Grape juice magically transforms into wine in the same way milk becomes cheese and a 1972 Dodge Dart becomes an even older 1972 Dodge Dart.

- The wine program at Thirty Bench is built on its small lots program. Grapes are hand picked and hand sorted from vineyards that are low yielding. Production is tiny as a result but of high quality and unique from vineyard to vineyard. – St. Catharines Standard
- All of our food was good and nicely presented. Staff as [sic] friendly. Beautiful room with a great view. Don't miss the tour of the winery. – PAGolflady, Peller Estates, TripAdvisor
