Grapes on a vine (Andrea Johnson photo)
Summerland's Bottleneck Drive wineries are fast developing a distinct reputation among wineries of the Okanagan.
Grapes grown in this area benefit from rich volcanic debris blasted from a pre-historic volcano that exploded, leaving Giant's Head Mountain as a fragmentary reminder of the cataclysm.
The last ice age added fertile clay silt to the mix, deposited in a vast glacial melt lake and exposed as the waters receded. The land that has been so successful in cultivating soft fruits like peaches and cherries, is proving equally adept at producing grapes for fine wines. And the soft fruits aren't forgotten as one local grower is producing award-winning fruit wines.
Summerland wines exhibit the characteristics of the Okanagan, each with its own special voice. Sample the internationally-recognized reds, whites, rosés, sparkling wines and icewines of these small family wineries.
