Based out of Kelowna, Wine Your Way Tours has been taking people to wineries around the Okanagan with an extra bonus thrown in. Shalyn Syrjanen-Ross, your tour guide, is also a certified sommelier. Can’t quite figure out what that last wine tasted like? Maybe she can help. What did they mean at that last winery when they said that this wine was aged “sur lie”? Shalyn will be able to explain it to you. And just like a sommelier in a restaurant, she’ll be able to recommend wineries that you might like and customize your tours based on the kind of wines you prefer.
I had a chance to speak with Shalyn about wine touring and all of the fun times that can be had when someone who is passionate and knowledgeable about wine is leading the way.
