20 Destination Wineries in the Okanagan Valley
This is another winery with history and gravitas behind its name. Positioned on a rock outcropping with a jaw-dropping view of Okanagan Mountain Park across the lake, Sumac Ridge was among the Okanagan’s pioneers in quality wine production.
Founder Harry McWatters became a legend in Canadian wine circles after dedicating Sumac Ridge to the production of high-quality vinifera grapes, and pushing the BC government to sponsor a massive replant for other wineries as well.
McWatters has moved on to other ventures, but his first winery continues the dedication to quality under the new owners.
