Naramata Bench: Beautiful views and fantastic wineries

Naramata is another must-see area of the Okanagan

One of the most charming areas of the Okanagan is the community of Naramata Bench, near Penticton.

This beautiful area has stunning views of Okanagan Lake and features about 30 wineries.

We have often arranged to be dropped off at Chute Lake, which is far above Naramata on the Kettle Valley Railway, and then cycled the 20 or so kilometres down hill, drinking in the fantastic views of the Okanagan Valley, passing through the occasional rock tunnel, before peddling off to wineries in the area.

Although during the COVID-19 crisis, many Naramata Bench events and tours have been cancelled or postponed, you can get up-to-date information on this website as you plan your next Okanagan adventure.
