We visited a number of superb wineries in the Summerland area yet were very disappointed with the 8th Generation Winery. Staff provided three varietals for people to sample and commented about how wonderful their other wines were yet declined to sample them. Instead they were telling people to come back the following day. The reason we do wine tours is... More

We come back every year and this year we enjoyed our wine tasting in their newly renovated tasting room. Left with my favorite Frizzante.

Right off the highway (easy to access). Very good wine. Service was friendly. Nice outdoor seating area to relax. Nicely arranged interior. Even had a "Kid's drawer" of toys out of the way to help entertain our toddler.

A must stop. on your way into Summerland Confidence 2015 is 90% Pinot Noir 10% Pinot Gris. A great fruity Prosecco type of wine, not tradititonal Champagne process. Just a fun wine to drink. The Cab-Merlot 2014 needs around a year still in the bottle. Going to be great.

The new wine shop is a good improvement from their old one and the Reisling is just as good as it was in the past. I was also surprised by their Cab Merlot which was quite good.

This is a regular stop for us when we travel through the area. The hostess is friendly and entertaining. She has a great personality and provides you with an unique perspective of the area. The sparkling wines are our favourites for special occasions and this time we purchased some other of their white and red wines.

8th Generation Vineyard was a lovely surprise. Yolanda was amazing, her knowledge and enthusiasm was wonderful. I will definitely keep this winery on my list as wineries to take my out of town guests. Their Reisling is excellent!
