Schell: Sumac Ridge: Sip, savour, celebrate

Sumac Ridge Estate Winery is an iconic brand in our wine country.

Sumac Ridge Estate Winery is an iconic brand in our wine country. Steeped in a long and rich history, they continue to shine as ambassadors of high quality wines and now, as a welcome beacon for food and wine enthusiasts seeking a true taste of wine country.

Sumac Ridge has introduced a fabulous new culinary experience for its guests. An expression of what makes our wine country so spectacular; they have combined their award winning wines with winery chef Ryan Fuller’s new concept of simple wine country cuisine and paired that with their amicable style.

At Sumac Ridge, you will be welcomed, doted on and educated in the most unpretentious, fun way possible.

Guests will leave feeling enlightened in their food and wine pairing knowledge, many leaving with that feeling of having an “a ha” moment (as Oprah would say) and that is exactly what Sumac’s passionate team of wine and foodies aim to gift its visitors with.

Sumac’s new UnEarth The Ridge Wine & Food Tasting Experience will find you seated at a harvest table with views over the Sumac vineyards.

In front of you will be a wine tasting line up of some of the wineries best—from bubbles to Port—they have it all.

The house-made charcuterie platter laid before you is designed to thrill every taste bud—with cheeses and meats to nuts and chocolate (all a celebration of local and Canada’s finest artisan products)—its purpose to both savour and experiment.

Your Sumac Ridge team of educators will lead you on your own sensory safari—encouraging you to be a renegade, ignore the rules and combine tastes that may not seem to pair.

Like 2006 Steller’s Jay Bubbles (recent Silver Medal winner at the International Effervescents du monde) with blue cheese—what a delicious surprise. Or a brie paired with the rich and seductive 2006 Pinnacle red blend—recently released.

Guests are welcome to order their own charcuterie platter or item from the new wine country casual menu to enjoy inside or on the patio. On Friday and Saturday nights the new Food and Wine By Design, three-course dinners are a must. Chef Fuller creates a seasonally focused menu each week that will showcase our region’s best local products paired with Sumac Ridge’s wines.
