Wine For Waves


Join Us

Be the first to experience the spring release wines from the Naramata Bench – while supporting the conservation of our oceans.

On May 2, join us for a delightfully delicious evening as we uncork Naramata Bench’s first and finest spring release wines. Sample tasty Ocean Wise culinary offerings, meet the Naramata Bench winemakers and owners, and bid on silent auction items of fine wines from Naramata Bench and exclusive prize packages.

It’s like a pre-season visit to Naramata Bench for one magical evening!

Tickets are in high demand, so get yours early to avoid disappointment.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program. This is a 19+ event. All ticket sales are final.
