The First Annual Loving Hands Summer Gala at BENCH 1775 Winery

On August 8th, we will have host a charitable event, Frist Annual Loving Hands Summer Gala, which will gather donations for the Arusha Scholarship Fund. The community will come together to support the future of students in Arusha Tanzania, through a beautiful evening of entertainment, local talent showcases, delicious wine, and good company. 

All proceeds from this event will go to the Arusha Scholarship Fund, a project created by a group of passionate students who want children in Arusha, Tanzania to have the opportunities to education they deserve. Christian is the first student we are sponsoring, and with the help of the community we can make many more academic dreams a reality.

We hope to see you there, and if you have any further questions about ticket sales or wish to participate in anyway, feel free to contact ARUSHASCHOLARSHIPFUND@GMAIL.COM or  (250)486-6064.

The Great Performance from Kevin Kane & Bryan Potvin

July 16th, we were hosting free live music with Kevin Kane of the Grapes of Wrath and Brian Potvin of the Northern Pikes, visitors and fans enjoyed fabulous music, good wines and an amazing view! 

From the mid-80s to the early-90s, The Grapes Of Wrath and The Northern Pikes produced some of the catchiest and most heart-felt singles and videos to come out of Canada at that time. This pairing presented a special treat for fans of Canadian rock, as Bryan Potvin of The Northern Pikes and Kevin Kane of The Grapes Of Wrath teamed up to perform their solo material and favorites from both bands, both individually and as a duo. As well as old favourites from their respective back catalogs, Bryan drew heavily from his just-released debut solo album, Heartbledwhite, while Kevin performed several of the songs from last year's Grapes comeback, High Road, and slipped in a song or two from his next solo project.

Join Our Sweet Wine Club

Great news for dessert wine lovers! Now we are offering the Sweet Wine Club Choice which includes our portfolio icewines and late harvest wines. Our icewines are produced from grapes ripened in the summer sun and left on the vine to freeze naturally in the frigid Canadian winter. The frozen grapes are painstakingly harvested by hand at temperatures reaching - 8º C for an extended period. This concentrates the flavour and sugar yielding what many regard as the ultimate sweet wine. Pressed while still frozen, the grapes release only 5 - 10% of their normal juice leaving the water content behind in the form of frozen crystals. After a slow and skillful fermentation process the wines are ready for bottling. The intense varietal flavors and brilliant complexity of a finely balanced Icewine offers an unparalleled experience.
