The Naramata Bench experience is unlike any other wine region in the Okanagan. The challenge isn’t getting to the Bench, it’s how many of the wineries will you be able to visit before its time to head home! There are twenty-eight wineries hidden along a quiet winding fourteen kilometers starting inside the city limits of Penticton and finishing in the heart of Naramata Township.
Naramata Bench Wineries have always had an appetite to present their wines and region in fun and accessible ways, making Naramata Bench a must for exceptional wine holidays and wine experiences.
Located in the heart of Naramata Bench, Hillside provides a well rounded exceptional experience. Hillside’s Winemaker Kathy Malone produces top quality Okanagan Valley award-winning wines destined for many markets.

Red Rooster is located among the rolling hills of Naramata Bench Road, perched high above Okanagan Lake. Red Rooster Winery offers a wine experience that’s a short detour from the expected. For starters, you’ll notice art throughout the winery. And it’s not the kind you’d typically expect to see. The best example of this is Frank the Baggage Handler. A local celebrity, this large statue of a naked guy graces the lawn.
Salvaged wood from the original Naramata Train Dock was used to build the large arched doorways that form the entrances to the tasting room. You’ll then be greeted by friendly, knowledgeable staff who are excited to take you through the Red Rooster award-winning portfolio.
