Found in the heart of wine country in beautiful British Columbia, Bench 1775 is located on the southern shore of Lake Okanagan. Named after the address of our winery, 1775 Naramata Road, along the beautiful Naramata Bench, Bench 1775 Winery is a celebration of land and place.
Wines from Bench 1775 are produced with the unique expression of fruit grown in the Okanagan Valley. Our fruit is grown in multiple vineyards spanning up and down the Okanagan Valley as well as a small vineyard in the Similkameen Valley.
The philosophy at Bench 1775 is to capture the full expression of the grapes grown in vibrantly healthy and balanced vineyards. We then manage the winemaking to allow for the natural expression of the grapes. We believe that great wines start in the vineyard, so all of our vineyard sites were analyzed in detail before being planted with clones and rootstocks best adapted to our soils and the climate of our sites.
Carefully managed vineyards and beautifully balanced wines could not be produced without an amazing team of dedicated and focused individuals all working together. The team is led by General Manager Henry Bian, & Winemaker Richard Kanazawa alongside our tireless vineyard workers, diligent cellar staff and enthusiastic sales and marketing group.
