We arrived at Bench 1775 eagerly anticipating one of their oven-cooked pizzas and were sorely disappointed to find out they only served lunch on weekends! The patio was definitely the nicest we came across both in Penticton, Oliver and Osoyoos, so again, very disappointed to not sit out and enjoy a meal. However, our host - a young man from France - made up for it with his dry wit and generous pours. We will definitely be returning next time we are in Penticton, and this time on a weekend!

Stopped here during a tour of naramata wineries. We were hungry and the sign for homemade pizzas caught our eye and was the main reason we stopped. The choices were few, just 3 pizzas but we ordered 2 and both were delicious. Thin crust, cooked on he BBQ with fresh and delicious toppings. We enjoyed a glass of wine, crisp and delicious and the kids had sparkling peach juice. We also loved the live band that was playing. The views are fantastic, it was a perfect place to spend an hour relaxing in the sunshine.

Yup, it's true. The patio view at Bench 1775 is by far the best one in the whole Okanagan Valley. And now the patio is bigger. We are locals and we love to sit out on the patio sipping wine, listening to live music and chatting with friends. The wines are of good value to boot!

Best staff of all the winery's. Beautiful views and a great patio! I got engaged there this summer and the staff were just as excited as I was about it. They let me do exactly what I wanted with a smile on there face. Thanks

Check out this view. There is no better place for a glass (or better still...a bottle!) of wine to let yourself unwind and soak up some sun!

Val and staff will welcome you warmly. They feature live music and even wonderful pizzas to augment the wines and views.
