“Excellent Service!!! Wine Country Visitor Centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Great to have this service when you are travelling. We purchased several bottles of wine at the Okanagan Wineries.... during our visit. The visitor store will provide packaging, pack it up and ship the wine to your home at a reasonable price! Shipper was FedEx, we live in the East of Canada so this was an excellent option available. FedEx delivered within two days of us returning home.
Visitor Centre is a must as you can purchase many of the wines from the wineries in the Okanagan there. Customer service was excellent, staff all knowledgeable and informative.

If you can't make it to all the small wieries you can still buy. Great idea. Makes you want to go to the wineries and see more.

This place has a great selection and friendly, informative staff. Some prices are better here that at the actual winery.

“Wonderful people, great selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We made many trips to the visitor centre - first to try a few BC wines, then at the start of a tour, and again to arrange packing and shipping of our over-exuberant purchasing. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and our extra boxes of wine arrived just after we did!
