Tried, Tested and True… The BC Wine Tour Handbook was conceptualized in the late 1990s when the need to replace the napkins people were writing notes on during tastings was recognized. In 2002 when the interior region’s winery count nearly doubled to 60 wineries… the time was right to launch our first issue. The convenient carrying size, comprehensive content and beautiful design that expertly showcases British Columbia’s wine regions has proven to be a valuable tool for all levels of wine enthusiasts.
On a recent visit to the Okanagan I re-encountered the BC Wine Tour Handbook. As should be for a consumer guide it is crammed with detail on wineries, restaurants and attractions. And the so-important maps. What I appreciated is the scope and tone of the editorial. Compared to industry generated PR content, it is refreshingly objective, educational and well written.
My compliments on this Handbook. Everything anyone would want to know about B.C.’s Winery industry is all there and it is all presented in a very pleasing, tasteful and professional manner. It is truly an outstanding piece of work.
This book is a wonderful publication which I use all summer when guests arrive and we start our touring. Last weekend our daughter was here and we toured SE Kelowna. We drove to Double Cross Cidery on Sunday as it said on their website they were open until 4:00 p.m. When we entered their road from the main highway they even had a sign that said they were ‘open’. Even if they had been open we were shocked to see the premises, and there was a little hand written sign laying against the wall with their name “Double Cross Cidery”. Just a suggestion that perhaps someone could take a look at this business next year before they make it into the beautiful book. We loved Camelot, House of Rose, and Vibrant Vines! Again, thank you for such a comprehensive, colourful publication. Resident of Kelowna since 2016 and loving it!!
