Located just outside of Penticton’s downtown core at the gateway to the Naramata Bench, Upper Bench offers a unique opportunity to experience their two passions: wine and cheese. Award-winning winemaker Gavin Miller and the dedicated vineyard crew are committed to producing quality wines that showcase the varietal’s character from their seven-acre, seven varietal vineyard. They also hand-craft their own line of gluten-free artisan Brie, blue, and washed-rind cheeses using 100% Canadian pasteurized cow’s milk.
A visit to the picturesque patio at Upper Bench Winery & Creamery is the perfect addition to your itinerary during your stay in the beautiful Okanagan. Experience Gavin’s wines perfectly paired with his wife Shana’s highly acclaimed hand-crafted cheeses, all while enjoying the sunny Naramata Bench patio. Can’t stay long? Take one of their picnic boxes complete with Upper Bench wine and cheese wherever the day takes you. You may even get to meet the vineyard pups, so be sure to keep an eye out for the two border collies Bella and Emma. Upper Bench is also family friendly and accessible to all.
Bring the Upper Bench Winery & Creamery experience home with you with one of their four Curds & Corks Clubs. With four shipments of wine and/or cheese delivered to your door per year, you can choose to keep it for yourself or share the experience with your friends in the comfort of your own home.
