Start your day by hopping on the Top Cat Tours shuttle departing from the Ramada Penticton Hotel and Suites at 9:15 am or the Penticton Lakeside Resort at 9:30 am.
A short ride later you will arrive at Pentâge Winery. Enjoy the stunning views overlooking Skaha Lake while tasting their wines and exploring their natural rock cellar and barrel room. Depending on the time of year, you may even experience a rare barrel tasting!

About an hour later, you will take a short 20 minute ride to Upper Bench Winery & Creamery, where they hand-craft both wine and cheese on site. Here you will enjoy a perfectly paired tasting of both their wine and their cheese and learn about the processes involved in making these two products.
