About the Wine
At Sagewood, winemaking is an art, and every bottle tells a story. Their small, family-owned boutique vineyard takes pride in producing hand-crafted artisan wines. All their grapes are cultivated with care right here in their own vineyard, ensuring a true expression of Kamloops’ unique character. From the crisp notes of Riesling to the rich depth of Cabernet Franc, Sagewood’s diverse portfolio boasts wines with names inspired by their family—a personal touch that makes each sip even more special.
Their wine portfolio includes: Riesling, Kerner, Gewürztraminer Brut Style, Rosé, Gamay, Red blend, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Marechal Foch, Sparkling Wine, and a Dernier Foch desert/late harvest wine.

More to Experience
Sagewood Winery offers more than exceptional wines. Nestled within their grounds, a quaint outdoor picnic area welcomes visitors, serving as both an alfresco tasting space and a delightful refuge from the summer sun. Complete with a charming fish pond and a gentle rock waterfall, this oasis invites you to savour the moment. Pack your picnic, grab a chilled bottle from the tasting room, and unwind in the embrace of this wine family’s haven.
For the winery, sustainable winegrowing is a promise that stretches from soil to shelf. From the beginning, they’ve taken an organic approach to vineyard management. They embrace biodiversity, use drip irrigation to conserve water, and enrich the soil with natural mulching and composting practices. For Sagewood, sustainability isn’t just a buzzword; it’s a way of life that connects the soil to your glass.
