AUGUST 27-30 2017 | THE LODGE AT ENGLEFIELD BAY
Westcoast Resorts is proud to partner with Summerhill Pyramid Winery and winemaker Eric von Krosigk for our Couples and Winemakers trip at Englefield Bay this season.
Summerhill Pyramid Winery is a pioneering Okanagan Valley winery established in 1991. Owned and operated by the Cipes family, the winery has been a leader in organics, converting their own vineyard holdings to organic status shortly after the property was acquired in 1986, and since, has helped to convert and support more than 200 acres of Okanagan vineyards to certified organic status. The home vineyard in Kelowna is, as of 2012, BC’s first Demeter certified bio-dyamic vineyard.
