Also walking distance from Hillside, or on your way home from town if you need another bottle or two... the owners Steve Christina are happy to share their love of wine and have created a very special winery and vineyard on Fosbery Road.
Haywire Winery at Okanagan Crush Pad

This winery is part of the Great Estates Okanagan! It has been operating for quite some time and has many great wines at a good price point. If you’re looking for something special, try the “Pipe” (great after dinner with dark chocolate), or the sparkling Shiraz (it’s very unique and delicious).

This is one of Summerland’s most scenic wineries. Great tasting room, fabulous lunches on the patio (or indoors if the weather is poor) and most importantly ‘great sparkling wines’. Don’t miss the spot, it’s amazing.

If you like to hike or walk take time to visit Giant’s Head. It is a local ‘must do’. You can park below and hike the trails, drive almost to the top and hike to the vie point, take a circle route... just be sure to stop and enjoy the views of the town on the way up and the lake on the way down!

You can access the trans Canada trail from many spots in Summerland. Visit the Summerland Tourist Information Center to find out which hike is best for you. My favourite is starting at the Rodeo Grounds and walking toward Summerland, you’ll pass many other trails on Conkle Mountain and you can explore, make it a climb, loop, what ever your preference.

Food scene
A favourite of locals; reasonable prices, good food, service and ambiance. Great outdoor dining in summer. Family friendly as well. If you don’t feel like cooking they will plate your take out and you return the dishes the next day (if you prefer they will use disposable containers as well).

15 minutes away in Penticton is a great restaurant perched over the lake. Good food, atmosphere, and a glorious setting make the Merganzer a great place to dine out. Be sure to make a reservation if it’s summer time!

Sightseeing
If you like history, or if you have children needing a fun afternoon away from the beach this is a great place to visit. In the summer they offer special dinner trains, robbery trains and all sorts of fun. It’s a great way to see another part of Summerlands vineyards and orchards by rail.

If you enjoy jams, jellies, or like to browse local handmade gifts, this is the place for you... they have everything from hand painted scarves, to pottery, and much more. They also have one of the best ice cream selections in town... it is located next to the Summerland Trestle (part of the original KVR trail).

Great place to visit if you’re into gardening. It’s an amazing garden established over decades. If you have a family it’s fun to let the children explore this vast garden and it’s network of trails. Many great opportunities for photographers as well.
