Hidden Bench Vineyards and Winery is an artisanal winery dedicated to producing ultra premium wines solely from vineyards situated within the Beamsville Bench VQA sub- appellation. Non-interventionist, quality focused and terroir driven Hidden Bench wines are produced from three distinct vineyards totaling almost 100 acres within the Beamsville Bench VQA sub-appellation. As an estate winery all of our wines are produced with only vinifera grapes grown in our own vineyards.
Founded in 2003 by Harald Thiel and family, Hidden Bench is a quality driven, terroir based winery whose varietal focus is Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling. In addition we also produce limited quantities of a white meritage, Nuit Blanche, and two distinct red blends, Terroir Cache, and the super premium La Brunante. Our 2005 production was approximately 3,000 cases and we anticipate that total production will eventually reach a maximum of about 8,000 cases in 2010. Due to strong demand and a small supply most wines are already on limited allocations.
Hidden Bench owns and sustainably farms three vineyards on the Beamsville Bench having a total area of 101 acres and a actual growing area 71.5 acres. Currently, 47.6 acres Read more »
