One of the first true boutique wineries in Niagara, with vineyards first planted in 1980, Thirty Bench has hit full stride in the last few years with the focus on small lots of low-yield handcrafted wines. The winery has earned numerous accolades, including Cuvée Gold (2011) and two consecutive top-10 finishes at the Canadian Wine Awards. Single-block, old-vine Rieslings are the soul of Thirty Bench; equally fine reds and Chardonnays have also emerged since the 2005 vintage. A visit to the wood-clad winery, or joining their mailing list, is the best way to access the winery's new and library wines.

We had visited a few years ago and were not well treated. They were busy and didn’t seem interested in doing a tasting for us. This year wasn’t all that much different. They have a nice tasting area if you’re looking to do a seated tasting but the walk up tasting area is quite small and fills up quickly. This... More

My husband and I visited the winery in August on the recommendation of a couple who we met at a concert the night before. They're apparently members of the wine club there.

This was our 3rd visit to 30 Bench. We must like it! It was great to reacquaint ourselves with their great setting on the Beamsville Bench with the Toronto skyline more visible that Wednesday morning then it had been all year (according to our wine tasting attendant) We love their Rieslings, the western Beamsville Bench area of the Niagara region...

When we got tbere it was hard to find someone to ask about our scheduled tour. It was very busy and a little hectic with no information desk. I eventually stood in the wine purchasing line to find out where to go. For information about tbe winery and the wines they produce the tour in the vineyards was good. Our... More

Fourth time at Thirty Bench and it never fails to please. Arrived on a Sunday at 11:15am, perfect time to beat the crowds and have tastings at a more leisurely pace. Tastings themselves were fun and always delicious. Left with three bottles that I'll savour in the months to come! Stand out blends are Winemakers Riesling (blend of grapes from... More

My wife only drinks sweet wine and they really didnt have anything for her but he did pour her a sweet drink while I sampled and gave her some chocolate. We had great conversation and you could tell he was passionate and knowledgable. If you like traditional good wine this... More

This was my second time going on their snowshoeing tour. I have to say, all the staff here are great. The minute we checked in, we were poured a sample of their Winemaker's Riesling in a stemless glass that we got to take home. Once we finished that, they helped us get fitted with our snowshoes and then took us... More

So unfortunately there wasn't enough snow to actually snowshoe - so we got a walking tour of the vineyard. The tour guides were knowledgable and pleasant. The wines we tasted were decent and enticed us enough to purchase a bottle of the wine makers red at the end of the tour. The grounds are picturesque and the hiking lasted about... More
