Make Wine, Not War
Welcome to Ruby Blues Winery, the funkiest, small boutique winery in the South Okanagan. Our wines are produced from vineyards on the stunningly beautiful Naramata Bench, where the terroir imparts that unique quality specific to our region.
We are the funkiest boutique winery on the stunningly beautiful Naramata bench in the South Okanagan. All our wines are produced from Okanagan-grown grapes, predominately from vineyards on the Naramata bench, where the terroir imparts that unique quality specific to our region.
In 2008 the winery opened after our owners, Prudence and Beat, sold Red Rooster Winery. Red Rooster had become a big winery. They wanted to get away from all the paperwork and get back in touch with the vines, wines, and guests.
Ruby Blues quickly became popular with visitors to the Naramata Bench. Our vibe as a fun winery with fine wine, great rock and roll music in the vineyard, and a selection of local artisan products was a hit from day one.
We work hard to stay small.
All of our wines are produced predominately from vineyards on the Naramata Bench where the terroir imparts that unique quality specific to our region. Everyone who works with the grapes at Ruby Blues is guided to speak to the vines with love and to ensure that music is played in the vineyard. We believe all living things deserve to be treated with love, including our vines.
Our Commune Series of wines are made from grapes that we source from our own vineyards and from vineyards of friends and neighbours along the Naramata Bench. The grapes from these different origins are now brought together as wine in the bottle. They all live in peace and harmony, just like the communes of the sixties. As we like to say, make wine, not war!
