Sumac Ridge Estate Winery, established in the quaint town of Summerland, BC was founded by Harry McWatters, a leader in the Canadian wine industry. Sumac Ridge is dedicated to producing premium wines that celebrate the essence of BC’s Okanagan Valley. Senior Winemaker, Mark Wendenburg, one of the Okanagan's most awarded winemakers, has led the winemaking team at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery since 1992. Mark is dedicated to producing quality vinifera wines and outstanding premium blends. The McWatters family and their team have created one of the most renowned winery experiences in Canada and, over the years, have been recognized for their passion, innovation and commitment to quality. The winery produces a wide range of products with signature wines including Gewurztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Meritage and Sparkling. The wines are created with food in mind, and to fit all occasions and celebrations.
