Naramata Bench in the South Okanagan – live above & beyond.

Fruit forward, lovely notes of waterfront, with a hint of domestic bliss.

Naramata is the birthplace of the wine industry in the province of BC. As local tourism site DiscoverNaramata.com states so eloquently: “With over 40 wineries within a 20 minute drive, you’ll find plenty of terroir to swirl, sip and savour.” Between vineyards and orchards, lakeside B&Bs and sun baked country escapes, the Naramata Benchlands are mere minutes from the town of Penticton. Naramata truly is the personification of beautiful British Columbia for approximately two thousand residents.


The local school is Naramata Elementary School with kindergarten to grade six. As a member of Okanagan Skaha School District #67, they participate in a local Indigenous Education and Late French Immersion Programs. Penticton Secondary is the closest high school with school bus service through most of the community.


Located within the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen in the heart of wine country in British Columbia, Naramata is a short drive from the north side of Penticton on Highway 97 and overlooks the southeast shore of Okanagan Lake. Founded in 1907 by John More Robinson, the semi-arid climate of Naramata is reminiscent of Southern California and Southern Italy – ideal growing conditions for grapes and peach, plum, pear, cherry, apricot & apple trees.

Residential Housing

Amid the traditional lakefront cottages and small single family homes in this special Okanagan enclave, buyers will also find multi-million dollar waterfront estates, the kind you find featured in house and garden magazines. The Naramata Benchlands are a natural attraction to potential winery, vineyard, orchard growers or bed and breakfast operators. At the heart is an idyllic village, the setting for the hit film ‘My American Cousin’ written and directed by local Sandra Wilson. It’s important to know that much of Naramata lies within the unique BC Agricultural Land Reserve.
