Third edition of Okanagan Wine Tour Guide
by John Schreiner
Bigger and right up-to-date, the third edition of John Schreiner’s Okanagan Wine Tour Guide will be in book stores and wine shops in early May.
Published by Whitecap Books of North Vancouver, at $19.95, this handy pocket-sized book is now 300 pages and profiles 130 wineries. The second edition in 2007 was 264 pages and profiled 100 wineries.
The book has become, I believe, a popular and helpful adjunct to wine touring, with an excellent winery map. The crisp profiles average about 350 words each, just the right length for a quick read before heading into a winery. Yet the information packed into each profile – backgrounds on the winery principals and winemakers along with wine recommendations -is designed to enrich the touring experience.
The book is bigger to accommodate the additional wineries that have opened or are opening. Indeed, even since The Wineries of British Columbia (500 pages) came out a year ago, about 12 more wineries have emerged. Here are some of the new wineries to be found in the new guide book: For More visit: John Schreiner’s Blog
