Reviews about John Schreiner's Okanagan Wine Tour Guide (7):
Yozshugore
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!

This book lacks pictures, but has a lot of information for anyone travelling through the Okanagan Valley interested in wineries.

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

A great guide for wine lovers, This book it will help you tour every winery @ the Okanagan Valley! A must have!

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.

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
