Okanagan Valley Wineries
Stoneboat Vineyards is a family owned and operated artisan winery in Oliver, BC. For nearly 30 years we have farmed on the South Okanagan's Black Sage Bench, where our rocky, calcareous soils, warm days and cool nights create perfect conditions for growing premium Pinot varietals of distinct character and complexity.
Founded in 1979, Sumac Ridge is the oldest operating estate winery in British Columbia and has been dedicated to producing 100% British Columbia grown wines since its inception. The winery is nestled in the heart of the Okanagan Valley near the scenic town of Summerland. Its celebrated Black Sage Vineyard is located in the Southern Okanagan, near the town of Oliver. Sumac Ridge Estate Winery offers a full range of quality VQA wines under the names: Sumac Ridge; Black Sage Vineyard and Steller’s Jay Sparkling.
Hand harvested and gently pressed, our wines are slowly fermented in small batch stainless steel tanks. The result is an amazingly fresh, crisp, fruit forward wine series. We invite you to come taste for yourself in our tasting room.
Summerhill is Canada's largest organic winery, and as of 2012 was BC's first Demeter Certified Biodynamic Vineyard. The winery, owned by the Cipes family, is also home to Summerhil's organic Sunset Bistro, serving food grown and raised by local organic producers, including an onsite permaculture-style vegetable garden.
TH Wines are by hand, a philosophy that takes shape during winter pruning, when individual vines are given direction for the season, and ends when finished wines are lifted off the bottling line, with the work of the vintage intact. Despite the limits to production that are inherent in this choice, we favour the human touch and the winemaker’s craft over the work of machines, for the grace it brings to the vintage. These are honest demands we impose on ourselves. Letting go of the industrial norms has manifold rewards, the topmost being the joy we get from being fully immersed in a timeless food tradition.
IT’S ABOUT TIME AND PLACE. TIME can be measured in many ways. We started on this path years ago, and have been growing grapes for more than two decades at our Sundial Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench. Our vines receive more hours of sunshine than any other viticulture region. It’s these hours, days, and years that create a depth of character when crafting exceptional wines. Winemaking is about time and place. This is TIME.
