Tastings are available daily, starting at 11am. Our shop remains open daily, 10am-6pm, for wine and cheese purchases.

We truly want you to have a memorable experience with us here at Upper Bench. The best way for that to happen is if we know you are coming so we can staff accordingly. As such, reservations are not yet required but very highly recommended. Of course, we understand those who wish to pop in for a tasting, which we will do our utmost best to accommodate, but please be aware there may be a wait, or availability may be limited to standing room only.

Please call the winery at 250-770-1733 or email clubs@upperbench.ca to book. Please note a credit card will be required to finalize all bookings.

For same day reservations, please call the winery during regular shop hours (we are open daily, 10am-6pm) at 250-770-1733.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

We require a minimum of 24 hours notice for a cancellation. Any cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will not have their tasting fees refunded.

Please note that our patio is 19+ only, but we are able to accommodate minors for stand-up tastings.

Due to the intimate size of our space we cannot accommodate any groups larger than 6 people, nor do we accommodate any stagette/party tours.

Masks are now optional while in the wine shop and during tastings. We ask that you please respect the individual preferences of other guests and staff members.
