125pp - with a 4 person min - OR flat fee private tour rates are:
- 6 hours - 14 passenger shuttle - $1,200 flat fee - note that if you plan to stop for lunch this requires a 6 hour tour
- 4 hours - 14 passenger shuttle - $900 flat fee - does not allow time to stop for lunch
Note that the number of wineries you see depends entirely on where you go and how long you lunch - generally over 4 hours you will see up to 6 wineries (six 30 minute tastings) - and over 6 hours you will typically see 6 to 8 wineries and have time to stop for lunch.
Naramata stagettes - effective for 2019 the Naramata wineries no longer service stagettes of any kind - for any tour operator. Stagettes out of Penticton will be run south to the Oliver wineries on either our 4 or 6 hour private tours where we have numerous Oliver wineries that are perfect for your special day.
All prices include taxes but not the cost of lunch.
Tasting Fees - are typically $2 to $5 per person per winery. There are a number of wineries that do not have fees or waive fees for our guests. Fees otherwise charged are typically waived upon the purchase of wine. See Wineries for more information about tasting fees.
