    A fantastic wine tasting experience.
    This winery is known for its sparkling wines. This becomes blatantly obvious when the taster learns that there brut sparkling wine has won Canada’s best sparkling wine category 30 years in a row now! (although I don’t know which organization awarded the award :-) Regardless of accolade semantics, we had a simply amazing wine tasting here on a somewhat overcast Saturday afternoon. The gal pouring our wine was very knowledgeable, and frankly a pleasant, and excellent representative of this winery. Although known for their sparkling wines, I find they have some really great tasting red wines. My favorites being the ketter, and toadstool Syrah. You get the opportunity to to enjoy one of their award-winning ice wines as well at the end of your tasting. As I’m sure you’re aware, these delightful specialty wines are not cheap, so this is a nice added touch. If you’re going there with someone else, why not try a different one each and share? In our case, we were able to compare between vintages of 2012, and 2016 of their Merlot, small series or lot ice wine. Just look at the pictures… Look at that color. It tastes as good as it looks. This winery has an amazing restaurant as well, and they offer takeout meals, including frozen meals for you to prepare at home, paired with your favorite Summerhill wine. Although we haven’t tried them, yet, we will. And if you know anything about this winery, every focus , or every pursuit of this winery is rooted in sustainability, and organic, sourcing and production. I’m sure the taste of the food that you take home will reflect this mission, or set of values. We’ll let you know.

    A disappointing return to Summerhill.
    We went to Summerhill Pyramid Winery where we visited last year in the hope of another great lunch, only to be disappointed. Their approach has changed, no "table service" as I have known here. Instead you order at the counter from a limited menu, get your own water, but the wine is delivered, not salt or pepper, asked fot but nothing delivered. We talked to someone in the wine purchase area, found that policies have changed. For the worst as I see it.

    Sour Grapes on the Food Service
    We bypassed the wine tasting as we were wanting to have a glass of wine and food on the deck overlooking the gorgeous views. We ordered the charcuterie for $42.00 and while edible it was overpriced for the tiny bit we received and the toast was everyday bread you would use for a child’s pb&j sandwich. The rose wine was lovely and I would go back to enjoy a glass on the deck but I would not order food. We also did not like preordering our selection at the cash register as it seemed impersonal and no one was there for 10 minutes. It was also self serve water service. This winery definitely does not make guests feel welcomed or special.

    The best winery in BC
    I had a wonderful time visiting Summerhill, their story, culture and products are simply amazing. I ordered some wine to be shipped all the way across the country in Québec and they delivered efficiently and amazingly fast. I would visit every weekend if it wasn’t for the 5000km distance. I strongly recommend Summerhill to anyone of all ages visiting the beautiful paradise on earth that is the Okanagan valley.

    Great winery, great tour - worth a visit
    Summerhill staff gave us an excellent (whole hour) tour of the winery, including the fields, pyramids and finished with a wine tasting. Our guide (Elo) was excellent and she was very patience and gave us a great tour! Very informative and they take a lot of effort and pride in making their winery organic. Overall, excellent tour and winery, wine is decent as well. Would recommend a visit.

    Just needs a few tweaks but we always come back.
    We live in Kelowna in Black Mountain and we try to bring all of our guests to the restaurant for at least one meal during their stay. The vegan calamari and salmon are always a winner. The staff are always friendly and Stephen, the owner, if he’s around, will stop off at your table just to say hi. The organic Pinot Gris is very distinctive with an almost golden colour and it is very aromatic. So why only a 4 star you ask. Communications when trying to make a reservation are next to zero. We have been turned away at the door because no one would pick up the telephone at the restaurant so we would drive down to the restaurant but we would always have a back up destination in mind which many times we have had to go to. I suggest that maybe they could have a calendar on their web site for when they are hosting larger events to save guests from driving down and being turned away and disappointed. Last night (25th) as usual the food was amazing and Lynne our server was great extremely personal, friendly and knowledgeable. Her manager was also there at a table and she took her ( The only server) away from her duties for an extended period of time to talk about work and this took her away from her duties so we just sat patiently and waited for her to finish so we could leave. We could here all of their conversation and it was quite peculiar that they would have a work update at the tables in a fine restaurant when we sat just 2 tables away. Either way the food, wine and service was as always a solid 10, with the season winding down maybe Stephen and his mgmt team can look at their reservation process and the ability to communicate to customers if the restaurant is booked out for private events and therefore no walk in customers would be permitted. Not the cheapest place in town but worth the trip. We will see you soon and hopefully they will post shortly if the restaurant is remaining open this winter season. Great job Stephen Stephen & Gordana

Beautiful views, great service and food. Did some wine tastings before dinner. I've been here several times over the years and it is always good. Most generous ravioli portion I have seen.

This is a great place! Wine is excellent, the views supreme. We really enjoyed the visit! The server provides interesting information about their farming method, which we found fascinating.

Atmosphere was a little unseetling and noone was enthusiastic about how/what/ehere. The wine wasn't as expected. there's lots of wineries in the area. I'd skip this one

We were on a cosmos holiday and this was an added attraction. We arrived and was told a bit about the winery then taken in to see the large vats where the wine was. These were huge but nothing special and you couldn’t see anything going on in there. We were then escorted to a pyramid where we at on chairs in a circle like an AA meeting and told to close our eyes and relax there was a crystal in the centre and it was meant to clear your mind why is beyond me.
After this little encounter we were taken back to the winery to try the wine. We were given a sparkling wine first. Then in the same glass a sweet white, then a red in the same glass which was bad as you couldn’t really distinguish the true flavours.
I don’t know if it would have been better if we were a smaller group I’m not sure. I have been to better wineries and never drank from the same glass

We arrived and were paired with Alexa for our tastings. She was wonderful! So knowledgeable about all the wines that she was pouring, confident, and super friendly. Would love to have her serve us again!
