Silver Sage Winery is a family-owned and operated winery offering a selection of unique wines, each of which tells a story. Silver Sage is not only a spectacle for the palate, but also offers spectacular grounds to explore on your visit throughout the year. In spring and summer, the winery blooms with hundreds of roses in the gardens surrounding the winery. In winter, Silver Sage is transformed into a Christmas wonderland with one of the largest light displays in the South Okanagan.
Silver Sage founders Anna and Victor Manola emigrated to the Okanagan from Romania 32 years ago. Winemaking comes naturally to the Manola family, as they have four generations of winemaking experience behind them. Victor shared his father’s experience in grape growing, as back home he managed 25 hectares of vineyard. Anna’s father managed a 600-hectare vineyard and was its winemaker. From him, Anna learned the secrets of making a unique fruit wine that Silver Sage now shares with you.
With our experience in the physical and technical challenges of grape-growing and winemaking, we have absolute confidence in our products.
We always dreamed of owning a vineyard in the Okanagan Valley, and in 1996 the dream became a reality. We purchased 25 acres of land near Oliver, BC, and with a lot of hard work, love, and passion, it became an established vineyard. A tragic accident took Victor away from Anna on November 10, 2002, but Anna and the family have carried on to fulfill the family tradition and dream.
Our wines are produced from four varieties of premium grapes: Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Gewurztraminer, and Pinot Noir, as well as blueberries, raspberries, cherries, peaches, and apricots. Our unique fruit dessert wine, a first in Canada, is made from fresh Okanagan Valley and Fraser Valley grapes and fruit. Tested by four generations of winemakers, the recipe starts with the highest quality produce, which is then allowed to ferment naturally. The maceration time is varied in order to extract the perfect amount of natural flavour and colour. No chemicals or artificial flavours are added to this gorgeous wine.
All our wines are made with our own premium grapes. This way, we can control critical growth cycles as well as the wine-making process. We rely on nature rather than chemicals to give our wine its fresh fruitiness and lively acidity. The Okanagan Valley’s special microclimate allows us to grow top-quality red and white grapes. The reds are grown in a frost-free area, while some early whites thrive in the lower portion of the vineyard, which gets very cold in the fall and allows us to make our exclusive ice wine from partially frozen grapes. We love the variety and abundance we can produce for you.
