The Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys, just north of the Washington-British Columbia border, are home to more than 200 wineries. Farm to Glass Wine Tours connects guests to the region’s smaller, estate wineries that focus on organic, biodynamic, regenerative and sustainable farming practices.
“Many of the wineries you will visit are friends, so it really creates an intimate feeling,” says owner Jess Hopwood. “Imagine that you are standing under an apricot tree with a stunning view of Okanagan Lake, birds happily chirping and a breeze rustling through your hair, tasting wine that was made footsteps from where you are standing, while chatting with the winemaker. It connects you to the wine and the land in a way many have never experienced before. That’s what I want to accomplish on every tour.”
Farm to Glass Wine Tours offers a variety of tours, such as a Woman Winemaker Tour and a Natural Wine Tour. In addition, they have introduced some family-friendly wine tours.
