We had booked onto a full day wine tour & this was our first stop. Jim our guide was great!! We got to try 6 different wines, 1 sparkling, 2 white, 2 red & a port. We had 4 dishes paired with the wines, which just complimented the wines so well. Jim was very knowledgeable, friendly & made the tour... More

We are already members of the Great Estates wine club, so we knew we liked the Sumac Ridge wine, but a great reason to come is because Kurt in the tasting/wine shop is so much fun. He's friendly and knowledgeable and has such fun stories to tell. We'll be stopping by again next year!

We recently attended to Summerland on a get-away, while touring wineries. We had occasion to stop in at the Sumac Ridge Estate Winery. We were treated by a very knowledgeable and humorous spokes person for SREW, Jim. Jim was able to share a great deal of information about the area and the products while keeping us in stitches before the... More

We were lucky to catch this at the end of a long day of tasting...it was one of our favorite stops! I'm almost positive we were helped by Jim (sounds like it from his rave reviews). Excellent service, fees were waived with purchase, and everything we tried was great! Loved the Pipe and the Black Sage Merlot, tasty!! Were given... More

We just stopped by as we knew some of their products. We tried the Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer, sparkling Gewürztraminer (loved that one!), Cabernet Franc (superb, but could get better with a couple of years aging). The lady was very helpful, giving great amount of information and tasting was free with purchase. On the top of that, $10 rebate with TD... More

Well worth visiting, this smaller, personal-touch winery exemplifies the true nature of Okanagan wines: great wines in a beautiful setting. The staff (that's YOU, Jim!!), is most helpful.

Stopped to try them for lunch. Apparently the restaurant has been closed, and we were told that it wasn't just for the season but a permanent decision. Too bad as they would have a fantastic spot. Enjoyed the wine tastings with a happy, friendly, informative attendant. Will be trying more wine varieties as a result of the education. Thanks.

The Winery has excellent wines at very reasonable prices. Have been for tastings and lunch here and have always enjoyed the day! Worth a stop as you enter Summerland!

Oue experience started with our super friendly host John C. He started off by showing us the vineyard and how the grapes are grown, pruned, etc... His knowledge of wine, winemaking and wine pairing was exceptional. This is a wonderful stop on any wine tour. The restaurant always prepares very tasty dishes and sometimes has live music.
