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.

Stopped by for a wine tasting. It was 2 dollars which half went to a local food bank. What a great idea. While driving from Peachland to Summerland we stopped by a few wineries. Most were very rustic and the wine tasting rooms were closed. Great prices

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.

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.
