Nichol Vineyard

Nichol’s great reputation for winemaking is purely based on quality, and being one of the oldest wineries on the Naramata Bench means they have plenty of experience to draw from. If you want to try some true Naramata reds, this is the place. Small yet bright tasting room with fabulous views and patio.

Daydreamer Wines

Daydreamer is a small family owned and operated winery, located almost at the very end of the Naramata Bench. The winery has a focus on sustainable winemaking, with the aim to conserve resources, minimise environmental impacts and keep vineyards healthy long-term.

Therapy Vineyards

Everyone needs a little therapy! Wine therapy, of course. And what better place to get it than this stunning property overlooking Okanagan Lake?

Serendipity Winery

Serendipity is something of a hidden gem. From the road, the winery looks unassuming. But true to this winery’s name, it’ll feel like a happy accident as you turn the corner to find one of the most beautiful properties on the Naramata Bench.

Kettle Valley Winery

Kettle Valley Winery is one of the oldest on the Bench, being issued only the third winery license for the area way back in 1992. Keeping things modest, the tasting room is located in the garage they used to make wine in during those early days.

Elephant Island Winery

Named after what was originally believed to be a ‘white elephant’ venture, this long-standing winery is a Naramata Bench icon. Family-owned Elephant Island Winery is also one of the most unique local wineries, producing both premium fruit and grape-based wine. The same hardworking team also runs Naramata Cider Co.

Celebrating the ‘art of good living,’ JoieFarm has one of the larger acreages on the Naramata Bench.

Deep Roots Winery
