Rob Summers

Senior Winemaker

Hailing from the Niagara region, it seems natural that Rob Summers figures large in the Canadian wine industry. After acquiring an Honours Degree in Food Science (BSc, Hons) from the University of Guelph he worked at Hillebrand Estates, Henry of Pelham, Cave Spring Cellars, and Peller Estates. While at Peller, Rob directed VQA winemaking for two vintages in the Okanagan where he saw the vast potential that the south Okanagan Valley held, and was inspired to relocate his family to Osoyoos. He joined the team at Hester Creek Estate Winery in 2006 and his signature winemaking style has since gained accolades from his fellow winemakers and seasoned wine experts alike.
