Go here for info on the region / what to do / where to go, and to buy cheap local wine. You probably won't spend more than 15 or 20 minutes here.

Thank you for your note - I know, it's not quite accurate that we are described as an "attraction" when really we are the gateway to all the fabulous, fun activities you are able to enjoy in Penticton & Wine Country! Cheers, Marsha More

Stop here for maps of the vineyard regions surrounding Penticton. We got maps for several areas and the friendly staff member helped us plan our day trip. With her help we were able to fit in 8 wonderful vineyards. Go here to get help finding quality vineyards. They take the time to help you find what you're looking for!
