Get immersed in the winemaking process and explore the vineyard

Oliver, BC (June 17, 2016) – Experience a new side of Tinhorn Creek Vineyards this summer with private tour and tasting options that offer a unique opportunity to sample top tier Oldfield Series wines in a private winery setting. Sip award-winning wines ‘behind the scenes’ while discovering innovative winemaking techniques and leading viticultural practices.

Wine enthusiasts and private groups looking for a relaxed, educational and enhanced wine tasting experience can choose from two package options; either a 60 or 90 minute Tour & Oldfield Series Tasting. Both experiences include a guided tour of Tinhorn Creek Vineyards lead by an onsite wine specialist and a premium private tasting featuring five Oldfield Series reserve wines accompanied by a charcuterie plate. The 90-minute tour involves a special glimpse into the winemaking process; it includes a rare opportunity to sample from barrel. Pricing for the 60-minute tour is $30 per person and the 90 minute is $40 per person with a minimum of 6 guests and a maximum of 10. Oldfield Series Tours & Tastings take place at 11am, 2pm or 4pm, seven days a week. Booking is required by calling 1.250.498.3743 or by emailing winery@tinhorn.com.

Tinhorn Creek’s wines have recently been recognized with two awards from the BC Best of Varietal Wine Awards for their 2013 Cabernet Franc and 2012 Oldfield Series Merlot, in addition to receiving a coveted Gold rating and a 95 point score for their 2014 Chardonnay at the Decanter World Wine Awards.
