Bench 1775 brings together some of the best minds in BC and France, from viticulturalist Valeria Tait, to Bordeaux’s flying wine consultant Alain Sutre. Close attention was paid to the unique soils and climate of the Okanagan Valley, choosing only those clones and rootstocks that would provide the most promising growth. This focus and hardwork has paid off, with an exciting range of diverse whites, reds, icewines, and even late harvests. Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Syrah, Cabernet Franc Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and a much-admired Rosé are some of the notable wines from Bench 1775. An expert staff with astute insights and instincts continues to yield positive results for Bench 1775 and wine lovers alike.
