Welcome to Pentâge Winery
Pentâge Winery is a boutique winery nestled on 23 acres overlooking Skaha Lake in Penticton, British Columbia. It is owned and operated by Paul Gardner & Julie Rennie. It all began in 1996, already a home winemaker, Paul’s dream was to one day open a winery in the Okanagan Valley.
It started out as a mini-weekend get-away to the Okanagan and the weekend turned into a real estate quest when we happened to stumble upon 4400 Lakeside Road. At that time the property was an abandoned orchard – “it had everything right wrong with it” said Paul. With his vision and immense passion…..the dream started to unfold. The land was contoured in 1996 and Spring of 1997 our Vista Ridge Vineyard was planted. Our first vintage was a small lot of 1999 Syrah and the rest is history…
We limit our annual production to approximately 5000 cases a year – this enables us the ability to create exceptional small lot releases and maintain our hands-on approach for quality control.
Our commitment to excellence begins in the vineyards. We believe the foundation of a great wine is most truly reflected by soil and climate – also known as the “terroir”. Our low-yield cultivation strategy produces the top-quality grapes essential to our premium, limited release, hand-crafted wines.
