This beautiful centre has well trained staff who not only give you tourist information, but also manage a wine shop that features many local wines; are the centre for ordering tickets to local events and have seasonal information of all of Southern Okanagan. Access is a bit confusing but parking is always available, even RVs.

Have been coming to Penticton for years and never knew that you could pick-up wine from the local wineries in one stop! Great selection of local wines and gifts. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. So happy to have been able to pop in and top up our favorite wines once the tasting rooms have shut down for the season.

Started off my Okanagan Wine Festival at the Visitor Centre Penticton, an excellent place to start. Although riding shot gun with a Pal in the business there was plenty to see & try with many of Aarons suggestions. Follow this up for a ride up down the hill to try 11 different vineyards with OK Shuttle for a meager $60... More
