Beautiful store even at a temporary location.

Went to grand opening and enjoyed a taster of wine served by lovely Kayla and also sampled a pizza from Tyson from Winecrush Market.

Regular visitors to Penticton know this is one of the best wine selections in the valley. However the shop has been temporarily moved to trailers at the opposite of the parking while their old home is being incorporated into a new casino. However no expense has been spared in making this temporary locale a great shopping experience. Check it out... More

I stayed in Penticton for two days and I wanted to have some infos about the area. Stuff in really friendly and helpful. I wanted to go on a wine tasting tour, so they gave me some vouchers for free tasting. Only thing I would change, I would move it to the downtown.

The member of staff we spoke to was very friendly and helpful, keen to find out the type of things we would like to do. She was able to offer lots of recommendations and we had a lovely walk the following day following her suggestions.

went into the center wondering about a movie in the park we had heard about on the radio. The staff did not know about this and after an exhaustive seach which included calling the radio station we learned this movie was in Oliver! Very impressed how they went above and beyond to help! Thank you!!

Although it was moderately challenging to find this temporary location it was WELL WORTH IT! The woman in the centre was able to recommend great options for our requests to hike and bike around the area. We even received some discounts for rentals abd free wine samplings. Thanks for welcoming us to the area!

the visitor center is located in temporary looking trailers, the staff is friendly however too insistent on offering assistance. the wines are all BC wines, I am not high on BC wine, but since this was a VQA center decided to keep trying, I purchased a $35 bottle of Merlot & as usual with BC wines was very disappointed in...

the real building is under construction so a small temporary building has been set up the west side of the parking lot (on the other side of the curling club). the staff is very helpful and friendly and knowledgable about local attractions.
