Township 7 Winery

Named after the historic community of south Langley, this is Township 7’s second location. But, as they say, all the ‘magic’ happens here on the Naramata Bench!

Keeping things simple, Township 7 focuses on carefully handcrafted, small-lot wines with grapes sourced from their own vineyards and partner growers in the Okanagan Valley.

Located on a bend on McMillan Avenue, Township 7 is only a few minutes drive from downtown Penticton. Open earlier than some of the other local wineries, it’s a good choice for a first stop on a wine tour.

Alternatively, it’s also an ideal lunch destination. The winery has an expansive lawn patio next to the vineyard, which receives plenty of sun throughout the day. Guests are encouraged to sit and enjoy a picnic alongside a sampling flight or glass of wine.

Tastings and Wine Shop

Township 7 is currently offering outdoor tastings on their expansive lawn patio, located next to the wine shop. Reservations are recommended, but walk-in guests are welcomed when space permits.

The lawn patio features picnic tables, Adirondack chairs and a cosy couch area, all with umbrellas for shade. Seating is well spaced.

There are two sampling flights to choose from, each featuring a different selection of wines:

  • Provenance Tasting – $7, with four wines
  • Benchmark Tasting – $15, also with four wines

After arrival, guests choose their preferred sampling flight and wait for the flight to be delivered. The wine server introduces and describes the wines and then guests can enjoy the flight at their own pace.

Usually, tastings would also be held inside in the wine shop, situated on the side of the main production building. There is a small standing bar area, looking out onto the entrance and lawn area.

There is a small fridge inside the wine shop with cheese, meat and cold drinks. Guests can also bring their own picnic supplies. Wine can be purchased by the glass to accompany food.

Dog Friendly

Dogs are welcome to join their owners on Township 7 Winery’s lawn patio. Dog owners should, however, be careful to keep their pet close and on a leash at all times.

There is a dog living on the property as well as chickens, who roam free in the picnic area. If your dog is reactive with small animals, please consider leaving them at home or visiting another local winery.

The outdoor space is not entirely fenced, but the gaps are filled with vineyards. Most of the picnic tables have umbrellas for shade.

Child Friendly

Children are allowed to accompany adults for wine tasting. The grassy outdoor space is expansive, with plenty of room between tables and umbrellas for shade. The atmosphere is relaxed. There are no toys or play equipment for children. As mentioned above, there may be loose chickens roaming around the lawn area, as well as the winery’s resident dog.
