The Naramata Bench Wineries Association is a group of twenty-four award-winning wineries nestled along a fourteen kilometre winding country road overlooking Okanagan Lake.

Located near Penticton in the Southern Okanagan, the wineries are situated above sweeping sand cliffs that rise from Okanagan Lake, with vineyards that gently slope up to the mountains behind, hence the name “The Naramata Bench.”
A hundred years ago this was a major fruit growing area and over the years it has become home to world class viticulturists growing the grapes that are the basis for the renown of Naramata Bench wines. It has also become home to artisans, restaurants, and B&B accommodations.





We have created a high-end 35,000 case, small lot custom winemaking facility with the resources and expertise to take product from field to market – including branding, marketing, communications and distribution and sales. We welcome clients, be they vineyard owners or other wineries who wish to establish their own wine brand or to use our equipment to make an exclusive new wine.

The 7,750 square foot Okanagan Crush Pad Winery is located on a 10-acre property in Summerland, BC, known as Switchback Vineyard. The winery is located at the north-west corner of the property and is built partially underground. The facility is only open to the public seasonally, and is designed as a co-working space for winemakers to work side by side to share ideas and to collaborate


Poplar Grove Winery is located on the slopes of the naramata Bench, a premier wine growing area just outside Penticton , British Columbia. One of the original 5 wineries on the Naramata Bench., Poplar Grove was founded in 1993 when Ian Sutherland dedicated 2.5 acres of land to the planting of Cabernet Franc and Merlot Grapes.

The first Vintage was released in the fall of 1995, with Poplar Grove Cabernet Franc receiving top honours at the Okanagan Wine Festival. Over the past 19 years, Poplar Grove's vision has remained the same; to make world-class wines that reflect the spirit of the Okanagan Valley terroir.
Each year, the wine making team handcrafts the Poplar Grove wines with care, being true to their mandate to guide the winemaking process with little or no interruption of the natural process.

REAL
As in, eat real food. The kind that comes from farmers. Locally sourced. No ingredients you can’t pronounce.
RESPECT
Live and work in a sustainable way. Treat customers and co-workers like family and friends (some of them are).
FLAVOUR
Okay, that one’s a stretch. But Jim is all about flavours. Unexpected, sublime, wonderful flavours. Like the melt-in-your-mouth Kobe beef in the Ultimate Kobe Classic. Holy $#!% is that a good burger. I had one the other day with a Red Truck lager, and I swear I was… Sorry, we digress. Jim’s all about flavour.
R PHILOSOPHY
Eat good food. Keep it fresh. Keep it simple. Be creative. Let seasons and farmers be our guide. Be good to the planet, and all who are on it. Laugh. Share. Do what you do best: with us, it’s burgers.



Owners Trudy Allan and Kathy Johnson like to think that Coyotes is a reflection of their personal philosophies and lifestyles. Choosing to live and play in this majestic mountain setting sets the basis for a healthy and interesting restaurant concept.

Opened in 1993, Coyotes uniqueness comes from our dedication to whole food and its roll in a healthy lifestyle. Living in the mountains brings an appreciation for life and living it to its fullest. Utilizing foods closest to their natural states, before processing and refining them, ensures that we get the most nourishment we can from them. Our goal at Coyotes is to create great tasting food that is good for you.

We chose Southwestern/Mediterranean cuisine because of their fresh fruits, vegetables, chiles, pastas and whole grains. As we evolve we have adopted a slight cross cultural food fusion, finding fresh ingredient cooking prevalent in other parts of the world. We encourage our chefs’ individual talents to create new, eclectic, fresh food with a touch of class.
