Wines worth walking a tightrope for? Well, that depends if you like skillfully made, award winning Naramata Bench classics. The winery’s name refers to the balancing act that is required when making wine.
Growing grapes and producing wine for other Okanagan Valley wineries for a number of years, Tightrope Winery is the culmination of a long held dream for the winemaker-owners Graham and Lyndsay.
The bright, modern and spacious tasting room is located just off the main drag of Naramata Bench and only a hop, skip and jump away from Three Mile Beach. There is a small and scenic patio out front, where some of the tastings are held.
