To make un-fine wine, simply place grapes beneath a silk pillow, repeatedly mash your head against it, and then wring the pillowcase into a nearby mouth. Taste traditionally produced fine wines with today’s Groupon: for $84, you get either the Naramata Wine Tour or the Kelowna Wine Tour from Destination Tours (a $140 value, with taxes included). This offer only includes the guided visits to local wineries, tastings, and transportation. You may apply your Groupon toward an upgrade for accommodations and more.
Tipplers who choose the Naramata Wine Tour will traverse the vineyard-lined vistas of the Naramata Bench, visiting five to seven wineries, such as Elephant Island Orchard Wines, Laughing Stock Vineyards, and Red Rooster Winery. The Kelowna Wine Tour leads libation lovers into the sun-soaked wealth of Kelowna’s wineries, with such featured stops as the Mission Hill Family Estate and Quails’ Gate. Guided by an expert in the ways of wining, both tours regale visitors with tales of grapedom and include chauffeured transportation, ensuring guests will save enough energy for decadent imbibing. Naramata pick-up and drop-off is at the Summerland Waterfront Resort & Spa, about a five-hour drive from Vancouver; Kelowna pick-up and drop-off is at the Best Western Inn Kelowna, about a 4.5-hour drive.
Groupon purchasers can apply the value of the Groupon toward an upgrade to hotel accommodations, Destination Tours’ Okanagan Wine & Steam-Train Bus tour, or the Oliver Wine Tour. Opt for the upgrade and enjoy a wine-soaked weekend away from the rampant robots trying to break out of the padlocked cellar with an outing from Destination Tours.
These tours are not recommended for individuals under the age of 19.
