This spring Summerhill Pyramid Winery introduced new dining options blending the best of their culinary experiences. Now you can savour wine-paired meals, expertly crafted by their banquet chef with skills polished in Michelin-rated kitchens. Feel free to dine in or take meals to-go where you can enjoy them later from the comfort of your own home.
The organic and biodynamic winery known to “work with nature to create beauty,” presents this initiative to extend the availability of the local and organic wine-paired cuisine featured in its onsite restaurant. Peruse the menu at summerhillmeals.com and treat yourself to a culinary adventure that will tantalize your taste buds and satisfy your cravings! Stock your freezer to wow your summer guests.
Many of the ingredients grow just below the Bistro patio in the half-acre chef’s garden planted in 2006 and lovingly overseen by Director of Biodynamics & Permaculture, Gabe Cipes, and his talented team. The kitchen reaps the benefits of seasonal heirloom vegetables, herbs and berries year-round by incorporating them into the menu fresh, cooked and preserved.
Canada’s Largest Organic Winery Has Many Firsts
In 2012, Summerhill Vineyard became the first B.C. vineyard to gain Demeter Biodynamic status. Biodynamic agriculture mandates a holistic approach to farming. It treats the farm as a single, self-sustaining ecosystem and engendering life and diversity in the soil, the ground cover, and in nature preserves on the farm. After a rigorous two-year accreditation process, Summerhill was designated a Certified B Corporation, a mark indicating people and planet are prioritized alongside profit. The first Canadian winery to gain certification, it’s one of only 26 worldwide.
Even the labels adorning Summerhill’s exquisite line of award-winning wines are printed on 100 per cent post-consumer waste recycled paper. Closures derive from the renewable resource of cork, plus office paper and menus are printed on tree-free paper made from the agricultural waste streams of sugar cane and wheat.
