    What a true treasure, a thoughtfully curated collection of books to suit every taste, but especially for those looking g for something g special. I love browsing here and always find an unusual treasure. Not many places for families with teens but I’ve brought my kids, now in their 20’s here for years.

    When you go to a boutique winery, you expect to be served some nice wines. Well, when you go to Ruby Blues Winery you get this and a lot more. You will receive a tasting of some stellar varietals and I rank them right up there with any of the other Naramata / Penticton wineries. The grounds are so picturesque and the view looking out over the vineyards down towards Lake Okanagan is so memorable. The 60’s theme is perfectly captured by their use of decorated VW’s But the real treat you will get at RB’s Winery is your interaction with the people who work there. They are very experienced with their varietals, but they have lived here and know the history, the culture and vibe of the wine area. Whether you are served by Kerry, Sharon or Geraldine, you will thoroughly enjoy their knowledge, their passion and their wit in addition to a great tasting. We certainly did and will definitely return again to Ruby Blues with our family & friends.

    Short drive from the beach and a short (5 min) walk up. Beautiful views of both Okanagan and Skaha Lakes. How did they get the concrete of the Penticton sign to work???

    Our visit to Pentage Winery was first class from beginning to end.

    Just a short drive from Skaha Lake in South Penticton, Pentage Winery is beautifully situated overlooking the lake.

    The tasting room is welcoming, roomy and breezy on a warm day. Tasting fees are refunded with purchase. In addition to numerous wines, Pentage had juice, cheeses and chilled wines available for purchase. Shaded picnic tables (overlooking Skaha Lake) are a really nice touch.

    We were offered a variety of wines and sampled several. We very much enjoyed both their whites and reds. The entire tasting experience was greatly enhanced by a host who introduced each of the wines enthusiastically, providing background information and thoughtful insight.

    Highly recommended for locals and visitors to the South Okanagan.

    I've been a club member for more than a year and had the chance to taste some of the wines prior to visiting. I was looking forward to this tasting.

    We tasted all of their wines and it is on the top of the list of the wines we had in the valley. The reds are soooo good and will get better if aged.

    We had the chance to talk with the owner, John, for a good 10 minutes. We really appreciated this. Thanks for the chat, John.

    I will definitely come back to this winery when I'm back in this region.

    We LOVED our experience at Laughing Stock. Vera was amazing, she did a great presentation, and she was extremely entertaining. And the wine was some of my favorites I have ever tried. We would 100% recommend this winery.

    We were the only ones in the gallery, coming about an hour before closing. Enjoyed the main display that featured one artist, but found the other display of works by local highschool students even more interesting. Staff very friendly and approachable. I also want to give a pitch for their "First Friday" event which takes place the first Friday evening of each month, where local performers get to participate in an open mic to a receptive audience. Next one will be in September.

    Despite what you look, race feeling is just two meter in front of you. Tasty food is also available. If you wanna see the destruction race, wear older stuff. The dust will be horrible, but its worth!
