“Your one stop shop!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We are locals who visit our wine centre frequently! It is a great place to go if you do not have the time to go touring from winery to winery. They carry most of the local Okanagan wines. Aaron at the wine centre is our "guy" who helps us pick out wines he thinks we will like. He is very knowledgeable and great customer service! We usually have Aaron help us unless he is not working then, we have also been very happy with the other help we have received! They also have some great gift items, unique wine items and locally made cheese...YUM!!!

“great selection of local wines”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

A wonderful selection of local wines, local food products and very friendly staff. Appreciated the tasteful gift wrapping and noting which wines were award winners.

“Great wines”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

If you can't make it to a winery you can still buy some of their wine here at the same price. Very knowledgable staff and helpful, wine tastings too. Lots of other local products like vinegar and jams to purchase plus wine /picnic related merchandise. Well worth visiting.

“A Taste of the Okanangan under One Roof”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is a great facility if its your first time to Penticton and just as enjoyable if you've visited many times!
The staff is always pleasant. The choice of wines from the area that can be bought is excellent. Often there will be someone pouring a local wine for tasting - no charge. There are great wine gifts as well as the availability of some cheeses for purchase.
Attached to the wine store is the information centre where the staff provides all the information you need to enjoy the Penticton area. Start your vacation off right and head to the Penticton Visitors Centre!

“A place you cannot miss”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

On our way through Penticton we just happened to see the store from the main road which I think was very well located so we stopped and it was definately worth it. Staff are really informative and helpful. The idea to have a store adjacent to an info centre is really great as it gives people the opportunity to spend more time there. A great place to buy gifts as well as spoil yourself with the wide selection of wines. There was never a I don't know from any of the staff members which was great. The fact that we allowed to take our little dog inside was amazing as it was very hot and to leave him in the car was heart wrenching. It was a place well worth the stop.
