Welcome to Sunnybrae Vineyards and Winery. Our wines are handcrafted with care from our single vineyard at the base of Bastion Mountain and the shores of  Shuswap Lake, where two Belgian draft horses once cultivated the farmland.

Crisp, Cool Climate Wines

SINGLE VINEYARD

Our Vineyard and Wines

Our vineyard is planted to 7.1 acres of grape vine with 3 white varieties of german origin (Siegerrebe, Ortega, Kerner), a French-American Red (Marechal Foch) used for the majority of our red wines and most recently, the infamous Pinot Noir.  As many visitors have commented, some of these varietals are less known than what you might find elsewhere. Why is this? We see a lower amount of “growing degree days” here than other parts of BC. The varieties we have planted generally ripen earlier (and can also withstand colder winter temperatures at dormancy), making them a great fit for the Shuswap region.

Sunnybrae Siegerrebe 2021

This is a deliciously aromatic and correct siegerrebe that comes from the Shuswap. It seems perfectly suited to the site and has been made with a gentle hand. It is full of roses and fresh litchi with a dusting of minerality and citrus. You can drink this solo or with lightly spiced appetizers. Good value.
