Northern Bench Wine Tour

Northern Bench Wine Tour with Stop for Lunch
Duration: 6.5 hours
Tour Price: $124.00 per person + GST (Guests purchase own lunch)

A tour of the Okanagan Valley’s cooler climate wineries located in Lake Country.

At the family owned and operated Ancient Hill Winery the wines are made entirely from grapes grown in their own vineyard and processed on-site in their European style winery.  Guests always enjoy Intrigue Wines, where they wonder what is it about wine that captivates us, keeps us coming back for more and still interests us after all these years? Visit The Chase Wines, the newest winery in Lake Country. Their aromatic wines include a Rose, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay carefully crafted by the wine maker.  Savour seasonally inspired culinary creations at the The Chase Wines Garden Bistro. We also stop at the delightful family owned Arrowleaf Cellars to taste their clean, crisp, cool climate whites and barrel aged reds and learn how the Okanagan “terroir” creates superb vintages.  The winery is named after the beautiful Arrowleaf Balsamroot wildflower which adorns Okanagan hillsides in the spring.

Visiting any of these four wineries during our afternoon tour is always a delightful wine touring experience. At the family owned and operated Ancient Hill Winery the wines are made entirely from grapes grown in their own vineyard and processed on-site in their European style winery. We also stop at the delightful family owned Arrowleaf Cellars to taste their clean, crisp, cool climate whites and barrel aged reds and learn how the Okanagan “terroir” creates superb vintages.  The winery is named after the beautiful Arrowleaf Balsamroot wildflower which adorns Okanagan hillsides in the spring. Visit the Mediterranean style winery, Ex Nihilo Vineyards, where the owners have succeeded in fulfilling their dream on a steep 10-acre property.  The name, Ex Nihilo, means “out of nothing”, and the owners truly have a story to tell about how the soil, climate and steep slopes of this beautiful property has created their gold awarded wines. Guests always enjoy  Gray Monk Estate Winery, the oldest family owned and operated winery in B.C. and winner of the “Generations Award for the Family Winery of Distinction” for North America.  After tasting their flavourful wines take time to shop in the new and spectacular wine boutique which overlooks Okanagan Lake and the rugged landscape of the Okanagan Valley.
