Da Silva is a family owned winery with deep roots on the Naramata Bench. The family of Richard Da Silva, the winery’s co-owner and winemaker, emigrated to the Okanagan Valley from Portugal in 1955 and purchased an orchard on the Naramata Bench in 1955.
Today, Da Silva is constituted of 11 vineyards, each specially selected for distinct terroir and qualities. This attention to detail and craftmanship combine to produce premium, small lot wines. Many of Da Silva’s red wines are aged for 36 months or more.
If you’re familiar with the Naramata Bench but haven’t visited recently, you may recognise Da Silva’s location. The winery was previously known as Misconduct and featured a 1920’s prohibition theme. Situated on Upper Bench Road, the views from the back of the winery of Penticton and Munson Mountain are gorgeous.
