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.

Wine and cheese tasting

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!

Having stayed with friends in Kelowna, we decided to visit a few of the local wineries before driving back to Vancouver. John at Sumac Ridge greeted us at the tasting bar and was gracious and welcoming! We immediately knew we were going to have fun! He was a professional and passionate about his product. We tasted (only reds) and were... More

Sumac Ridge's Private Reserve range of wines is, in my opinion, the best value for your money in the Okanagan. The 2015 Gewürztraminer and the 2015 Pinot Noir are both outstanding. This is our go-to wine for every day drinking.

Sumac Ridge is in a gorgeous setting with breathtaking views. The wines are exceptional with some interesting varietals. I especially liked the Pinot Gris and Gerwurz. All of the BC wineries were so friendly and took time to talk with you to explain their wines and answer questions.

My friends and I went to Sumac Ridge as part of Top Cat Wine tours for a Thanksgiving/Girls weekend/fall wine festival getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed the wine presentation ( and we've experienced ALOT) and the ambiance of Sumac Ridge. John C was an extremely knowledgeable and personable guide. So much so that I signed up for a Sumac Ridge Champagne... More

My husband I came here 13 years ago when last in Summerland and enjoyed it so much we wanted to come back. We had a romantic lunch on the balcony over looking the valley. This time we came back with an 8 year old and 12 year old. We did the food pairing tour which gave us the basic your... More
