Get your tickets and make your plans to join the 30 wineries of the Naramata Bench Wineries Association for our renowned Annual Tailgate Party on September 14.

Celebrate harvest with us!  This is the wine and food event of the season for wine enthusiasts to plan an Okanagan Fall Wine Tour around.

Taste, Tapas and Tunes are the order of the evening – Taste the terroir through our winemakers’ renowned wines; savour the creative tapas from Naramata Chefs; while enjoying live music in a fun friendly atmosphere.



Naramata Restaurants there will be: The Vanilla Pod at Poplar Grove Winery; The Kitchen at Da Silva Winery; Hillside Winery Bistro; The Patio at Lake Breeze Vineyards; The Oven at Upper Bench Estate Winery; Smuggler’s Smoke House at Red Rooster Winery; Birds Eye at Bench 1775; and the 1908 Restaurant at the Naramata Heritage Inn.



Meet the Naramata people who grow the grapes and make their distinctive wines. Talk and taste local vintages with our thirty wineries who will be circling their trucks and look forward to welcoming you.

Tickets info by phone at 1-800-656-0713.




This year’s theme is Roaring 20’s, the era when Naramata and the Naramata Heritage Inn were in their early days. Although you needed a password to get into speakeasies of the 20’s, you just need your ticket to get into this celebration of Naramata wines and culinary delights.




If you choose to dress Roaring 20’s there will be prizes for best costumes. (You don’t have to but it adds to the fun!) Flappers were the fashion in the 1920’s for women and Harry Houdini, Babe Ruth, Amelia Earhart, Don Juan, Charlie Chaplin, Betty Boop, Mickey Mouse, and John Dillinger were the talk of the era. Jazz was hot and the blues were cool, and the Charleston was the dance craze. So have some fun and dive into a costume creation if dress-up is your thing.


Join us for a fabulous Naramata style evening of fine wine, delicious food, live music, and celebration in the heart of Naramata.

Tickets info by phone at 1-800-656-0713.



NOTE: The Naramata Heritage Inn is a boutique hotel, spa and home to the 1908 Restaurant.  For information or dinner reservations contact them directly at 778-514-5444.
