Fall is a great time to visit the Okanagan and the BC VQA Information Centre and Wine Shop, on the corner of Highway 97 and Eckhardt Avenue in Penticton.

Plan to visit the BC VQA Wine Shop during Okanagan Fall Wine Festival, October 3-13. This is the season red wines are released; stop by any day of the week to sample one of the new releases. Complimentary tastings are available daily – watch for special guest wineries often pouring their wines in store.

With over 700 VQA wines, all at winery price, the selection at the BC VQA Wine Shop is second to none. Many are also chilled!
Complement your wines with local artisan cheeses or gourmet treats. Peruse the giftware and unique items perfect for gift giving for any occasion. Custom gift baskets are available for any budget and a wonderful way to say Thank You or Congratulations! or to celebrate any special holiday or event.

Traveling with your wines? Pick up a specially designed shipping box; the staff can pack your wines so they are ready to check on your next flight. Don’t miss the opportunity to take great BC wines with you when you travel.

At the BC VQA Information and Wine Shop, friendly, fun and knowledgeable staff is always readily available to assist you with pairings for your next dinner, or an informal barbecue. Visit them today!

Plan to attend the annual Open House on November 15th. Watch for details on Facebook or the website www.pentictonwineinfo.com.
