Sip. Savour. Groove.


Each spring, 8 wineries celebrate the glory of the Beamsville Bench by pouring new and favourite vintages, inviting their favourite chefs to create inspired dishes, and grooving with live bands at each venue. Graze the Bench has quickly become one of the most popular events in wine country. This cluster of boutique VQA wineries offer not only some of the most celebrated wines in Ontario, but unforgettable vistas of rolling vineyards and Lake Ontario. In partnership with a collection of Niagara’s best chefs and live bands, this is a wine event that will become a perennial date on your calendar.


This year at Hidden Bench, we will be featuring famed Chef Victor Barry and his team from Splendido restaurant who will be cooking up a Cumbrae Farms 100 Day Aged Chuck Burger with Niagara Gold and all the fixings for us.

Sensational Soul Jam is once again amping up and we will be pouring the 2013 Estate Riesling and 2013 Locust Lane Rose by the glass.
