Ruby Blues Winery

Keeping things fun and funky on the Bench since 2008, Ruby Blues likes to show guests a good time. And it clearly works, with Ruby Blues being one of the most visited wineries in the area.

Everyone seems to know, or at least has noticed, the colourful VW Westfalia van parked outside the winery. The van is not the only draw, however, with the winery courtyard featuring beautiful views of Okanagan Lake and the surrounding vineyards.

The owners previously built and established Red Rooster Winery (located just across the road) and then retired before realising that they missed the Okanagan wine industry.

Ruby Blues’ wine is produced exclusively from grapes from the Naramata Bench, resulting in fruit-forward wines. The winery is best known for its quaffable red and white Stiletto blends. Pricing is approachable.

Wine tastings are held both inside the wine shop and outside, under the covered crush pad. There are a few tables but most tastings are held around wine barrels. Tastings last around 20 to 30 minutes.
