Great conversation with the owner, she took the time to describe her wine and how they came to be. Beautiful wine and We were told not to miss this from the locals and I highly recommend going.

This was a first-time visit to this winery 'and' particular area of Osoyoos. It was a pretty and scenic drive from town, and for us, it ended at the winery, for a look-see, and potential tastings/purchases of some of their wine offerings.

We all enjoyed seeing the property, and found it very pretty. But once inside the wine shop, I found the wines available not to be quite what I was seeking at this point in our stay - a little too many winery tourings & tastings already done in the area (Osoyoos/Oliver).

What I tasted: Amber (2011) - a blend of whites, and the Viognier (2012) - an award-winner - it was very fine!!

There are so many fine wineries -- sure wish I could have purchased at all -- and if that had been possible, some of Young & Wyse's Amber and Voignier would certainly have come home with us!! Next trip to the area, we'll try to visit earlier in our stay!!

After tasting their Cabernet Sauvignon served at the Villa Rosa in Penticton, we decided to check out the winery ourselves as we explored the area. Located right next to the Canadian/American border this winery hosts a nice little gift shop and an enjoyable taste of four of their wines.
The owner was very personable, provided some interesting history and noting our interest in scenery, suggested visiting a particular winery to be found on our way back to Penticton.
Try tasting the wines along with the Black Sheep wine and be prepared for a pleasant surprise.
Shipping costs are extremely reasonable.

We really enjoyed this little spot. Our dog was invited inside to play with the owners' dog, which for us always makes a difference so we don't have to worry about leaving her in the car or finding a spot to tie her to a tree or bench if it is hot out. She had a great time playing with the owners' dog. The wine was also delicious and the owner was very friendly. She gave us advice about wines, local parks, and just about anything else we wanted to know! The wines were very reasonably priced, and I would definitely recommend this spot.

A very personable owner talked 3 of us through her wines, offering us a taste of 4 of them, no pressure to buy, though we bought the Pinos Gris and no tasting charge.Well done Young and Wyse, it even made it back to New Zealand, along with your t.shirt.
