One of my favorite wineries to take friends and family who are visiting. The setting is beautiful with the lake so close, amazing sunsets. The tours are very interesting and fun, the private tasting at the end is a nice treat. They have an amazing Riesling right now that all my friends and family just love. The Restaurant is also...

We were at the Summerhill Pyramid Winery for the 2014 Fall Wine Festival and had a wonderful server! Michael-James was very knowledgable, personable and has a great sense of humour. The atmosphere, view AND WINES were all excellent!

We went here yesterday for a wedding of our friends son. A nice setting with the lake in the background. The wedding went real well and the weather co-operated.

We ended up here near the end of the day -- so there may have been a bit of a rush for the staff to leave -- though a couple of hours should be plenty of time for a tasting. This winery bills itself as being organic. This may be why the reds seemed unflavourful, or it may be because... More

Dear Altius10, Thank you for this thoughtful review. A note about the red wines: some are extremely flavourful and ready to drink young, such as the 2012 Tiferet, 2011 Baco Noir, and 2011 Alive Organic Red, and others will indeed benefit from age or at least a couple of hours of decanting, such as the 2011 Pinot Noir, 2010 Syrah,...

My mom said you eat at home for the food and eat out for the service. Not an expert except to say that a waiter is supposed to serve. There was service when the server found the time. Imagine that, we are pleasant we thought. Anyways maybe a bad day. To be fair, I have bought a my share of... More

We visited 9 wineries on this trip, and I'd have to say that Summerhill had the best tour going. Although the tour was $10 each, each ticket could be redemed for $5 off on each bottle of wine you buy. (ie, 2 tour tickets gets $10 off if you buy 2 bottles). So that effectively made the tour $5 each.... More

The views of Lake Okanagan cannot be beat if you sit on their patio. We had the added pleasure of watching a wedding and watching the sunset. It was a warm evening and the background music was playing softly in the background so that our coup could enjoy a pleasant conversation while we were sipping our wine.

Not my favorite wines but the view must be seen. Our server didn't love our group's character... ;) The Cykes bubbly was pretty good. I bought the Baco Noir as a souvenir.

Since I'm born and raised in BC, I've been aware that the Okanagan (OK) has been producing some great wines but as a non-drinker I haven't explored anything beyond that. However, my wife enjoys wine so we decided to do a wine tour. We ended up at Summerhill because it's organic, and we have made fresh, local, and organic foods/drink... More

Hello vrecksler, Really glad you had a good experience, even if you do not like wine! Did you taste our Ehrenfelser during your tour? It is often a 'gateway' wine. Cheers, Ezra Cipes CEO, Summerhill Pyramid Winery More

My partner and I had a lovely time at Summerhill. We loved meeting Clarissa at the tasting bar and were so grateful she took us into the pyramid since we had just missed a tour - there is an obvious culture of worker empowerment and customer service here. When people are treated well, they feel happy, and we did. There... More
