Bench 1775 is a multiple award winning winery with quite a view of the Okanagan Valley. Bench 1775's name is a tribute to the splendour of its location, 1775 Naramata Road, Penticton BC on the spectacular Naramata Bench. Bench 1775 sits on 30 lakefront acres boasting panoramic views and 1000 feet of beach frontage! The team, led by Viticulturist/Winemaker Val Tait, is supported by Alain Sutre, our wine consultant extraordinaire from Bordeaux France. Our tireless vineyard workers, our diligent cellar staff and our enthusiastic sales and marketing group round out our team. The company's mission is to grow exceptional grapes and produce great wines that inspire the senses -- at great prices.
The process begins in the vineyards, where they allow the carefully tended fruit to ripen fully before harvesting when the flavours have reached their peak, and tannins are at their softest. The fruit is then hand picked and hand sorted before crushing to eliminate any fruit that fails to meet Bench 1775's high standards. Bench 1775 wines are made with fruit from its premier Naramata Bench vineyards as well as from other meticulously selected growers in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys. Each vineyard sites is chosen because of its unique micro-climate, soil type and sun exposure.
