COVID -19 update:
Following BC’s provincial health guidelines, we are adjusting our business to this current situation and wanted to update our guests of the changes. We care deeply about the safety of our guests and tour guides, and as you know, we work closely with many tourism partners, who are doing the same.
We will do our best to keep a 2 metre distance when traveling to each winery/brewery, the vehicles with be sanitized before and after tour, and disposable masks and water bottles are provided if you do not bring your own. We also have eliminated some lunch stops at this time to reduce potential exposure, and we ask that you carry your own purchases to the vehicle.
At this time, we are offering wine tours with a minimum of 4 guests.
It is possible to take a larger groups, but there are some limitations. Please call the office to confirm what is available.
**COVID-19 changes and updates are constant in the tourism industry, so the website might not reflect those changes right away.
Please call the office for any questions and we can chat about tour options for your group.
1. Anyone showing flu like symptoms in the last 10 days is asked to postpone their visit
2. Anyone who has been outside the country or has been in contact with anyone with COVID-19 symptoms is asked to postpone their visit for at least 14 days from that date.
