With a beautiful view, this winery doesn't need any adornments. The wines are lovely, soft and classic. The tasting seemed a bit rushed, but they were busy.

Interesting building with an awesome front door! The views of Penticton and the lake are amazing from the tasting room. Staff was great and most welcoming. The restaurant on site, The Vanilla Pod, is well worth the visit. Incredible cuisine in such a beautiful setting.
