Okanagan Wineries

Hi everyone,

I know this topic has been discussed extensively on this board, but to be honest I'm a bit overwhelmed by the information - there's obviously a LOT of great wineries here!

My wife and I are headed up for a short trip next weekend, hopefully the first of many :) Planning to head out of Vancouver very early Saturday morning, and then head back Sunday evening (I know, it's very little time for a long drive). We were thinking of exploring one region on Saturday afternoon, and a different region on Sunday afternoon - maybe 4-5 wineries per region...

Any suggestions on regions / wineries for our first trip? We want to start discovering some of the best wines in the region, and we don't really care about the views, how nice the winery looks, or the food... We'd be particularly interested in smaller batch wineries that are harder to get in Vancouver. If you're familiar with Ontario wines at all, our favorite wineries are Thirty Bench and Ravine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
