Summerhill Pyramid Winery
Types of Wines
Summerhill Pyramid Winery grows and makes wine organically and biodynamically. The Cipes family bought Summerhill Vineyard in 1986, and moved to Kelowna from New York the following year. At that time Summerhill, along with much of the valley’s vineyards, was planted with table grapes and hybrid wine grapes. The Cipes’ new vineyard also had one experimental block of Riesling planted in the 1970s.
Almost as soon as the Cipes family arrived, the vineyard was transitioned to organic maintenance and replanted with European vinifera winemaking grapes imported from France and Germany.
They are known for their Icewine!
Summerhill built a one-eighth precise replica of the Great Pyramid in which they age their wine and stage special events.
