Penticton and the South Okanagan are really getting their share of Craft Breweries and Craft Distilleries. Come see what this area has to offer and take a Custom Buddies Tour!


This very popular region now has over 40 established wineries in the Naramata Bench. We think you may need more than one day to tour to get them all in!!


Nestled in and around the surrounding rolling foothills of Giant’s Head Mountain in the heart of Summerland, this area has come to be known as the Bottleneck Drive.


There are so many award-winning wineries in Okanagan Falls – affectionately called OK Falls. Choose from 18 fabulous, amazing wineries that are waiting for you to check them out!


Visit these award-winning wineries! Since there are 2 very unique regions, Black Sage and Golden Mile, you have to decide which one you want to explore! Let us help you out and make it really easy for you… “Just visit both!”


Head south to the furthest region of the South Okanagan and you will still get to sample some great award-winning wines. There are 8 hidden gems in Osoyoos you do not want to miss!

Say hello to Karen Donison and Ron Jaggard, founders and operators of Grape Friends Lounge & Tours Inc. They left their jobs on the Pacific Coast to come and follow their passion for wine and a more leisurely lifestyle and left the fast pace of the Lower Mainland behind.

"Fantastic tour with an awesome host, definitely worth it! Had a blast going to 3 wineries and learning more about wine and our preferences. Was our first wine tour and we would definitely book another tour with them :)"
