Be one of the lucky people on the 14th annual BCWAS Bus Tour this September! This year, we’re visiting the legendary Naramata Bench: there's always new wineries opening up to supplement some of our old favourites, so we are really looking forward to visiting the area again! Highlights will include a lunch at Hillside Winery Bistro, a dinner at brand new TIME Winery & Kitchen, and lunch at Lake Breeze Vineyards.
We’ll be based at the Sandman Hotel in Penticton. We’ve reserved a block of rooms (until July 18), and several keeners have already booked! Our nightly rate is $139, and there are rooms that range from single King or Queen Bed to dual Double Bed, and many with kitchens. Hotel amenities include two restaurants (Denny's and Bar One Urban Lounge), indoor pool, hot tub, fitness centre, free WiFi, and room service. Please note that our room rates do not include breakfast - that's what Denny's is for! To reserve, call 250-493-7151 and use Group ID 329552 to get the special rate.
Please note: transportation to/from the Okanagan and accommodation is not included in the tour price, so please make your own arrangements. You don’t have to stay at the Sandman if you have an alternative, but please make sure you are there on time each morning. As always, we recommend that you stay over Sunday night rather than driving back to Vancouver after a long day of wine tasting.
Cost is $385 (for Members)
Our tour includes two gourmet lunches and a multi-course dinner, all paired with wines.
Please let us know in advance if you have allergy concerns.

If this is your first bus tour, you’re in for some real fun, not only visiting the wineries, but getting to know your fellow BCWAS members as well. If you’ve been on a bus tour with us before, we’re looking forward to spending some time with you again. See you in September!
