About Us
Welcome to Summerhill, where the art of winemaking harmoniously coexists with a profound commitment to nature and sustainability. Nestled in the heart of British Columbia's beautiful Okanagan Valley our 17-hectare vineyard stands as a testament to the transformative power of organic and biodynamic farming. As the proud custodians of the only Demeter certified biodynamic vineyard in the region, we embrace the philosophy of living in harmony with the land, nurturing biodiversity, and returning nourishment to the earth.

At Summerhill, our vineyard is not just a place of cultivation; it's a sanctuary for the delicate balance of ecosystems. With natural springs and wetlands on our property, we cherish and protect the diverse species that call this place home. This commitment to nature extends to our winemaking practices, where we let the grapes and the terroir speak for themselves, producing wines that are not only a delight to the senses but also a reflection of the land from which they are born.

We are now looking for a Purchasing Manager to join us on a journey that supports sustainability, tradition, and a profound connection to the earth in every sip of our wine. Please send your resume to
