Summerhill Pyramid Winery is a pioneering Okanagan Valley winery established in 1991. Owned and operated by the Cipes family, the winery has been a leader in organics since its inception. The philosophy of winemaking is that organic and biodynamic grapes, grown in harmony with the ecosystem, is the starting point for authentic, expressive, terroir-driven wines. The portfolio of wines has earned Summerhill the title of ‘Canadian Wine Producer of the Year’ from the IWSC in London, England (2009), and Summerhill’s sparkling wines have garnered much international acclaim, including gold medals from France (Chardonnay du Monde, 2000, Effervescents du Monde, 2013) and a trophy from England (IWSC, 2010).
The winery is home to the Sunset Organic Bistro, featuring seasonal Okanagan wine paired cuisine served in a rustic, relaxed atmosphere with a breathtaking view of valley, lake, and vineyards.
