Upper Bench Winery & Creamery is situated in Penticton, British Columbia 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 believes great wine is made in the vineyard and farms sustainably, without the use of chemicals or pesticides. Upper Bench Winery & Creamery produces big bold reds and crisp dry whites. All of Upper Bench’s wines come from the mature vines on Upper Bench’s unique seven-acre vineyard and a select few other vineyards along the Naramata Bench. Cheesemaker Shana Miller continues to create her unique and highly sought-after hand-crafted artisan cheese in her on site, CFIA registered state-of-the-art Creamery. Shana now has seven delectable cheeses in her aging rooms: U&Brie, Gold, Gold French, Gold Italian, Okanagan Sun, Grey Baby and a stilton style blue named King Cole. Come and watch Shana hand-craft her cheese through the Creamery window, speak to Gavin about his award-winning wines and latest releases, and enjoy a wine flight perfectly paired with one of our cheese platters on our sunny Naramata Bench patio. Accessible to all Upper Bench is located just two minutes from downtown Penticton and open all year round (except Christmas Holidays).
