Michael Godel.  Really quite the natural and untouched cabernet franc, left to its own devices, allowed to speak of the place from where it came. Untreated, by organic and biodynamic means, raised on no new oak promises, mellowed, softened and extended to the world. Really delivers on the natural, naked, actual and real varietal magic, no oak encumbrance and joyously easy to drink. Not overtly structured and yet will glide through time for five years or more. Tasted October 2020.

Production

Appellation

BC VQA Okanagan Valley

Viticulture

89% Cabernet Franc and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon were partially fermented with naturalized yeasts in 10,000L of foudres, then allowed to mellow and harmonize in neutral oak barrels for 30 months.  Unfined and unfiltered.

Vinification

Our organically and biodynamically grown grapes are handled with love and attention, allowing them to ferment naturally to retain the highest levels of antioxidants.  The wines are finished in our precision Pyramid Cellar, a structure of stillness and harmony.

Producer Description

Summerhill Pyramid Winery features organic and biodynamic wine grown in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in Kelowna, British Columbia. Organic practices have been an integral part of Summerhill since the Kelowna vineyard was purchased by the Cipes family in 1986. Producing wine organically has a very meaningful benefit to the environment, and some scientists suggest that eating organic foods greatly benefits our health as well. Aside from these benefits, we believe that organic practices allow for the grapes in our vineyards to honestly express their surroundings, providing deep, terroir-driven qualities that are a true articulation of Okanagan terroir.
 

“Be a conduit and allow your vision, your dream to come through – and fortify it every day."
- STEPHEN CIPES, FOUNDER OF SUMMERHILL PYRAMID WINERY

The team at Summerhill Pyramid Winery seeks to share universal truth, love, and gratitude. The following set of seven guiding principles is a statement of our intentions. These seven principles inform the way we make wine, our business practices, and the way we interact with the world. We are all connected and it is our sincerest hope that we can enhance your life through extraordinary organic pyramid cellared wines, organic local cuisine, and by all of our interactions together.
