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.

Your tasting room is well laid out with a huge selection of not only wine but all types of accessories. The young gentleman who was pouring for us was very knowledgeable and humorous. Thanks for a...

I was lucky enough to be there when there were few customers. This means, I pretty much had John to myself. He is knowledgeable, interesting and makes you feel right at home. The wine sampling was fun, although, in truth, I already knew what I was going to purchase - Black Sage Zin and Pipe - which I did. But,... More

We had a cheese & wine flight tasting which was superb. It is so nice to have the option at a winery to taste wines paired with food. Shea was so knowledgeable, friendly and had a great sense of humour. It was a really fun learning experience and I thought the wines excellent and affordable.

Fabulous stop on our wine tour, this one to Sumac Ridge. It was well worth it and one that we'll definitely be coming back to. Super friendly staff, and the wine was so good. They taught us a lot about pairing.

This winery stays open all year. We stopped in to get a specific wine and stayed to enjoy a wine and cheese tasting. John was fun and informative - a very enjoyable experience.

We visited Sumac Ridge on Thanksgiving weekend in 2016 (having visited once before in 2011). We had booked a one hour tour, and were pleasantly surprised that it ended up being a private tour. John was an excellent and informative guide, and we learned a lot and very much enjoyed the wines we tasted, as well as the pairings. We... More

We enjoyed the wine pairing experience. John was very informative with both the wine and the pairing of the different food. Learning the history of the winery was also informative. We would highly recommend this winery for a visit when in Summerland!
