Over 63 acres of the prestigious Golden Mile Bench in Oliver, BC are home to C.C. Jentsch Cellars where the Jentsch family has been farming fruit since 1929. Chris Jentsch has been a farmer his whole life, growing cherries first and then planting to vinifera grapes in 2004, selling to large wineries. When his grape contracts expired he made the decision to start on his own!
Winemaker Amber Pratt (Jones) joined him in 2013 and is now crafting Chris Jentsch’s (pronounced Yen-ch, and rhymes with bench) estate-grown fruit into premium labels.
