Owner description: We are celebrating our 33rd year as an estate winery in 2014. 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 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

We stopped here after visiting 6-7 other wineries, mainly because of its trip-advisor ranking. So happy we did! I had been searching for a remarkable red the whole trip, here I found several. The valley seems littered with great whites, but here I found my reds! Highly recommend.

I'm going to be up front. I'm a tour guide with an Okanagan wine touring company so I get to see it all and of all the winery tours I get to take people to, this is the best. For this place, it isn't just about themselves but about the wine. Really? Yes! Because wine is the cause of this... More

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
