The staff are very knowledgeable, one stop shop for Okanagan wine that is also winery priced. Lots of parking, even for big rig RVs. Good location too.

Excellent BC VQA wine selection. Great, helpful staff. There is nothing negative about this place - it is the perfect wine shop if you are looking for BC wine.

Best visitor centre we have visited in BC. Well stocked with lots of information about the immediate area as well as further away. On site wine store stocking local wines a bonus

What an amazing place. My goodness I can't get over the service and how accommodating the staff is. I have been there several times and have bought some many gifts and have been able to plan short local places to go by reading all the brochures they offer. Very clean and friendly.

Penticton has a beautiful Visitor center, but it also includes and Wine Center, you can buy wines from all over the Okanagan. It is set up very well with lots of selection. They even have cold wine and a nice shopping area. You will be impressed.

Ask to speak to Phil. He really knows the Okanagan and offered some great suggestions on things to do when you're in Penticton.

Wine shop is nice, and the service was excellent. The information side is a little cold, no greeting or eye contact. We walked around the shop for about 15 minutes and never had anyone say a word to us. The building is very nice. They have lots of information on the shelves.
