About Us

We want to make sure you have a grape time!

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.

After settling into beautiful Penticton, they wanted to show case Okanagan wineries, lakes and scenic beauty. They started courses at Community Futures to bring together a great business foundation and fundamentals needed to start a business. We then sat down with a glass of Okanagan wine and did some brainstorming and the ideas were starting to flow; before long Grape Friends was born and the journey began.

That was back in May of 2010 and the rest is history.


“Grape Friends Wine Tours are the best. I have been on several tours and always choose these guys, Karen and Ron, because they always go the extra mile! It was informative and fun and can’t wait until next time. This is a must if you have visitors to the Okanagan.”
