NARAMATA BENCH EXPERIENCE
Perched high above the shores of Lake Okanagan, the Naramata Bench region is one of the most picturesque wine growing regions in the world. With over 30 licensed wineries on a 15 kilometer stretch of road, our options are plentiful when it comes to visiting world-class vineyards.
Approximately an hour south of Kelowna, the drive down to “The Bench” offers stunning views of the lake and surrounding mountains as we travel past the west shore town of Peachland and through the charming vineyards and orchards region of Summerland. Typically, our day starts with a private facility tour and tasting at Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards at Greata Ranch, en route to the Bench from Kelowna.
Other stops may include: Laughing Stock Vineyards, La Frenz Winery, Deep Roots Winery, Joie Farm Winery, Nichol Vineyards, Poplar Grove Winery, Upper Bench Wine and Cheese, Bella Wines, and others on the Bench.
As with all of our tours, a picnic lunch consisting of fresh local produce, locally-cured charcuterie, BC artisan cheese, bread, crackers and spreads is included in the cost of the tour (May 1-October 15).
Our public, mixed group tours to Naramata depart from Kelowna with pick-ups in Kelowna and West Kelowna only.
As of October 15, 2017: Due to seasonal winery closures, this tour may not be available on certain dates.
