Upper Bench Winery & Creamery has already paired two our favourite things. Now, imagine those things just showed up at your door every few months.

It doesn’t get much better than that. At Upper Bench they call it the Curds and Corks Club.

Unlike any other club you’ve belonged to, this club’s winemaker Gavin Miller selects a mix of seasonally appropriate wines from his portfolio and his wife Shana perfectly pairs it with one of her decadent cheeses.

With four annual membership options, you can choose the right club for you. A full member of the Curds & Corks Club will receive six wines and three perfectly paired cheeses for $180 per shipment, while a half corked member enjoys three perfectly paired wines and cheeses for $105 per shipment. If you’re more partial to wine or to cheese, there’s a club for you too; a Cork Club member receives six bottles of a mix of reds and whites for $140 per shipment and a Curd Club member receives three artisan cheeses for just $35 per shipment.

“Our wine clubs are a great way to expand your wine taste, knowledge, and culinary repertoire because we pair our wines with our cheese and also provide wine and cheese recipes for our members,” says big cheese Shana. “It’s also a great excuse to get together with your friends and impress them with your perfect pairings.”

Looking for a full wine and cheese immersion in a memorable setting? Pull up a chair at the Upper Bench patio starting May 1st and enjoy a wine flight and cheese platter while the sun sets.
