About us

We’re young, fun and wine savvy!

The story goes…

Two Ontario girls met in the Okanagan while working together at Sandhill Wines. After 5 years of friendship and a variety of wine industry jobs between the two of us…

We have decided to combine our experience and passion to form Red Lips and Wine Sips.

As certified Sommeliers with over 15 years of combined experience in the Canadian wine industry, we are excited to be offering a variety of wine-related services to the Okanagan community. From in-home tasting parties, exclusive tasting events and cellar building, to staff wine education and training we are here to share our love of wine.

We want to be Your Partners in Wine!

Whether you are hosting a private event, birthday party, wedding shower or looking to build an impressive cellar or wine list we are your gals!

The secret to our success?
