Too bad. They have great wines but the fellow working the counter was pretty proud of himself. One of the joys of visiting Okanagan wineries is that the people are relaxed and welcoming. Not here.

This Gold Chardonnay is worth writing home about. So many great wines, but this was my favourite. We enjoyed our visit at this winery; the patio was peaceful and relaxed. For an elevated experience - check these guys out.
