Therapy Vineyards & Guesthouse GM Judi Skinner had a fabulous year celebrating the Naramata winery’s 10th anniversary. She’s thrilled with the increase in visitors and wine sales, and hearing rave reviews about Therapy’s new upgrades.  Their fully paved parking lot expansion provides plenty of room to accommodate wine lovers tasting at “The Farmacy” or relaxing at their new, family-friendly patio.

Visitors always enjoy winemaker Steve Latchford’s delicious portfolio. Fans effervescently gush about his newest 2014 Artist Series Old Vines Chardonnay and Fizziotherapy Blanc. A Gold-medallist at the 2015 National Wine Awards of Canada, Fizziotherapy Blanc is a Chardonnay/Orange Muscat-based frizzante available by-the-glass ($5.00), bottle or 20L key keg.

Therapy’s breezy vineyard and lake view patio features a casual, Mediterranean bistro-look with pretty red umbrellas, comfortable seating and wraparound bar.

Appetites of all-ages are fully satisfied by well priced freshly made wood fired oven pizza and gourmet grilled cheese from Lil’s Kitchen now on site.

“What a season!” says Judi. “Our Summer Breeze Music Series on the patio was very successful: look forward to more live music next year.  Lil’s has done really well, the Guesthouse has been at capacity, and our sales have grown so much, we have to ramp up production!” Judi expects a big increase this fall, helping satisfy demand on top-sellers and bringing their greatly-missed Syrah and “Super Ego” back.

Visiting the Okanagan between September and April 2016? Therapy’s Guesthouse accommodates up to 22 people in eight separate rooms and suites. Reserve guestrooms individually or combine with the gourmet kitchen, dining area for 20+, and spacious living room. Check out their great shoulder and off-season rates!

Judi reminds everyone that Therapy is open YEAR ROUND!
