About
Sumac Ridge Estate Winery 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 the home to three unique brands in one iconic location, Sumac Ridge Private Reserve, Steller's Jay traditional method sparkling wines are wonderfully vivacious, perfect for any occasion. The bold wines of the Black Sage Vineyard speak to the terroir, telling the story of the right vines planted in the right place at the right time. Visit the winery for a tasting, food and wine pairing experience or picnic. We are open year round for tastings and our experiences run from May to October.

Getting too big for their breeches.
Oct. 2021
Some customer service would be appreciated. We were "walk-in". There was nothing on the site immediately indicating an appointment would be appreciated. The wait for the tasting (although the tasting areas were empty) was about five minutes. Then a gentleman came and indicated we should go here, no here, no here. Finally we were in the right place. We only had a choice of four set "menus" of white/mixed/red/ premium I think. Other than the colour of the wine, no choice at all. The tasting was very brief. The cost for each tasting was $10 and was NOT waifed with any purchases (one bottle of wine, one cook book and one chocolate bar). I then had to wait ten to fifteen minutes (with only one person ahead of me) to be able to make my purchases. Although there was a credit card machine where we tasted, I was not able to purchase any thing at that location. A thoroughly disappointing stop. This would be the only bad stop after visiting approximately 15 wineries in a two week period.

We booked a premium wine tasting with John. Fantastic environment and equally enjoyable wines. Loved the Merlot, cabernet sauvignon and their Whiskey aged red. Highly recommend stopping here for the lovely wine and great staff.

"Splashingly" delightful tasting experience with an unpretentious host. John C. informs without imposing. Well done!

As always, a wonderful wine tasting experience! This time, we did our tasting upstairs which was nice and quiet. This allowed us to have an in depth conversation about the wine with John C. John is always so knowledgeable and friendly, we look for him every time we visit the winery. With his guidance during our wine tasting, we were able to ensure we purchased exactly what we liked, and then some!

Had an excellent afternoon - wine tasting with John C., then a delicious lunch. A great wine tasting experience - very informative! And everyone in our group found the lunch dishes exceptional. A bonus is the reasonable pricing! Highly recommend it.

ALWAYS TO RETURN!

What an excellent way to spend time at a true winery experience. Personally i think some of the wines are so much better than a lot of the OK wines.
The Host we had for the tasting was very friendly, very open, and very educated of course of the region and its wines. His suggestions we followed and had no doubt that he was right!!
JOHN C thank you very much !!!

Michele was awesome! Friendly and engaging, made the visit. It was quiet, which is unusual but nice for us as we spent more time on the tastings and chatting.
