Experiences & Events

At Hidden Bench Estate Winery we are fortunate to be located on the Beamsville Bench, home to many of the best wines produced in Ontario. Our critically acclaimed estate winery is nestled in the heart of the picturesque Bench, making it the perfect place to relax, unwind, taste and discover.

We invite you to join us to discover our wines and experiences at these events.



Terroir Tasting

Date: Daily, 10:00 – 17:00

Experience 4 of our very limited Terroir Series wines in appropriate stemware at our tasting bar. One of our tasting associates will be on hand to share with you, as much or as little (you choose), about our wine and our winemaking style. One tasting fee is waived with each purchase of 3 bottles.

Hidden Bench is a small lot estate winery and our tasting area is equally intimate. For the comfort of all our guests we recommend you book your tasting appointment ahead of time if you are travelling with more than 4 people in your group.
