    A very carefully planned wine & cheese tasting. The explanation of how all the different cheeses are made is interesting. I'm not a Chardonnay drinker. But I'd go for seconds on that one! I'm not a bl...  more »

    Met the owner, Gavin, at a neighboring winery and accepted his offer to dine at his winery. The Yard Wine was quite good but the cheeses and the pizza were excellent. Definitely worth the visit.  more »

    Gavin and Shana have created a delicious and breezy place to enjoy their lovely wine, great cheese and authentic pizza all while looking over vines and sitting under a misty summer canopy. Only a few minutes out of town too. We loved it and are going back.

    Winery & menu was absolutely gorgeous from what we could see but our group of 11 was turned down without a reservation. After calling twice and trying to make a reservation & being told that we could just come without any need for a reservation. 11 winos disappointed & would not attempt to come back or refer people to come back

    We love the wines and the cheese so much at this winery that we asked Shana to make us a wedding cake of cheese. It was absolutely delicious and really well received by our guests. We simply dressed the four level "cake" of brie with fresh flowers and served bread and crackers. Perfect for a winery wedding.

    Usually I keep my bad feedback for myself but this time i feel like sharing. We came Sunday August 31st with a group of 7 people. The winery is nice but service is not what you expect for a tasting. No explanation, the lady put a different wine in a glass with left over wine... Regardless the poor service the cheese was decent as well as the white wine (Riesling) but the red wine is taste less. We were in a purchasing mood but we left with a bitter taste. Instead we went to Hillside winery and where pleased.

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.
