The Okanagan Valley in British Columbia has been named #1 Wine Destination in the World by Huffington Post.
Yet in Naramata, there is a lot more to do than just drink good wines. Here you will be one with nature and refresh your soul. A stay at the Bench d’Or lets you have a break from the big city, and allows you to disconnect and recharge and make unforgettable experiences with family and friends.
There’s always something happening in and around the Naramata Bench. From wine events to biking, we’re happy to help plan activities for your stay.
If you are coming here for the wine, there is much to see and do. Okanagan wines are truly exceptional – the grape varietals include Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Marechal Foch, Malbec as well as Chardonnay, Riesling, and Pinot Gris. Naramata is an excellent place to start a tasting tour of the dozens wineries in the region. And by the way, Naramata wineries make some great bubbly Méthode Champagnoise (aka Champagne). We are happy to share our favorites with you, all of which are small family estates!
For the cycling enthusiast, Bench d’Or sits directly across the road from some of the best mountain biking in BC. We have available Cannondale e-bikes for a winery bike tour or a trip to Penticton Saturday market along the KVR bike path. Contact us for information. No reservation is necessary.
To cool off in the clear waters of Okanagan Lake, nearby Naramata village has public beach access and paddle board rentals.
