Book Description

April 2 2012

The lush Okanagan Valley is internationally acclaimed for its wines. John Schreiner's Okanagan Wine Tour Guide, completely updated, reflects the most recent changes in the region's wine industry and provides succinct insider profiles of the more than 150 wineries in the Okanagan.
The Okanagan Valley produces 95 percent of British Columbia's wines. This comprehensive guide features thumbnail sketches of wineries and winemakers and is peppered with fascinating facts about the region, drawn from Schreiner's own winery visits. Also included are Schreiner's recommendations for what to sample from each cellar.
All the information you need to take a self-guided tour of the wine regions is here. "Geography for Wine Tourists," a chapter on the many Okanagan wine regions and the wineries to be found in them, has been expanded to include new wineries and a new region, the Thompson River Valley. Also included is a detailed map of the Okanagan, with all the wineries marked, as well as addresses, telephone numbers, and website addresses for each winery.

“No serious wine tourist should hit the road without reference to

John Schreiner’s Okanagan Wine Tour Guide.” —Laurie Carter,

Bloganagan

“John Schreiner’s is the palate I will trust blindly because he (a) always gets his facts right (it comes from spending many years as a business and financial journalist), and (b) knows not just what he likes but how to make it himself. If he says it’s there, there it is. If he says it’s good, you’ve got to get it. At $19.95, the Whitecap-published paperback is the single best investment you can make when setting out to acquire Okanagan wine.” —Jurgen Gothe, the

Georgia Straight

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming Book May 18 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
John Schreiner's Okanagan Wine Tour Guide is a charming look at the wineries, winemakers, and growers of the Okanagan Valley.
If you are looking for an actual 'Tour Guide' this is not it. For that you are better off visiting something along the lines of "The Okanagan Wine Guide" (can be found for free online).
However, for a great look at the Okanagan Wine Industry from the inside out, and to really get to know the wineries that form its backbone, this is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading. March 22 2014
Format:Paperback
If you know nothing of Okanagan wine, then you have a treat in store. It's the best. HUGELY well kept secret, especially Marichel Vineyards Syrah...but that's another story. If you're getting ready to go touring, this is your definitive guide. There's a new one coming out April 15, and I'm in line to get it. I go every year and load up, and this is THE guide to get you to the best places. Wine tells a story of the land and the season: John Schreiner tells the story of the winery and the vintners.
His first book "British Columbia Wine Country" is the best place to start, with each of these guides acting as a supplement to the book as new wineries open, some are sold, some close etc. BC Wine Country has maps, terroir information and some background on older wineries and how the industry came to be in this part of the world. A little out dated, but still well worth picking up.

I thought it had everything I was looking for as an aid to the tour. MY disappointment was it didn't any detail maps although all the wineries listed gave addresses and most phone numbers. With out local maps the addresses are not much help to a stranger to the area.

This fourth edition of Schreiner's guide to the picturesque Okanagan Valley of British Columbia is easy to use and provides all the essential information necessary in its insider guide profiles, including hours of operation, phone number and if restaurant/foodservice/picnicing facilities are available at the winery. Schreiner is a wine tourist himself and writes with the passion and enthusiasm of someone who enjoys being around "the colorful and creative people" who produce some of the world's finest wines.
