Wine Tours

TasteFull Excursions offers tours from Sun Peaks taking you on an adventure to experience the flavours of some of BC's award winning wineries.

kamloops wine trail

Experience BC's newest wine experience, the Kamloops Wine Trail.  Commence your journey taking a ride along the Thompson River on the historic McClure Ferry, a quick trip that offers a unique waterside view of the riverbanks and the local wildlife's natural habitat.  Your tour will then take you to three wineries that capture the minerality and crisp acidity that is becoming known to the area.

Privato Winery
The inspiration behind the name Privato comes from the Italian word meaning private which aptly describes the winery's idyllic setting. A hidden gem in the heart of BC's exciting Thompson Valley wine region, Privato is a family owned boutique winery dedicated to the production of premium Burgundian styled wines.

Monte Creek Ranch Winery
Forging a new era of exploration for the Thompson Valley, Monte Creek Ranch offers the next frontier in winemaking. Just a 10 minute drive outside Kamloops City limits, Monte Creek Ranch aims to follow in the footsteps of the area's early explorers and uncover what the land can offer. Monte Creek Ranch also has an expansive full-service patio overlooking their vineyards where guests are welcome to choose items from their locally-sourced menu at their own expense.

Harper’s Trail Estate Winery
Named for the cattle drive “trail” of pioneer rancher Thaddeus Harper, Harper's Trail Estate Winery is the closest winery to Kamloops. Tucked into the city outskirts on the bank of the South Thompson River, the winery sits among rolling hills of sage and grass and is home to Bighorn sheep. The backdrop of limestone, Hoodoos, and a natural spring reflect the biodiversity of this rare place.

shuswap wine trail

Beautiful and relaxing scenic drives, great wines, diverse vineyards, and good company combine to ensure that guests enjoy this memorable day of wine tasting. Shuswap Lake is renowned as a summer vacation destination yet hidden within the folds of its’ rolling hills are several wineries producing distinctive wines in the vicinity of the town of Salmon Arm.

The Secret Sips Tour visits a selection of four wineries:

Celista Estate Winery
This “hidden paradise” has earned over 20 medals in wine competitions over four years. Marg & Jake Ootes have realized their dreams in this award-winning 160-acre farm and vineyard located in Celista, a small community on the north shore of Shuswap Lake.

Larch Hills Winery
This picturesque winery cultivates British Columbia’s highest elevation vineyard at 2,480 feet. The distant vista from the top of the steep south-facing vineyard opens up to the beginning of the Okanagan Valley. Opened in April 1997 with a small release of what has become their signature wine — Ortega (vintage 1995).  

Marionette Winery
This mystical winery embraces its’ heritage and artistic philosophy. Many years ago a family of artists and performers lived on the property where the winery now exists.  They traveled in beautifully painted, horse drawn caravans to perform shows which featured handmade marionettes – and inspired the name of the winery. This young collection of wine entrepreneurs are passionate about their craft and delivering a memorable wine experience for their guests.
