Enjoy the beauty of winter in Kelowna and explore the Okanagan's best wineries on a winter tour! Our wine tours are available all year round, giving guests unique opportunities to experience exclusive tastings and tours. Even during the cooler months, you can get up close and personal with the winemakers, explore behind-the-scenes experiences, and enjoy an intimate understanding of what wine tours in Kelowna have to offer.
Private wine tours are ideal for bachelorette parties! From guided tastings to chartered transportation, we have everything you need to make your Kelowna bachelorette one that your group will never forget. A private tour option is available for all of our Okanagan wine tours.
Pick-up at Sparkling Hill Resort Vernon is available for an additional $150. Pick-up at Sparkling Hill Resort is not available for Express Wine Tours.
Winery and facility tasting fees are included in tour rates. The number and variety of wines offered at wineries are subject to change and are at their discretion. Most wineries offer 4-5 samples at each stop.
Wine tours exclude the cost of lunch. Wicked Wine Tours handle the restaurant reservations and guests pay the restaurant directly. Dining requests are welcome but not guaranteed. Wicked Wine Tours is NOT responsible for communicating food allergies, or dietary restrictions, and guests should inform the restaurant upon arrival. Most Okanagan restaurants offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options.
Your guide will collect payment after the tour. We accept cash, debit, and credit cards, including American Express, MasterCard, and Visa. Gratuities are not included, except for groups of eight or more and private tours, where an 18% gratuity applies.
Plans sometimes change. We get it; it happens to us too. So we're happy to provide a hassle-free, 100% refund if you give us 48 hours notice (24 hours for shuttles). Within 48 hours, we've already started preparing for your tour, and we can't easily fill your slot, so we can't provide you with a refund in that case, and there is a 100% charge for the entire invoice. Very rarely, we're the ones that have to cancel. We'll try really, really hard not to, but if we do, we'll ask if you prefer to reschedule or have us refund you. Should government restrictions prevent tours from operating, reservations can be rescheduled or are 100% refundable. Private tours require seven days' notice for a 100% refund.
Wicked Wine Tours is proud to maintain a modern and immaculately maintained fleet. Our fleet includes late-model Ford Transit vans Lincoln Navigator SUVs. With us, no bus!
Tours are available to book online all year for groups of 2-14 guests. We can accommodate group sizes upwards of 50: please get in touch with us for more information and a personalized quote. Large groups travel together in our fleet but may be separated into smaller groups at facilities.
We are pleased to offer complimentary pick-up and drop-off at most Kelowna locations, including hotels, Airbnb, B&Bs, and residences. We aim to provide guests with a safe and convenient service while ensuring adequate time is spent tasting and not riding in a vehicle!
We understand that our region offers various accommodation options outside our pick-up zone. Guests staying outside these areas may be eligible for pick-up for an additional fee of $10-20 per person, depending on group size and requested location. These locations include:
- Black Mountain
- Gallagher's Canyon
- McKinley Landing
- Quail Ridge
- University of British Columbia Okanagan (UBCO)
- Upper Mission
Wine tour pick-up is unavailable at Big White Resort or La Casa Resort. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Wine tours are fun for non-drinkers, too! We have special tour rates for adult guests who choose not to participate in wine tasting, and 'riders' receive tasty, locally-made Motherlove Kombucha.
The consumption of alcohol in motor vehicles in British Columbia is against the law. We encourage you to have fun, but please be aware of local laws; safety is paramount.
Wine and cheese are a great pairing, but not so much in a vehicle. We take great pride in maintaining an impeccable fleet, and that includes ensuring guests don't smell cheese smashed into our carpet! Outside food or beverages are not permitted. Complimentary bottled water is provided.
Tours are designed for guests of legal consumption age, and many guests appreciate the opportunity for an adult environment. Children under 19 are not permitted on public tours but may be allowed on private tours. Rotary Centre for the Arts offers art camps for children ages 5-12 throughout the summer.
We love animals, too! For allergy and cleanliness reasons, pets are not permitted, no matter how well-trained or adorable.
Tours operate rain or shine. Wine tastings are usually inside tasting rooms, cellars, or under covered patios, and we offer complimentary umbrellas. Rainy days are an excellent time for wine tours: you're not missing a day on the beach or the golf course! Please dress accordingly.
Itineraries are listed on each tour. Winery requests are welcome but not guaranteed.
Tour schedules are based on winery and restaurant availability and cannot be adjusted for public wine tours. However, private wine tours are available for custom itineraries and requests.
Reservations are available for single guests on most tours. Public tours require a minimum of two guests to operate. If the tour capacity is unmet, we will contact you to schedule an available tour or refund your deposit. Pick-up requests are not guaranteed for single guests. You may be asked to meet at a central location for pick-up/drop-off. If pick-up at your requested location is unavailable, we will contact you 24 hours before your tour to schedule an alternate location.
