Summerland has a diverse history of grape growing, wine making and wineries for more than 35 years. Now Summerland’s Bottleneck Drive wineries are rapidly developing a strong reputation among Okanagan Valley wineries. Summerland’s grape varietals benefit from the fertile ice clay and rich volcanic soil. The last ice age added clay silt from a glacial lake, while an erupting volcano thousands of years ago left behind rich fertile soil and what is known today as the the Giants Head Mountain.
Knowledgable staff, friendly owners and talented wine makers add to the flavour of theses high-end award winning wines. The aromas and flavours in Summerland wines are a true reminiscent of the Okanagan Valley. Summerland has a wine tour for everyone.
