It was pretty close to the end of April... you could say 'It's Gonna Be May'...

I was part of a group of 10 who did a Naramata Wine Tour with Nick and we ALL had a really great time!

At one of the earlier wineries we visited, our group was split at two tables and Nick was able to sit with my table (with his water!). After our tasting I had the opportunity to chat with Nick and he shared some information about the winery's story that wasn't shared during the tasting - which was a total bonus.

We went earlier in the season, and the wineries were still a bit quieter, so we moved quickly through the wineries we had planned, and through Nick's recommendations too, so we were also able to stop at a couple extras - another bonus!

If you can get a group of friends together and do a tour with Nick I would highly recommend it.

Also, I would suggest bringing some snacks and creating your perfect wine tour playlist ahead of time so you can sit back and enjoy your tunes while you enjoy the view from the comfortable van between the tastings!

Thanks Nick!

Connoisseur Wine Tours provides us with a great weekend full of wine touring. The company was professional, timely and knowledgeable. They even made accommodations to the booking times for our schedule and were flexible with pick up and drop off points. Would highly recommend this wine tour company.

Cheers!

We had such a great day with Nick! His knowledge of the region and his relationships with the wineries really stood out. He is very easygoing and did everything he could to ensure we had a great day. I will definitely be using this company in the future!!

10/10 would recommend hiring Nick for your wine tour !!!! The van was spacious and clean, he let us play our own music while driving, and we got to choose which wineries we wanted to visit.

Nick set up tasting reservations for us, including a stop for lunch. Everyone at the wineries seemed to know him and treated us very well! The wineries weren't very busy (it was still April), so our tastings went by quicker than usual -- Nick was great to schedule a couple more before ending off our tour. We ended up visiting 8 wineries!! It was an awesome day.
