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.

There are so many different winery's to check out in the area that you need to go through the map and see what area you want and check out the large number of them to sample at. We found Sumac a lovely place in close proximity to other very nice winery's. The gentleman assisting with our tasting was very knowledgeable... More

John was amazing as the presenter in terms of the wines and the cheeses that were paired together. We both thought this was an excellent value and gave us incredible insights into how to better appreciate the wines that we purchased.

I reserved for the wine and cheese paring/tasting and was told that we could stay for a picnic lunch and bring our own snacks. We did just that and had a wonderful lunch overlooking the golf course and picturesque mountains of the Okanagan. The day was perfect - good weather; good service; good food and wine; and good company. The... More

Awesome! Awesome! Super interesting. John C was an incredible host and most informative. The wine/food pairings were a first and were an excellent change from typical tastings. A must do!
