Summerhill Pyramid Winery (established 1991) is Canada's largest organic winery, BC's first Demeter biodynamic vineyard, and Canada's foremost producer of sparkling wine. Our winemaking philosophy is that organic and biodynamic provides the royal road to producing exceptionally beautiful, authentic, terroir-based wine that will connect you with the beautiful Okanagan Valley.
100% Organic Sangiovese
A unique Okanagan expression of a classic Italian variety. This Sangiovese is medium bodied with a fresh, luxurious mouthfeel. Notes of candied cherry, fresh blueberry, vanilla cola and baking spices carry through the palate, while firm tannins and a refreshing burst of acidity leave your mouth watering for the next sip!
Organic Sangiovese grapes were hand harvested from Spadefoot Toad Vineyard in Oliver, BC. These vines are lovingly managed by master organic grower Ron Firman, who tends his small acreage like a garden to create this distinct, rare wine. Ron carefully applies compost to each individual vine and breeds endangered spadefoot toads in his irrigation channels for natural pest control.
The wine fermented in small lots with daily hand cap management. It aged for thirty-seven months in a combination of new and neutral French oak before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Delicious with classic Italian fare like Neapolitan-style pizza with prosciutto and olives.
