Kamloops Winery Tours - A Delicious New Experience

Kamloops winery tours are for those who like wine and enjoy new taste experiences?

Exploring these new wineries is the newest and perhaps fastest growing activity in the Sun Peaks Resort and surrounding Kamloops area - which is great because we both love Sun Peaks and we both love wine!

If beer is more your thing, there are also great craft brewery tours available.

While the southern Okanagan 'Wine Country' wineries have already become world famous for their fantastic wines over the past number of years, the Thompson Shuswap area hasn't been thought of as a wine region.

Until now that is.

Enter several couples and families who both have a passion for excellent wines and who had a vision for developing the wine tourism industry in the Kamloops area, where the climate and soil also produce great conditions for growing certain types of vines.

With both new Kamloops winery tours opening their doors to the wine-loving public in 2013, self-drive and even luxurious escorted wine tours from Sun Peaks are now available seasonally and are an easy and enjoyable trip from Sun Peaks Resort.

However if you are driving yourselves, please drink responsibly and do not drink and drive!

There are now four new wineries that make up the Kamloops Wine Trail, with more expected to follow given the early success of these initial wineries: Privato Vineyard and Winery,  Harper's Trail Wineryand Monte Creek Ranch Winery.  There is also Sagewood Winery which is a 4th Kamloops winery but isn't part of the official "Kamloops Wine Trail".

All are uniquely different, but all share the desire for showing locals and visitors from around the world that Kamloops and the Thompson Shuswap area is ready to become an award-winning producer of world-class wines.

We would be happy to put together a custom winery tour package for you, including a stay in our Best Sun Peaks condo in Stone's Throw at Sun Peaks Resort or our larger but equally beautiful Trapper's Landing townhouse, and a fully escorted, luxurious, half or full-day of touring Kamloops and/or Shuswap wineries

Tours go regularly during summer and by request spring, fall and winter at Sun Peaks.  Kamloops craft beer tours are also now available, or combination tours can be arranged.
