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 stopped off on the way back home and did not expect this to be much but they have some impressive wines. Their late harvest Vidal is unique and complex for a dessert wine. Worth the stop!

This was a new winery for us this year and I am happy we found this place. The view from the tasting room is beautiful. The wines were exceptional as well. Very good quality on all of the wines we tasted, from the whites to the reds. A couple of the wines were a bit pricey but overall not too... More

Had the pleasure of visiting this week and was impressed with the quality and selections available from this fine producer. There are several Rieslings worthy of a purchase from the Winemaker's Riesling at $19.75 to the small lots at $30.00/btl. They also make a delicious Pinot Gris and Gewurtzraminer to consider in the White wine category. The Red are equally... More

We didn't realise we were travelling through the Canadian wine country and were delighted to be recommended to stop here. The servers were all very nice and friendly, and considering this was our first ever wine tasting session, they were really knowledgeable and helpful on what we should try. As my hubby was driving we shared the tasting, otherwise I... More

We returned for a second visit to this winery. We sampled several wines last year and knew what we were looking for this year. We picked up several bottles of their small lot Rieslings and also a couple of red wines. The staff at the wine tasting were quite helpful. We will return again.

Thirty Bench is a very popular stop for a wine tasting, and for good reason. The large windows provide a lovely view of the 'bench' all the way down to the water. The wines are well known and very nice. Many of them have won awards, and the winemaker was also recently recognised as top in her field. Due to... More
