My Wine Canada Wine Club Feature: Bench 1775 Winery

With the cold weather fast approaching, we could all use an extra boost to keep our spirits high. Wine can make the perfect gift as we say goodbye to the warm weather and welcome the cool fall nights. This month our featured winery is the Okanagan Valley's Bench 1775 Winery. Sign up for our Wine Club today to have 2-3 handpicked wines with detailed tasting notes and pairing recommendations delivered right to your front door every month.

Found in the heart of the Okanagan Valley wine region of British Columbia, Bench 1775 is located on the southern shore of Lake Okanagan.  Their wines are expertly crafted from grapes grown in their three vineyards: Oxbow Vineyard, on the original Golden Mile in Osyoyoos, South Okanagan, and the Paradise Ranch and Soaring Eagle Vineyards in Central Okanagan. Named one of the Top 8 Wineries in Canada at this year's National Wine Awards, Bench 1775's growing portfolio is nothing short of stellar.

We’ve tasted Bench 1775's wines, and we’re excited for our wine club members to receive a selection of these incredible vintages that are included in November's Wine Club packages! Here are some of our top picks.
