Sightseeing Attractions


Wine tour 2 summerland to kelowna l.jpg

2. Summerland to Kelowna

Wine Tour (2. Summerland to Kelowna)

  • This route takes you along the western side of Okanagan Lake offering equally spectacular views from a different perspective. From this side of the lake one can see the lay of the vineyards along the bench of Naramata Rd. and beyond that the unspoiled beauty of Okanagan Lake Park. Plan for a longer day out as the distance to travel is further, or add the Summerland portion to your Naramata trip and reserve the rest for another day. If you plan to do only the Summerland Wineries cycling is an option, however, it is on the road and beware of Summerland Hill, can you say Iron man.

  • Scherzinger Vineyards owned by Ron & Cher Watkins. Overlooking the Historic Kettle SteamRailway, you may luck out and see it steam by while there taking in the views and tasting their organically produced wines. Try their specialty blush, Sweet Caroline, it’s a refreshing sipper for the summer.

  • Thornhaven Estates a beautiful Santa Fe style building offering a panorama of the lake. The Fraser’s invite you to enjoy their views and wine out on their sun-deck.

  • Sumac Ridge Estate Winery takes pride in being BC premier Estate Winery, founded in 1979 by McWatters. Their tasting room and restaurant, Cellar Door Bistro, is open for brunch, lunch and dinner. Take part in an intimate tasting in their new Connoisseur Tasting Room for a small fee, or plan on staying for one of their gourmet Winemaker Style Dinners.

  • Down the road in Peachland we come to Hainle Vineyards where winemaker Tilman Hainle produces organic wines with the new owners, the Huber Family. Enjoy lunch or dinner at the Amphora Bistro, the first licensed winery bistro in BC, and take in a different view of the lake from above Peachland.

  • Mission Hill Family Estate Winery is located in West Bank. Sitting high above the lake one can not miss the tower with its imported bell.

  • The Stewart Family invites you to their vineyard at Quails Gate Estate Winery since 1956, making it one of the oldest producing vineyards in the Okanagan Valley. Enjoy a tasting in the historic home of the Allison Family (1870’s), true pioneers in this valley. Old Vines Patio offers panoramic views of the lake and vineyard while enjoying either lunchor dinner.

  • Mt. Boucherie Estate Winery is owned by the Gidda since 1976.

  • Slamka Cellars Winery, owned by Pete Slamka sits at the foot of Mt. Boucherie. While there try his five wine blend, Tapestry, a unique blend and flavour that you will not find elsewhere.

  • Summerhill Estate Winery enjoys the distinction of being Canada’s largest certified organic vineyard with stunning 40 km views of the lake. Open for both lunch and dinner at the Summerhill Sunset Veranda, come a little early to partake in a free champagne making seminar.

  • Enjoy the organically grown, non-oaked, Swiss style varietal wines at St. Hubertus Vineyard. If you prefer wines made in oak, try their other label Oak Bay.

  • Cedar Creek Estate Winery overlooksg Okanagan Lake on the eastern side of Kelowna. After visiting the tasting room enjoy a glass of wine with some tapas on their Vineyard Terrace, the view is wonderful.

  • Pinot Reach Cellars is steeped in history. Acquired in the 1930’s by the Dulik Family, it has remained in the family since and is now operated by Susan Dulik. The original 50-acre vineyard is one of the first original plantings in the Okanagan Valley and to this day still retains some of its original vines. With the opening of Pinot Reach, Susan has taken the final steps in carrying on the family tradition. Bring along a picnic and enjoy the views, you may even luck out and happen upon one of their live music events.
