DEDICATED TO THE PASSION OF WINEMAKING
Summerland Family run and owned winery since 2001. Elevated on the slopes of Little Giant’s Head Mountain, a rocky, pine-covered crest, Thornhaven is fronted by its flourishing vineyards and cloaked in its quiet surroundings. The spectacular views from our courtyard patio overlook the picturesque landscape of Summerland’s orchard-laden valley floor and distant rolling mountains. To the east lie striking panoramas of sparkling Okanagan Lake, the bordering forested hills, and the fertile emerald benchlands of neighbouring communities. We craft wines that are appreciated by novices and connoisseurs alike. Our approach to winemaking, careful and passionate, exposes the natural qualities and intricate characteristics of the fruit that produces our elegant vintages.
Stainless steel tanks, French and American Oak barrels are used to create our distinctive handcrafted red and white wines. Our Cellar Master, Jason Fraser, and wine making consultant, Christine Leroux, together create some of the finest award-winning wines around.
Every aspect of the wine creation is overseen by the Fraser family, from the delicate art of the growing stages right through to the final stages of the finished product. Varietals include Pinot Muenier, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Orange Muscat, Gamay, Riesling, and Pinot Blanc. Come and join us for complimentary wine tastings and stay to have a picnic lunch on our patio. Our wine shop is open on weekdays and weekends from 10am-5pm during our regular season. Thornhaven wines are also available for purchase at your local VQA, BCLDB, and privately owned liquor stores.
