Bench 1775 Sauvignon Blanc 2018 $24.99
This Sauvignon Blanc was picked and fermented in 9 separate lots. The finished wine is a reflection of the cooler vintage and the range of ripeness from multiple picks. Bright citrus acidity, tart gooseberries, mown grass and ripe white peaches all combine to deliver a wine begging to be paired with BC oysters.

Bench 1775 Chill 2017 $18.99
A riot of fruit flavours, this juicy fruit wine is perfectly balanced with soft acidity for a very enjoyable and easy to drink sipper. Made from a secret blend of Pinot Gris, Semillon, Chardonnay and three aromatic varietals: Gewürztraminer, Riesling, and Viognier, this wine has a vibrant spectrum of Okanagan fruit flavours. Perfect alone or paired with fresh vegetable and seafood appetizers.
Bench 1775 Glow Rose 2017 $19.99
Great wine starts in the vineyard! A dry and complex rosé, we sourced the wine-making technique from the vineyards surrounding St. Tropez. Pair with a big sun hat and oversized celeb sunglasses.
44.5% Malbec, 22.5% Cabernet Franc, 21% Syrah, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Pinot Noir, 2% Chardonnay
Bench 1775 Syrah 2015 $29.99
Sourced from the east-facing block in Osoyoos, this Syrah has aromas of crushed dried herbs, violet, blueberry and cigar box. On the mouth, the tannins are rich and ripe, with blueberry and plum notes overlaid with dried tobacco, lean bacon and finishing with notes of white pepper. Enjoy this wine paired with grilled meats and roast vegetables.
Bench 1775 Cabernet Merlot 2014 $29.99
Deep rich red with hints of garnet, this wine exudes aromas of dried leaf, cassis, and licorice. On the palate dried herbal notes, plum, cassis, earth and licorice combine for an interesting complex play of flavours. Tannins are subtle, soft and balanced with the wine’s fruitiness. On the finish, herbal and anise notes contribute to lingering flavours.
