Our Story

Play Estate Winery has been a passion project for the Pechet Family (Stagewest Hospitality brand). For years the group of business partners discussed opening a winery in the picturesque Okanagan region. The ideal location was found in the Skaha Hills Development overlooking Skaha Lake.

This was the moment Play Estate Winery was born!

Play Estate Winery features an iconic modern architectural construction which houses a wine shop, tasting bar and bistro with Penticton’s finest view. Beautifully accenting around the facility, Play features a 14 acre vineyard consisting of wine varietals such as Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat, and Viognier.

Stage West Hospitality and our Team are proud to present the Winery and look forward to showcasing our crafted varietals. We welcome all visitors to browse our website or join us on site to enjoy a true Okanagan experience!
