Your hosts, Les and Nancy were born in Canada. They had the unique opportunity to live and work overseas for many years in Asia and Africa. Les retired as an aircraft maintenance engineer in 1990. Nancy continues working as an education consultant in under-developed countries to improve access and quality of basic education during the winter months. They are avid travelers and enjoy meeting people from around the world.
After spending 18 years overseas, we decided to settle in the Okanagan Valley because of its breath-taking scenery, abundance of sunshine, recreational activities, and our love of 'wine'. Penticton, which means 'a place to stay forever' is truly a place to retire and hone our golf and wine-making skills.
Our 3.2 acre property is peaceful and private with panoramic views of the lake and mountains from every corner of the property. The vineyard is a great place to stroll or try your hand at suckering or thinning grapes. The suite and its patio offer comfortable places to relax and watch the amazing sunsets while sipping your favorite wine.
The Naramata Bench is an ideal location for guests who want to combine wine-tasting with outdoor activities such as swimming, biking/walking the KVR/Canada trail, fishing and golf. The views and colors of the lake, mountains, and vineyards are spectacular.
