Root to Glass Experience - Currently Suspended

At Hidden Bench we are frequently asked “what make your wines so special?”. In response we are very pleased to announce our “Root to Glass” tour experience which offers you the unique opportunity to completely immerse yourself in the organic viniculture and non-interventionist winemaking that has established Hidden Bench as one of Canada’s iconic wineries.

Our Root to Glass experience combines an in-depth explanation of our organic viniculture programme including a tour of our Locust Lane Vineyard or Felseck Vineyard (weather permitting) and a behind the scenes look at our production facility and one of our barrel cellars. Along the way we will share a few surprises with you that will make this a memorable and unique experience and which will be capped off by a seated, curated tasting of 4 wines in our Veranda tasting area.   

Join us daily at 11am and allow 75 minutes for this exclusive experience which carries a cost of $65 per person!
