We just happened upon this winery in Naramata and heaped the best meal at their Vanilla Pod Bistro overlooking Lake Okanagan. Fantastic food, service and view. We would highly recommend going and the Pinot Gris was excellent. I had pasta of the day which was culinary genius with the balsamic reduction and basil cream sauce. Definitely worth stopping in. Enjoy!

The main building is ultra modern/industrial and looks our over a fabulous view. They think an awful lot of themselves! Their wines were more expensive than most others and no better tasting and the restaurant prices ridiculous! Really not impressed.

We met a friend at the restaurant at his suggestion. We had a window seat with a spectacular view. The restaurant is quite small considering the size of the tasting room. what a great find. Not cheap definitely a special dinner night. Highlight was the wines that we ordered. All of our meals deserts were excellent from what I recall... More

We stopped at Poplar Grove for a wine tasting and after seeing the view couldn't pass up having their cheese plate and a drink on the patio. The staff were courteous and friendly, the food was excellent and the view breathtaking. We then did our wine tasting and bought a few bottles on the way out. Definitely recommend stopping here.

We went for dinner at the Vanilla Pod, shared with the Poplar Grove winery. Incredible setting - seriously breathtaking. Great food, excellent service. It was my favourite winery in Penticton

Evening event so we watched the sunset over the lake while sipping my favorite Poplar Grove Merlot. The onsite Vanilla Pod restaurant supplied the appetizers which were so tasty and rich, even though just small bites. Next time I want to go back & enjoy a full meal on the patio!

The vineyard is simply beautiful with its modern and earthy architecture while facing the view of the water. We never tried the food but the restaurant looked elegant and the menu looked delicious. The wine we tried were great and their white wine stood out the most.

We renewed our (39 years)vows.The views were amazing. Restaurant superb, atmosphere fantastic. The staff were attentive but not overpowering. A five star venue able to offer the little things that turn a memorable date into a memorable occasion that will stay forever in the memory. Did i mention the wines were exquisite.

More hype than substance at this winery. Beautiful location but the staff were not friendly nor were they helpful. The stench of arrogance wafted through this wine tasting room. I don't know why because the wine was just adequate.
