Frequently Asked Questions

Bachelorette Wine Tours

Accessible Vehicles

We regret that our fleet does not include wheelchair-accessible vehicles. We plan to add this service in the future.

Alcohol

In accordance with provincial legislation, the consumption of alcohol and cannabis in motor vehicles is illegal and NOT permitted.

Bachelorette Guests

We welcome (and rock) bachelor/ette groups! Guests are asked to wear appropriate attire and be respectful of other tour and winery guests. Please note that a select few facilities do not permit bachelorette groups; rest assured we have the expertise and we will coordinate alternate (excellent!) stops accordingly. Rates are the same regardless of the size or nature of the group.

Cancellation

To guarantee an exceptional experience, Wicked Wine Tours makes every effort to personalize your tour and secure your requested date and times, including committing our vehicles and Tour Guides to your reservation. Advance requests and appointments may also be required at wineries depending on season and guest requests, as many wineries only accept visitors by appointment. Upon reservation, Wicked Wine Tours will request a 20% deposit to confirm your reservation. Guests have up to seven days prior to the reservation to cancel with no penalty. CANCELLING OR REDUCING THE NUMBER OF GUESTS LESS THAN SEVEN DAYS PRIOR TO THE RESERVATION DATE FOR ANY REASON WILL RESULT IN 100% CHARGE OF THE FULL RESERVATION. FOR GROUPS OF TEN OR MORE GUESTS, THE DEPOSIT IS NON-REFUNDABLE.

Private Tours

Groups of ten or more guests are considered private. Should your group be less than ten, you may purchase ten seats to guarantee a private tour. For groups of eight or more guests, an 18% gratuity will be added.

Rain

Tours operate rain or shine. Tastings are typically experienced inside tasting rooms, wine cellars, or beneath covered patios, and our vehicles feature complimentary umbrellas for guest use. Rainy days are an excellent time for wine touring, as you're not missing a day on the beach or golf course!

Scents

Tasting wine is a sensory experience, including the sense of smell. Cologne and perfume can have an adverse effect on you and your party's tasting experience, and on the experience of other guests visiting the winery. Please refrain from wearing cologne, perfume, and other heavy scents when embarking on your wine tour. Lipstick and lip gloss can also have an detrimental effect on your tasting experience.

Tasting Fees

Wherever possible, winery and facility tasting fees are included in tour rates. Your Tour Guide will advise you when you visit a facility where tasting fees are not included (i.e. premium or icewine fees). The number and variety of wines offered at wineries is subject to change and is at the sole discretion of the facility.

Vehicles

​Wicked Wine Tours is proud to offer our guests a modern fleet of Ford Transit passenger vans, and Ford Expedition luxury SUVs. With us, no bus!

Wineries

​Wineries are pre-selected based on the size and nature of reservations, winery availability, holidays, special events, and other factors. Our half-day tours feature visits to four wineries, and our longer excursions feature visits to five facilities, and often include enhanced tasting experiences. The DETAILS section of each of our online tour listings has links and photos to wineries. Facility requests are welcome, but not guaranteed. 

Winter Tours

Wicked Wine Tours are available year-round, including throughout Winter. The quiet season - November through March - is an excellent time to enjoy wine touring and tasting in the Okanagan Valley. Tastings and tours are often private, and guests may experience behind-the-scenes and intimate experiences not possible during the busier summer months. BOOK NOW.
