Here's the thing. We think wine tours are a little too... proper. I mean really. Who wants to pretend to be all fancy for an afternoon when we both know that 90% of the time, that bottle of wine you bought is going to be enjoyed in a very NOT proper way. Let's just cut the fancy crap and have fun!

From Kelowna’s Next Drag Superstar drag competition, Embodiment, #2muffs1collr, to recent star on Call Me Mother, Ella has carved out her place as one of the most influential and stunning drag performers in Kelowna. A makeup artist by trade, Ella will eternally tease you with her beauty. But, watch out if you displease her — that tongue is quick and sharper than you think! She’s generally “as sweet as cherry pie” and she brings so much love and joy to the community. A true charmer, Ella Lamoureux is Kelowna’s Sweetheart.

Like our vines, our family roots in the Okanagan run deep. Our name has been inspired by our land. Situated on the SE slope of Mt. Boucherie, a 60 million year old dormant volcano, Volcanic Hills Winery takes it’s name from the rich volcanic soils surrounding it.
The single-vineyard wines embody the region’s rich soil and sun-soaked valleys. Cultivated through generations of ambition and love, the Kitsch family has captured the Okanagan in a glass.
Meadow Vista is a modern artisan farm winery driven by passionate eco-foodies. We love to produce wines people say taste like "nature in a glass", while doing our part to help the honey bees. We never want to imagine a world without honey bees.
The Vibrant Vine
Wine, Art and Sound - An experience you will never forget!
After accidentally winning ‘Best White Wine in the World’ at the World Beverage Competition in Geneva, Switzerland (ask us about it, it’s a great story!) their lives changed forever, and today we’re more vibrant than ever!
The View Winery is a family owned estate winery overlooking the city of Kelowna and Okanagan Lake. We have a strong commitment to quality and are proud of our award winning aromatic cool-climate whites and our fruit forward, spicy reds. In honour of our apple growing history we also craft Wards Cider.
They say it’s ‘the little things’ that matter most. We’re aiming to prove that saying to be true – by producing small-batch, quality spirits in our tiny distillery in the woods. Each step in the production process is carried out by hand, by our passionate and nimble team.
You're a curious one. FAQ.
Why are Drag Tours more expensive?
We know there are a lot of tour options in the Okanagan, so why choose us?
For your safety and fun, we hire a seperate driver so that our Drag Performer can enjoy the tour with you! This way, you can be sure that you have a safe ride while also allowing Ella to enjoy the tour with you and have a couple drinks along the way. This also gives Ella a chance to sit and get to you!
What's included in the tour price?

- Entertainment between wineries by your host, Ella Lamoureux
- Pick up at Friends of Dorothy and drop off in Kelowna
- Complimentary water
What's not included:

Will Ella be there the whole time?
You'll spend so much time with Ella, you'll be sick of her!
Kidding, but yes, Ella will be there for the entire experience. She'll welcome you at pick up, entertain during the drive and throughout the tastings, and then wave you goodbye at the end of the tour.
Is lunch included?
While there is a scheduled stop for lunch, the cost of the lunch itself is not included in the price of the tour.
Can my underage child/friend come along?
Sorry friends, Drag Tours are 19+ only! The combination of alcohol and Ella make this an adult-oriented experience.
Will we be sharing the bus with other people?
Yes you will be on the bus with other people - but what a way to make new friends!
We're a larger group, can we book a private tour?
Absolutely - we'd love to chat. Click the speech bubble in the bottom right corner to contact our team!
What if I want to go to a different winery?
Our winery tours are all pre-arranged (to some of our favourite places!) so unfortunately we aren't able to accomodate individual requests. If you book a private tour, we can absolutely discuss where you'd like to go.
Will you be doing tours throughout the Summer?
Heck ya! We plan to carry on throughout the Summer and into the Fall
