Best place to grab extra bottles of the wine you love when you discover you didn't pick up enough at the winery or to grab annual favourites without making the trek to the winery.!

Lots of helpful, informative staff. We are Okanagan winery regulars but we got a recommendation on a great winery that we hadn't heard of - Terravista Vineyards. Great selection of BC wines in one location.

We were told by friends that instead of driving up to the wineries which we know we already like, we could save time by just going to the Penticton & Wine Country Visitor Centre. Unfortunately, both wines we wanted to pick up they did not have in stock or did not carry (2009 Hillside Mosaic and La Frenz). The wine... More

I'm glad to have read some reviews about the visitor center and made this the first stop on our wine tour. The gentleman we talked to gave us good advice on where to stop and what to do. It made our trip a better experience.

Found about this place through Tripadvisor. With all the rave reviews on here we ditched the kids with the grandparents to check it out today. Wish we visited this place at the beginning of our trip rather than the end as the girl at the info centre was very helpful with giving us fun stuff for the kids and options... More
