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!

My boyfriend and I came to Penticton for the Canada Day long weekend and the visitor centre was our first stop when we arrived. We were looking for some information about dog-friendly vineyards because we had our puppy with us. The ladies we spoke to weren't sure but gave us a couple of suggestions. One turned out to be great... More

The staff in the Information Centre are very helpful and friendly. The wine store offers limited free wine tasting, but sometimes a wine grower is allowed to promote and sell his wines direct, on the premises, as was the case when we were there.

We were helped with maps for hiking trails and breweries. Our helper asked us what we wanted and was able to give us many types of printed material. She also circled spots on maps for us. Her directions helped us navigate the area, enjoy hiking on the KVR, find a cheese factory and an orchard winery.

We came to the visitor center as part of our wine tasting tour with GrapeEscapes (which was awesome!). The staff were very friendly and informative to a couple of wine tasting newbies! We gained a lot of useful information before heading off to the different wineries. The folks here are extremely knowledgeable and helpful and I would definitely suggest stopping... More
