Sage Hills Organic Vineyard & Winery

Sage Hills Vineyard began to take shape in 2006 when our family, after an exhaustive two-year search for the perfect grape-growing land (that included parts of Washington, Oregon, the Gulf Islands and the eastern shore of Vancouver Island) bought a 11 acre Farm in Summerland, BC. We began to build our home and reshape the old peach, plum and apricot orchard into land suitable for grapes. Over 3,500 truckloads of undisturbed soil from the edge of Okanagan Lake were brought in to terraform the land.  This soil saw the light of day after the last ice age around 25,000 years ago. After much consultation with a French viticulturist and a local organic grape-grower, we were advised to plant Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir on our site. These varietals were chosen because of Summerland’s temperate microclimate and because the estate’s soil is particularly well-suited to these three varieties. After all, “If you are to make great wines, you must first grow the right grapes in the proper location.” Rick Thrussell organic grape grower. In 2013, we added a Syrah and Syrah Rosé with organic grapes grown on a two-acre site just north of Oliver.  Sage Hills is now producing our fourth vintages of our premium, small-lot, single vineyard wines from 100% organically grown, Salmon-Safe certified grapes.  The Thrussell family invites you to come visit our vineyard and see the difference that commitment to quality and environment make in the style and character of our outstanding wines.
