What is okanagan wine collective? 


It all started when…

founder, Murissa Shalapata, created www.TheWanderfullTraveler.com. After 8 years of writing and photographing her travels she decided to focus more on her adopted home here in the Okanagan wine valley.

Her readers wanted to know more about the Okanagan and where they could taste the best bubbly, red wine and al fresco dinners. She thought it would be fun to be able to take those readers on a journey through the Okanagan herself which brought about the idea for the customized and popular itineraries provided in our shop.

The itineraries aren’t pompous, but they feel as thought they were written by a friend revealing hidden gems. We hope you enjoy and please share your trip on social media using #okanaganwinecollective.

We love living in the Okanagan for all its foodie events, wineries, breweries and the supernatural landscape they are set within.

But Okanagan Wine Collective is more than just this website. On our Instagram you can find highlights featuring local wine makers, special stewards, foodies and other members of the community that make the Okanagan so unique.
