Why We're Drinking It:

Located just outside of Penticton’s downtown core at the gateway to the Naramata Bench, Upper Bench offers a unique opportunity to experience our two passions: wine and cheese. Award-winning winemaker, Gavin Miller and our dedicated vineyard crew are committed to producing quality wines that showcase the varietal’s character from our seven-acre, seven varietal vineyard. We also hand-craft our own line of gluten-free, artisan Brie, blue, and washed-rind cheeses using 100% Canadian pasteurized cow’s milk.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: honeysuckle, toffee, pistachio, vanilla
Palate: peach, fresh lemon, hazelnut

The Story to Know:

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 now has ten wines in Upper Bench’s wine flight: a smooth
Cabernet Sauvignon and a big rich Merlot, a bold Zweigelt, a gorgeous Pinot Noir, a well
balanced Chardonnay, a dry Rosé, a crisp Pinot Gris, an off-dry Riesling, a tropical Pinot
Blanc and Upper Bench’s first blend Upper Bench Red. All of Upper Bench’s wines come
from the mature vines on Upper Bench’s unique seven-acre, seven varietal naturally farmed
and hand-tended vineyard and a select few other vineyards on the Naramata Bench.

Upper Bench produces award winning big bold reds and crisp, dry whites that reflect the vintage and soil from the vineyards where they are grown.

Upper Bench brings passion from the vineyard to your glass!
