This morning we suggest you begin at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery in Summerland for a tour and tastings. Known as one of the pioneer wineries of the BC wine industry, Sumac Ridge produces a variety of excellent wines including a sparkling Brut that few Okanagan winemakers produce.
Your next stop in Summerland is at Thornhaven Winery, situated in a quaint little valley overlooking Okanagan Lake. Located only two blocks away is DirtyLaundry Winery. These two wineries are quintessential Okanagan winery settings and shouldn’t be missed.
After passing through the heart of Penticton, you’ll enter onto the Naramata Bench, home to more than 15 wineries with amazing vistas and vineyards along the way. Consider having lunch at the Barrel Room Bistro at Hillside Estate Winery. With its high ceilings and cool shaded patio, it’s the perfect place to escape the midday sun. This is a great opportunity to try a wine the Okanagan is known for - a Riesling or perhaps Sauvignon Blanc.
It’s a time to tour as many wineries as you feel up to. They’re all located within minutes of each other. Overnight at Penticton or Oliver.
