Description

Explore British Columbia's world famous wine region with wine expert John Schreiner. The lush Okanagan Valley is internationally acclaimed for its wine industry. Updated and revised with 30 percent new material, John Schreiner's Okanagan Wine Tour Guide provides succinct, insider profiles of each winery. Included are thumbnail sketches of proprietors, winemakers, and well-known wineries as well as many new ones. Schreiner peppers the book with fascinating facts acquired through his winery visits: Crowsnest Vineyards offers a red wine from the improbably named Samtrot grape; Hunting Hawk Vineyards has a second winery at the historic O'Keefe Ranch in Vernon, British Columbia; and Two Thumbs Up was the name of the Okanagan's first $100-a-bottle Meritage wine. Schreiner guides the wine tourist to the best wines by sharing his own favorites from the region. Maps, addresses, telephone numbers and website addresses round out this valuable tour guide.
