About Vine 49
Showing You the Heart of the Okanagan… The Local Way.
Welcome to Vine 49 Wine Tours, the most true-local touring operation in the Valley. Vine 49 is owned and operated by Matt Welsh, Trent Redschlag and Branden Redschlag. A few born and raised Kelownafornians with a passion for the Okanagan and its favorite industry…Wine. Upon garnering a passion for the wine and service industry, we became excited at the idea of creating our own Touring Operation. This year, we make that dream a reality and are looking forward to showing you around the best wineries in the Okanagan.
Being born and raised in Kelowna, we know this place… well. Ask us where to go for dinner and we’ll be able to recommend the best Kelowna restaurants and hangouts… like BNA Brewing or Central Kitchen & Bar. Our goal is to give you the True-Local experience and craft for you an unforgettable day in the beautiful Okanagan.
Life is stressful, wine touring shouldn’t be. Let us take away the stress of planning, driving, and choosing good wineries. Just show up, sip, hang out, and sip some more, we’ll get you home on time, we promise.
