Upper Bench Estate Winery
Situated in Penticton, at the gateway to the picturesque Naramata Bench, Upper Bench offers a unique experience to locals and visitors by offering pairings of their two passions: artisan wine and hand-crafted cheese. Winemaker Gavin Miller believes great wine is made in the vineyard and farms sustainably, with out the use of chemicals or pesticides. Upper Bench produces big bold reds and crisp dry whites. All of Upper Bench's wines come from the mature vines on Upper Bench's unique seven-acre vineyard and a select few other vineyards along the Naramata Bench. Cheesemaker Shana Miller continues to create her unique and highly sought-after hand crafted artisan cheeses in her on site, state of the art creamery. She now offers five delectable cheeses: U&Brie, Belle Marie, Okanagan Sun, Grey Baby and a stilton style blue named King Cole. Enjoy a bottle of wine on our sunny patio where our restaurant, The Oven, serves up authentic, Napoletana-style pizza. (Please note patio is 19+ only).
