Description: We are celebrating our 34th year as an estate winery in 2015. Sumac Ridge...
We are celebrating our 34th year as an estate winery in 2015. Sumac Ridge was the first operating estate winery in British Columbia. We have been dedicated to producing wine from 100% BC grown grapes since our inception. We are home to three unique brands in one iconic location. Sumac Ridge Private Reserve wines have welcomed you home for over 30 years. The traditional method sparkling wines of Steller's Jay are wonderfully vivacious, perfect for any occasion. The bold wines of the Black Sage Vineyard speak to the terroir, telling the story of 20 year-old vines planted in the right place at the right time. Visit the winery for a tasting, tour or picnic. We are open for tastings year round, tours and picnics run from May to October.

We were lucky to have our host Tony from Lake Okanagan B&B takes us to a few local wineries. Sumac Ridge was by far my favorite. The winery offered food pairings with every wine we tasted. The resident chef's description of each treat he presented was so pleasant and enhanced each wine beautifully.

This was my daughter's first wine tasting in Canada, and one of her first tastings ever. I appreciated the time the man working the counter took to explain things to her and to encourage her to express her opinions of the wine she tasted. Most of the wineries here have good wine, so it is the people working with the... More

We stopped in recently, as we had time, and because it was their low season, we had the place to ourselves. We were helped by a wonderful, very knowledgeable gentleman, who seemed more than happy to have us hang around and chat about wines. He educated us on a lot of things, and we had a great time just chatting... More

We stopped here on a Tuesday afternoon and had the entire place to ourselves. We were able to enjoy a leisurely wine tasting and ask all the questions we wanted. The gentleman helping us out explained the differences between the Sumac Ridge wine brands and how they were made -- all very interesting. He even provided some excellent dark chocolate... More

Great winery to try if you are in the area. All their wines are good but their Rose is particularly nice. The staff is always friendly delivering great customer service. The last two times we have bought wine there ( three bottles each time ) they have given us a complimentary canvas bag to carry it in. Give them a... More

We popped in there as a bridal party because we were too early to go back to our wedding venue after pictures. We wanted to freshen up in their washroom and have fun with some pictures doing a wine tasting. Our intentions were not to spend money at that point and the staff were so accomodating and lovely! they helped... More
