Begin with a guided tour of the Summerhill Pyramid Winery where you will learn how “champagne” is made. Taste their amazing wines and visit the replica of the Great Pyramid of Egypt which is said to enhance the flavours of the wine. Summerhill is the largest certified organic vineyard in Canada. Summerhill Pyramid Winery was named ‘Canadian Wine Producer of the Year’ in 2009 by the International Wine & Spirits Competition in London, England. Cipes Rose scored a gold medal at the 2013 Effervescents du Monde, and was named one of the Top 10 highest scoring wines of the competition! Summerhill is now the first Demeter Certified Biodynamic Vineyard in BC! In 2017 they were recognized at the Chardonnay du Monde competition for the best Chardonnay ice-wine in the world.

Visit Sperling Vineyards where Ann Sperling brings 25 years of passionate winemaking experience home to the vineyard she grew up on. Combining love and labor, Ann takes pride in crafting elegant award winning wines of character from the Sperling family estate and continues a cherished tradition begun by her great grandparents over 150 years ago. The View Winery is situated on a parcel of land that has been in the Turton / Ward family for 5 generations. Historically, apples were grown on the property. In the mid 1990’s a transition began and orchard rows were replaced with vines. In 2006, plans began to make their own premium wines and the beloved old packinghouse built in 1922 was transformed into a winery. Their newly renovated wine shop opened its doors in the spring of 2012. The View also received the 2013 Kelowna Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award for Hospitality and Tourism. Their 2012 Pinotage won a Bronze Medal at the 2015 All-Canadian Wine Championships.
