Our newest winery The Chase is scheduled to open in May 2017.  All of our set tours include door to door service, regular tasting fees, chilled bottled water and a souvenir Sip Happens Wine Tours stemless wine glass for each guest.

Custom  Tours 

If you have the perfect tour in mind, we can bring it to reality. With your input (or without) we can design a custom itinerary that fulfills every wine tour desire you have. Imagine planning a romantic proposal at a breathtaking vineyard with a bottle of chilled sparkling wine and a dozen red roses to accompany it.  Planning a birthday celebration, an anniversary or bridal event. All can be custom designed to suit your every wish.

Perhaps you’d like to see specific wineries in certain regions, From Oliver/Osoyoos down south all the way to the northern bench, you choose the vineyards you want to see and we will make (Sip) happen!  We are happy to provide personalized tours and/or private tours for groups of 2 to 11.

Sip Happens Wine Tours is based in Lake Country and we are proud to spotlight The Scenic Sip Wine Trail. Grapes on the vine, breathtaking views, and some of the best wine the Okanagan Valley has to offer,  Lake Country is a vintners sweet spot.  Little micro climates and close proximity to Lake Okanagan make for some very happy vines and equally fine wine!

Here’s to you happy sippers on our Sip Happens Wine Tours!!
