Add fun and flavour to brighten the end of your 2020
After an abrupt and unexpected late October snowfall, we have officially entered a new season in the Okanagan and at the winery. This November and December is a fantastic time to visit Summerhill. Our team has come up with a bunch of creative and delicious promotions and programs to safely and responsibly tempt you, adding fun and flavour to brighten the end of your 2020.
First let's talk about our Wine Shop:
On Sundays, join Winery Sommelier Susan Watkins for an amazing sensory experience. Explore food & wine pairing and dive deeply into Summerhill's organic & biodynamic portfolio in an intimate guided conversation. Susan, formerly wine director at Vancouver's fabulous The Mackenzie Room fine dining restaurant, is deeply knowledgable and at the same time totally approachable. With a limit of only eight people per session (6 per group max), this is an amazing opportunity to be inspired, whether you are curious about the fascinating world of wine, already an expert, or anywhere in between. You can find more information and book your seats here.
Every Friday and Saturday this winter, we open all our expensive bottles and offer Gray Label tastings of our small lot, premium wines. The weekend is a great time to visit! This tasting is complementary with purchase of premium wine, or you are welcome to experience these rare, special vintages for $20 per person.
Meanwhile our socially distanced tasting room is open daily. No need to reserve, just drop in to taste our delicious organic wine. The tasting is complimentary with purchase, or $10 per person if you just want to come in for the experience.
And starting November 14, just in time for Christmas shopping, our Gallery Tasting Room will transform into the Fabulous Finds Pop-up Artisan Shop & Art Gallery! In lieu of a craft fare, which can't happen this year due to COVID, the organizers have arranged a consigment store with a curated list of super high quality crafters and artists to take place at Summerhill. We're really excited to provide this opportunity to shop local for the holidays and support our local economy!
And here's what's happening in our restaurant:
We know how important it is to be conscientious and safe when dining out, and we know there is a range of feelings and comfort levels. We want to offer you the opportunity to treat yourself and to celebrate comfortably and safely. That's why we have committed to keeping our patio open all winter long this year! We're turning on the heaters and blocking the wind. Wear a cozy sweater and we'll make sure you are comfortable.
Also, now that we're through the tourist season, our Local's Special theme nights are back! Here's the weekly schedule of special offers:
- Wednesday is Date Night / Pizza night! This is for dine in or take out service.
- Thursday is Fondue Night! This decadent and sumptuous special service pairs amazingly well with our aromatic white wines, which are sold in the restaurant at wine shop prices on Fondue Night.
- Friday and Saturday afternoon we offer Sparkling High Tea! Plus there is a High Tea Travel Club. This special service is by reservation only. Find out more and book your seats here.
- Happy Hour is 3 - 5 pm Tuesday - Sunday
And if you feel more comfortable staying home, we are pleased to announce the return of our Family Dinners To Go, Frozen Dinners, and organic grocery service, available for curbside pickup when ordered from our website here (click the link and scroll down).
Please note that the restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner Tuesday thru Saturday, and for lunch only on Sundays. We will be closed all day Monday, and for dinner on Sunday.
