Great place to pick up local wines from the south Okanagan. The staff is vey knowledgeable. It is located close to beaches and has a large selection of wines from most of the estate wineries from keremeos to oliver. If you can't make it to the wineries then you should make it here.

There's every wine here from the valley. They taste 2 wines daily and they are very knowledgeable about every wine and are able to suggest what you might like. They suggested wine tours and showed us on maps where to go. You can even do a cycling tour.. And of course are able to buy wines and other knick knacks... More

Knowledgable staff and great selection of wines. The staff are more than willing to help provide you with information on the local attractions and vineyards which helps when you wish to do a self-guided tour of the area.

The staff here really know their stuff. We stopped in to get directions & info for the Elvis Festival, we were given perfect directions & tips on where to park. They also gave us good recommendations on where to eat & other places to check out while we were in town.

We happened by the Visitor Centre as we were leaving Penticton, and are glad we did. Loads of information, a good selection of wines and wine related products and all beautifully displayed. Great stop for tourists with limited time.

So we always stop at the wine store at the Visitor's Centre to pick up wine for our stay in Penticton and to take home. The folks at the wine shop are very well versed on the products that they sell and can quickly offer you enough choices to choose from. They have an excellent selection from a broad range... More

A fantastic selection of local wine at very reasonable prices. There is some other great giftware too. Lots of information on the area, a great place to start your visit to wine country.
