“Don't bother !”

Platinum Bench Winery
Ranked #11 of 56 things to do in Oliver

Reviewed 29 July 2017

Even after we had purchased a bottle of wine we were told that we could not sample the wonderful bread (even though there was samples sitting out on the counter) and that they would only let people sample the bread with certain pairings of wine! Terrible customer service. Would rather give my business to other wineries in the area who are a lot more friendly.

Really enjoyed the pairings of their amazing breads with their assortment of wines! It's abit small inside as we were there when there were several groups doing their tasting. Also one day when we popped in for bread it was all sold out and it was just after lunch. Boohoo. Hope they expand their business into more of a bistro style place with better seating.

Don't bother visiting in the afternoon as they sell out of bread by noon and also seem to be sold out of half their wines.

Even if you are not a wine drinker, you must visit this winery if you love bread!! This is some of the most flavorful and delicious breads I have ever tasted!! When you do a wine tasting, there is 5 different kinds and each has a bread accompaniment. The wines, I must say were not my favorite, but they were still good. The loaves of bread a bit expensive (maybe $6 a loaf) but this is money well spent!!! The baker here is an absolute genius and carb goddess!!

Stopped here on a wine tour, the wine was really good but made so much better by the paired breads which worked so well together. My only disappointment was that as a vegetarian I missed out on one bread as it had meat in and the hadn't checked before serving it. It is obviously popular as it was very busy even at 11am so probably why they couldn't be as attentive as other places where we were the only customers.
