“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

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.

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.

HASH(0xa0d0783c) out of 5 stars Wine Country Canada April 2 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Buy this book BEFORE you go and read it! Knowing something about the wineries before you arrive makes for a great introduction. It also is an ice-breaker when you are speaking with one of the owners and can relate something you have read in the book. Check out some of the lesser known wineries and you will be pleasantly surprised....Silver Sage and Rustico Cellars....looking for photos? Google 'Grape Escape' for our 2011 trip through Okanagan and Napa Valleys!

We used the book to decide which wineries to visit. It gave good descriptions with lots of insider information.

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.
HASH(0x9fcde258) out of 5 stars Great Collection of Insider Profiles June 5 2012
By Dee Long - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.
HASH(0x9fcde738) out of 5 stars Must Have WIne Touring Guide June 27 2011
By Laurie Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
John Schreiner is the guru. I live in the Okanagan Valley and I consider this book a must-have reference when trying to keep up with the burgeoning wine industry here. I immediately buy each new addition as soon as it comes out. What I like best about the book is the backstory on the people involved with the wineries. You can get tasting notes on a website, but Schreiner introduces the faces and interesting stories behind the labels and marketing. I think so highly of Schreiner and his guide that I referred to him several times in my own book, Grandma Wears Hiking Boots: a personal guide to the Okanagan Valley.Grandma Wears Hiking Boots: A personal guide to the Okanagan Valley
