They're taking bookings for spring 2020! 🍷
B.C. is Canada's wine hot-spot and we couldn't feel more blessed. From pinot noir to chardonnay, we make it all right in our province. While wine tasting is wonderful, there is always the added stress of having to find a designated driver. But not anymore. A hop-on-hop-off B.C. wine shuttle run by OK Wine Shuttle will take you to six amazing wineries around the Okanagan. It's seriously the best way to taste as much wine as possible without needing to worry about getting to and from each place.
The Okanagan in B.C. has some. In fact, this area is one of the in the entire world.
This shuttle bus system that will take you around to some of the best wineries in the area makes the region even better for wine lovers from near and far.
OK Wine Shuttle is a hop-on-hop-off style bus that can take up to 14 people to six different wineries. It will pick you up in Osoyoos, wherever you are located, and go from there.
The driving route is one big circle but it is way too far to walk. Especially if you’ve had a few tastings already.
Anyone who is interested can literally hop on the bus and hop off whenever they want to hit up a winery on the route list.
From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. it will be the same driver taking you all around so it won't be confusing. Plus, if you buy bottles to take home, you can leave them on the bus.
During the epic wine tour, you will hit up six no fee wineries.
Typically, wineries will charge a tasting fee of anywhere from $5 to $10. Sometimes, the fee will be waived if you buy a bottle.
But OK Wine Shuttle will take you to six places that do not expect you to pay to taste the wine. This means your day full of drinking is pretty much free of charge.
The website explains that the following locations are all no fee wineries along the way:
- Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery
- Kismet Winery
- Nk'Mip Cellars
- Rust Wine Co.
- Silver Sage Winery
- Hester Creek Estate Winery
While the wineries don't expect you to pay to sip, the shuttle isn’t free. The wonderful part is that it’s super cheap.
According to their website, it is $60 for a four-hour tour and you can pick any day from Sunday to Friday.
If you are wanting to go longer, it is $85 for six hours during the same days. Though, four hours of wine and sun totally do the trick.
Saturdays are more expensive and will cost you $100 per person for a six-hour tour.
All you need to do to book your time is schedule yourself in by calling or emailing the company.
If the hop-on-hop-off bus isn't your thing, consider hitting up the. It's literally a boozy train ride and it looks amazing.
