  • We stopped in to LaFrenz on the Naramata Bench. Very busy cellar door. We waited only a minute to be seated. We like more reds than white. We loved the 2015 Malbec and Merlot. The Liqueur Muscat is a ...  more »

  • The wine tour we booked had doubled up on some wineries so our guide checked with La Frenz to see if we could stop there. Shelley made it happen and Chris was the best at making sure we had a great ex...  more »

  • We did the winery tour and this was the best place far away from the others winery's that we visited also I really want to mention if you have the opportunity to come here and be attend for Chris well you experience it's going to be amazing. For sure you will buy wine here if you don't have experience it's wine they will guide you. Chris rocks.
  • The only disappointing thing about this winery is how popular is getting! 😜 The tasting room is often packed, but for good reason. Consistently good wines.
  • We were not impressed by the service or by the wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon was terrible. The other winds were presented poorly and did not taste as good as comparable wines on the bench. Each other place we went we got free tasting even if we didn't buy. Lafrenz was demanding that we pay the five dollar fee per person even though we didn't taste the wines. Good luck to a poor winery.
  • Beautiful scenery! Website said they were open for dinner and allowed us to make a reservation but when we arrived, the owners watched us sit down and waited 10-15 mins to tell us they were closed. It was pretty disappointing.
  • They always say don't meet your heros - follow this unless your hero is La Frenz. They lived up to their rep and provided me with the best tasting I have ever done. The proof is in the pudding (wine) and it's easy to support these great folks.

Where to stay in Penticton

Penticton's position between two lakes means that you're likely to enjoy waterfront views no matter where you stay. The town center, on the southern shore of Okanagan Lake, represents the most popular place to stay, with a host of motels and resorts offering views over the water. Head south down Skaha Lake Road--itself littered with accommodations--and you'll find quieter inns and motels offering vistas over the smaller but equally scenic Skaha Lake. Head just out of town along the east shore of Okanagan Lake and you can stay in a bed and breakfast or guesthouse among the region's wineries.
