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.

My friend and I just finished a wine tour at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery. Our guide was an ex Englishman who was very knowledgeable and hospitable. We had done a number of other winery visits with tastings. Typically they include 4-6 tastings and information about the wines. These tasting can range from no charge to $5.00 per person if not...

We were in for a pleasant surprise when we stepped into Sumac Ridge. My husband and I took up their offer for the $10 wine tour and it was definitely worth it. The wine tour came with a tasting of 6 different wines along with gourmet food bites to go along with each wine. Mona was our tour guide --... More

Sumac Ridge is easy to find (it's right off the highway - you can't miss it!) and they offer wines for everyone to love. They have three different labels to help distinguish between the type and quality of wine. They offer plenty of tastings and their store is full of fun things to look at. You can even do a... More

This has to be the best wine tour in the valley! The tour started in the sparkling wine cave, then went to white wines in the sunshine and red wines in the wine shop. All of the wines are paired with amazing gourmet food. It is a wine experience not to miss!

A must stop each time we come which is pretty much every year. Cab franc is good, but love the pipe. Reasonable prices and used to have a great restaurant but not sure about that anymore as it has been a while and does not seem to be open when we go.

We enjoyed our visit to this winery. The rose and sparkling wines were our favourites. Easily accessible from the highway. Staff were friendly and informative. We would definitely go back.

A must visit winery to try their Rose. We stop here whenever we are visiting the Okanagan to pick some wine up. The views are also nice and they are located just on the outskirts of Summerland

This winery offers a wonderful tasting tour involving pairing of 5 - 6 food/wine combinations for $10. An excellent value, as the food was artfully and thoughtfully presented to complement each wine perfectly, the wine is delicious and the overall experience 10 out of 10. It is an informative and enjoyable experience from beginning to end. We purchased the Rose... More

Our Private Reserve Rose has been our top seller this summer. This refreshing wine with zesty acidity pairs well with a wide variety of dishes, from charcuterie and cheese plates through to grilled chicken and seafood. Cheers, Marion More
