We are located on the beautiful Naramata Bench in the heart of the Okanangan Valley. At LA FRENZ, we believe the quality in the bottle begins in the vineyard. Cutting edge and meticulous vineyard practices are used in combination with varieties tailored to the unique soils and micro climates of our vineyard sites to produce the vibrant and intense grape characters found only in the Okanagan Valley. The potential of the resulting fruit, using experience and careful stewardship throughout the vinification process, is maintained and enhanced to create exceptional wines that truly reflect the grape variety and vineyard site. We welcome you to our unique wine shop overlooking Lake Okanagan. This spectacular view was featured on the $100 banknote from 1954 to 1975. From April through October, we are open daily, 10am to 5pm for tastings and purchases. Join us on our patio for a seated tasting experience or sample at the tasting bar. Seating is limited so reservations are encouraged. We do require advance reservations for groups of 8 or more.

We stopped in to LaFrenz on the Naramata Bench. Very busy cellar door. We waited only a minute to be seated. We like more reds than white. We loved the 2015 Malbec and Merlot. The Liqueur Muscat is a must. Great service and lovely people.

Chris helped us with the wine tasting and he was brilliant: very knowledgeable and engaging. We don't generally like Chardonnay but this we have to admit we did. The Merlot was excellent and their reserve wines at $45 a bottle are a bargain.
