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.

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 wife and I have been going to Summerland for the last 25 years. We do our annual stop at Sumac for some great wine selections. Can't go wrong. Haley was very friendly and helpful.

The first stop on our winery tour of the Okanagan. John C was so friendly and informative. The wines we sampled were nice. We joined the Great Estates Okanagan wine club, can't wait for our November bottles to arrive.
