Owner description: 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, tour, food and wine pairing experience or picnic. We are open year round for tastings and our tours and experiences run from May to October.

We were doing a staff party wine tour on Friday night and Sumac Ridge was just about to close as it was 5pm. We asked Shea, the wine man, to please stay open and he did! We all really enjoyed the wine and his knowledge. The atmosphere is great and there was more than just wine to purchase. What a fun visit!!

We attended the mastering Meritage and it was an amazing experience. We tasted and discussed 5 different varieties of red and then tried to replicate the wine makes Meritage. The class was very informative and lots of fun. The food was wonderful and they topped it off with chocolates and port. Highly recommend this experience and would definitely go again. Sumac never disappoints!

We are delighted that you enjoyed our Mastering Meritage event. It is always fun to play wine maker for the day. We look forward to having more of these events and are very excited to release our Black Sage Vineyard Meritage.

We had 40-50 people who had never been to the Okanagan visiting during a wedding weekend so we booked a tasting at Sumac Ridge. The experienced exceeded our expectations and everyone talked about it all weekend. Shea and Keith were our guides; they were extremely knowledgeable, professional & fun as we tasted different sparkling wines, visited the cave and my wife and I even got to do a sabring ceremony. Such a blast, definitely highly recommend Sumac Ridge for the facility, the friendly people and the great wine!

What an amazing experience. In the wine cellar of Sumac Ridge where they paired sparkling wines with Delicious unique appetizers that blew our socks off. Our guide Alix is a one of a kind, wonderful woman who knew her stuff and welcomed us as soon as we came (5 minutes late) to the door of the winery. We felt welcomed right away. Alix knew about the wines and made us laugh. it was a very unique and very wonderful experience. Thank you Alix, BTW we all bought a bottle of sparkling wine because they were soooo tasty and they had a sparkling wine from a Pinot Noir wine that had beautiful red bubbles on opening. Absolutely tasty and unique. Guess what I took home?
