  • Snuggled in in a corner on the way to Naramata is a winery named after Sam Worthington’s character in Clash of the Titans. Generally, those visiting wineries in the—what…yes, I know Perseus was the Greek hero who saved Andromeda after beheading the Gorgon Medusa, though technically, the winery is named after the Perseus constellation, which is itself named after Sam Worthington’s character in Clash of the Titans. Credit does go to the owners willing to extol the inspiration for the name to those curious. The issue with the Penticton/Naramata region is the overabundance of options. You have amazing wineries that shut down at 5 pm at Naramata, encouraging tourists to push to the far end and work their way back to Penticton. I know that because we did it twice. Our initial journey last August was part of a much larger wine journey where my girlfriend and I visited sixty wineries over a week, bringing back 120 bottles. During our stay in Penticton, we reached all the way to Therapy before returning, hitting up wineries on the way back, running out of time by the time we made it to D’Angelo. Thankfully, we had a plan, and after checking out from our hotel the next day, we hit up the closer wineries before continuing onto Kelowna. Perseus marked the first location from this day. As such we were its first customers, hoarding all the host’s attention. Along with D’Angelo, Perseus is blessed with a passionate winemaker obviously proud of what he created. I love being sold, and this guy succeeded. Truth be told, Perseus is not as intimate as D’Angelo, and its corporate roots do shine through. The winery itself doesn’t look like much from outside, and you might be forgiven for missing it on your drive to Naramata. Inside is a spacious tasting room with a color scheme matching the bottles and the winery’s name. There’s even a telescope and dining tables, though the latter I was unsure of. The winery claims to have a kitchen though there’s no information for what they offer. I initially considered it was an interior picnic area, though that would be bizarre if not even a little ill-advised. One aspect I was sure of was the quality of its wine. Not only did we pick up a 2014 Syrah but also one of the more expensive Cabernet Sauvignon select lots, offered in one of the most breathtaking bottles acquired on our trip. Both remain unopened by this writing (and will remain so until aged the proper time). It could be said Perseus is a hidden gem, but one stashed in a stack of gems. To impart a metaphor most should notice, Perseus is like the Arkenstone from The Hobbit, shining in a sea of gold.
  • Very nice penticton winery, first one up the road, got the Riesling- gewurztraminer blend, very interesting and prices are reasonable
  • We stopped in because of the label. We probably shouldn't choose wine by the label, but it's not the first time. So far we've made some great finds. We enjoyed the wines and ended up buying two bottles (Chardonnay and Eclipse). The winery has a nice view and the staff was great. Would recommend a visit.
  • I used to drive by this place all the time and finally stopped in as I'd been hearing lots of good things about their wines. And I'm really glad I did! The tasting room is cozy with a great view; feels very comfortable and yet professional. The service I received there was top-notch; friendly and informative. Had a great conversation about wine and shared lots of laughs along the way. Oh, and the wines are seriously good too! They offer a wide range from $16 for $48 and they're all worth every cent.
  • Great wines and amazing hospitality from Craig. Make sure to give yourself enough time to have the presentation on the Oakanagon Valley and try out their wines. Will definitely be back in the future.

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.
