Okanagan Valley Wineries
Noble Ridge Vineyard & Winery is nestled in the northern tip of a pocket desert in the southern Okanagan Valley in beautiful British Columbia. The name of the vineyard is inspired by the ridge and by the noble grape varieties being grown within.
Our story goes back a long way. Over a hundred years and four generations in fact. From running cattle to fruit growing, our family's experience and love for agriculture has remained strong. We've learnt a few things along the way; paramount being conservation. Being stewards of the land which has provided for so many, for so long, is a task we take seriously. Our decision to grow our grapes following certified organic guidelines stemmed from this devotion. Originally a fruit orchard, the family decided to be done with the many pesticides and move forward in a new, and more green, direction. The first vines were planted in 2007 in conjunction with two other family properties. Together we grow Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Zweigelt, Riesling, and Pinot Noir. For years we sold our grapes to other local organic wine makers. Then, it dawned on us: we should make the stuff ourselves!?!? Our adventure in wine making is just beginning, but we are as dedicated to it as we are to the stewardship and care of the land we, and our children use.
Located in beautiful Summerland, BC, the winery overlooks Switchback Vineyard, an organic site that is also home to roaming sheep and chickens. Okanagan Crush Pad crafts wines that are symbolic of the region's unique high mountain/northern desert setting which has an intensely hot, short growing season with hallmark cool evenings. The winery is the first in Canada to extensively use concrete tanks and wines that are fermented and aged in concrete carry the Raised in Concrete™ designation. Visitors to the guest center, built right into the heart of the production facility, get a rare glance into the art of winemaking.
Painted Rock is singularly committed to the production of ultra premium Okanagan wines. Named for the pictographs that border the property, Painted Rock is situated on a spectacular bench that overlooks the shores of Skaha Lake in Penticton. Please join us in the pursuit of our passion and the creation of truly outstanding wines.
Over fifty years ago, a Hungarian immigrant named Andrew Peller opened a modest winery in Canada's west coast province of British Columbia. He situated his vineyards in the Okanagan Valley, where he planted the roots of a dream: a dream to offer Canadians world class wines that were proudly produced from Canadian grown grapes. He realized that dream and now fifty years later, Andrew Peller is considered a pioneer in the successful Canadian wine industry.
Phantom Creek Estates, located on the Black Sage Bench in the South Okanagan, represents the vision of the Bai family to build one of the leading wineries in Canada. From the historic Phantom Creek and Sundial Vineyards, Phantom Creek predominantly grows Bordeaux reds and Syrah. A new state of the art winery will be built on the Sundial Vineyard property beginning in June 2017 and is projected to open in Spring 2019. The first vintage, now maturing in barrel, was made in a temporary facility on the property in 2016.
