Naramata Bench Wineries

[South Okanagan Wine Tours]

The Naramata Bench is a place of great beauty and personality. Boutique wineries have staked their claims to this prime agricultural land which stretches down to Okanagan Lake, while reaching skyward up dramatic mountainsides and clay bluffs. Some are situated on the picturesque rolling hillsides while others are perched at the edge of cliffs that fall perilously towards Okanagan Lake. A remarkable setting, and perhaps the most scenic wine region in all of North America.

Oliver/Osoyoos Wineries

[South Okanagan Wine Tours]

As a region, and in comparison to neighbours in the United States and over in Europe, the Okanagan is young. Growers are experimenting, and varietal plantings can boom or bust. Fortunately, we’re seeing more of the former with a number of strong contenders; we’re establishing what can grow – and what grows well and can best reflect the region.
Principal varietals, planted according to acreage, are: Osoyoos – Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah
Oliver – Merlot, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon
With the diversity of growers in the region, there is as much diversity in plantings. From Pinot Noir to Tempranillo, Riesling to Viognier, the expression of terroir is in a period of exploration and discovery.
