Love the red wine at this place ! The bread is pretty good too if you can get some ! I witnessed a frenzy today as people were trying to get to it as it was brought out.

Who serves specialty homemade breads with wine? Platinum Bench does...and they do it right! What a fantastic idea.... no crackers, just fresh bread right out of the oven. We ended up buying 3 loaves of fresh bread and the Gamay...brilliant!!

Platinum Bench is a wonderful must stop on any Okanagan winery tour. Murray is the delightful proprietor, and his love and knowledge of wine is unsurpassed. Platinum Bench is unpretentious and very welcoming! You recognize his sense of humour and his quest to continue to learn. Paired with his wife Fiona's homemade breads, the visit is well worth it

When in the Oliver area tasting wine or looking for fantastic bread products you have to drop in on Platinum Bench Estate Winery. Third year in existence. The staff and ownership or very friendly and unpretentious. You are made welcome immediately in this very small intimate wine tasting area. The bread made by Fiona is fantastic! So yummy!

Such a great spot. It's located down the road from the Burrowing Owl Winery. This winery is smaller and very welcoming. The wine tasting was paired with their freshly made bread which you can buy - and we sure did. It was still warm! The kids were thrilled to be able to entertain the dog outside. It's not pretentious and... More

This winery was recommended not only for the wine but for the excellent bakery. We visited and Murray entertained us while we sampled his wines and his wife's bread. Purchased both and came back again the next day for more of the delicious bread. This is a must visit on the wine tasting tour. You will not be disappointed.

We heard about Platinum Bench (PB) from neighbours on the coast a few days earlier and, arriving in Osoyoos, we decided to track it down. The experience began positively - PB is located in the 'Golden Mile', arguably the best wine growing region in Canada. It only got better! We have been to numerous wine tastings over the years but...

stopped here due to the advertising of their artisan bread, baked on site. a good pear and cheese bun and another using salami and cheese. both very good and hit the spot as we drove amongst the vineyards on a lovely spring day.

We arrived here towards the end of the day.The owner was pouring wine and looked like he had been all day. Clearly tired he mustered up the strength to smile and entertain while we sipped his wine, ate his wife's bread, and listened to his story. We had a great time with him.
