In 1904, Henry Cecil Mallam bought the house and land surrounding it and moved in with his bride. Next to the Mallam House is the Makwala Kekuli, a replica of the sacred earth house that was used by indigenous people as a winter home. Today it is a winery venue owned by Stephen Cipes, winner of the prestigious Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and the man behind what is now known as "Canada's most visited winery".

    Incredible Venue

    We had our wedding ceremony at the Summerhill Estate House this past August. The team at Summerhill were so helpful in responding to emails and site visits leading up to our big day. The venue looked incredible on our wedding day and our guests loved the beautiful view from the estate house lawn. We had a cocktail hour with live music after our ceremony which our guests really enjoyed. Livi and her team were organized and made sure our wedding day was exactly as we had hoped. I was worried that we wouldn't have enough parking and that our guests would not be able to find the estate house but neither of those were an issue- staff and signs were all in place. It was a wonderful wedding venue-simply beautiful!

    Incredibly Beautiful

    We could not have asked for a more perfect venue to celebrate our Wedding. Not only does Summerhill offer the most picturesque backdrop for a ceremony, the staff and service was phenomenal. We received endless compliments about the food and the wine. I would recommend Summerhill to anyone wanting a perfect winery wedding.

    Incredible scenery with great support staff!

    When we wanted to do a wedding on a winery for over 120 people in the Kelowna area, there weren't that many options. Thankfully, Summerhill was one of them, as the views were breathtaking, the food was amazing, and the service was fantastic!

    The venue is absolutely gorgeous. It overlooks their vineyard which overlooks the lake and the mountains. They have a beautiful lawn for the ceremony, and the reception was in their hall which exudes a lot of warmth. They provided beautiful white chairs for the ceremony, the reception hall was air conditioned for the Okanagan summer heat, and the guests can also visit the vineyards as they please (apparently not all wineries do that when they have weddings!)

    Foodwise, they are fantastic. Every vendor we spoke with, when we mention Summerhill, they all mention the view and the food. And it did not disappoint! Great flavours and also very accommodating. Only thing though, is that they don't offer a tasting of the wedding food in advance (I'm guessing because of the volume of weddings they have?), but they do offer a tasting of their bistro's food. Luckily, they were able to cook something that was similar to what we'd have at the wedding, thus we were able to make some adjustments, which they did accordingly.

    Livi is the main event manager we worked with. She is extremely knowledgeable and she makes great suggestions when we didn't know what to do (ie. how much food for the cocktail hour, Cipes toast, etc.). She was also very accommodating to some of our requests (specifying the wine types, food adjustments). They do a LOT of events and weddings there, so it's important that you do read through the events order when they send it back to you (ie. food, etc.) thoroughly, as there were occasional small mistakes/typos, and each time we mention it, Livi updates it accordingly. With their volume, they can at times be a bit slow to respond when the wedding was far out, but Livi becomes extra extra attentive when it's crunch time. She attended to all our questions, and she was there the day of the wedding to ensure everything ran smoothly!

    Overall, we were so happy that we did our wedding there! All the guests LOVED the venue (as it was beautiful and warm), the food, and the service. Livi was a true professional and a pleasure to work with (accommodating and never losing her cool), and the cost was very reasonable for what you get!

    Stunning View, Amazing Food & Great Team

    We hosted our wedding reception at Summer Hill and it was everything we imagined and more! The wedding planning team was accommodating, professional, organized and made sure all the little details were taken care of so we could spend time with our guests. The view was stunning, overlooking the vineyard and lake. Almost all our guests were from out of town and I don’t think we could have had any more comments on how gorgeous the winery venue was. The food and wine was amazing, all high quality, local and delicious. We sabered sparkling wine and it was a hit with our guests and definitely recommend doing this. We can’t wait to come back and visit :)

    We chose to go with Summer Hill for our Wine and Champgane for our wedding, we also chose wedding favours from them. Great to deal with, the tasting was fun and unique. Super happy!
