Our Regional Reflection Wine Experience on every Thursday offers an exclusive opportunity to taste our celebrated premium small lot wines and get to know Bench 1775, our family and philosophy.

Starting with the coveted 2013 and 2014 vintages, we will be tasting through to our not-yet-released 2016. This is an excellent opportunity to experience the climatic range of our exciting growing region in BC and to experience the evolving maturity of our Cabernet Franc cl.214 barrel aging program. This will also be a chance to taste a pre-release of our 2016 Cabernet Franc cl 214, the first vintage to have 24 months in barrel. Taste how this beloved wine has matured through the years. From veraison to cellared vertical, our cab franc will steal your heart, as it has ours.
Tastings start at promptly at 12:00 pm on every Thursday and are by appointment only.

Celebrate the harvest with us and make your plans to join Bench 1775 Winery and 30 wineries of the Naramata Bench Wineries Association for our renowned Annual Tailgate Party on September 14!
Taste, Tapas and Tunes are the order of the evening – taste the terroir through our winemakers’ renowned wines, and savour the creative tapas from Naramata chefs while enjoying live music in a fun friendly atmosphere.
This year’s theme is Roaring 20’s, the era when Naramata and the Naramata Heritage Inn & Spa were in their early days. Although you needed a password to get into speakeasies of the 20’s, you just need your ticket to get into this celebration of Naramata wines and culinary delights.
If you choose to dress Roaring 20’s there will be prizes for best costumes. (You don’t have to but it adds to the fun!) Flappers were the fashion in the 1920’s for women and Harry Houdini, Babe Ruth, Amelia Earhart, Don Juan, Charlie Chaplin, Betty Boop, Mickey Mouse, and John Dillinger were the talk of the era. Jazz was hot and the blues were cool, and the Charleston was the dance craze. So have some fun and dive into a costume creation if dress-up is your thing.
