Bench 1775

About The Winery

Bench 1775 is a winery with quite the view of the Okanagan Valley! There's something special about life on the Bench. Bench 1775's name is a tribute to the splendour of its location, 1775 Naramata Road, on the spectacularly beautiful Naramata Bench. Bench 1775 Winery sits on 30 lakefront acres boasting panoramic views and 1000 feet of beach frontage. Co-owners Jim Stewart and Peter Wille fell in love with the Bench 1775 property on first sight and instantly knew it was the perfect site to hone and share their passions for viticulture and winemaking. Paradise Ranch Wines Corp., which has historically produced only ice wines and late harvest wines under its Paradise Ranch and Whistler brands, is thrilled to launch its new flagship brand BENCH 1775 and is dedicated to attaining new benchmarks for winemaking in British Columbia. 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. 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 microclimate, soil type and sun exposure. Carefully tended fruit is allowed to ripen fully with the goal of harvesting when the flavours have reached their peak and the tannins are at their softest. The fruit is hand picked and hand sorted before crushing to eliminate any fruit that fails to meet Bench 1775's high standards.
