Noble Ridge Vineyard Winery has some wonderful wines and I personally recommended them as our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions that will make terrific gifts for family and friends on your gift giving list.
I am a big fan of the Okanagan Falls region and love so many wineries and their wines produced there. OK Falls is a very welcoming environment and everyone I’ve encountered has been so friendly and welcoming. Maybe that’s why they make great wines, wines you want to share and celebrate.
Not only do these wines make the best holiday gifts they are also our recommendation for your own holiday entertaining. These are “go to” wines that you will enjoy, and enjoy sharing with guests. They also make great host or hostess gifts! Your wine loving friends and family will be thrilled to receive a wine from Noble Ridge.
2018 Pinot Grigio
This stunningly voluptuous Grigio presents flavours of mandarin orange, asian pear and lemon merangue. The fruit is elevated by a refreshing and balanced acidity with a lingering finish. Pair with salads, anitpasti and Mediterranean dishes.
This citrus forward wine was perfect with the spicy dishes. It is fruity with good minerality. An easy drinking wine with or without food.
2017 Noble Meritage
The Meritage is dark, rich and delicious. The tastes of dark fruits are excellent, heavy dense with medium to heavier tannins and the perfect pairing for the game meats and flavourful vegetables.
2016 King’s Ransom Pinot Noir
2015 The One
“The One” sounds like a confident name. And this bubbly is so good it has earned the right to be confident.”
SILVER – 2019 National Wine Awards of Canada
SILVER – 2018 San Francisco International Wine Competition
Loved The One sparkling wine. It was tangy and is different than most in a good way. Flavourful with effervescence that pops on the nose.
This vintage Port Style wine displays aromas of fig, prunes and blackcurrant. The rich mouthfeel delivers a long and complex finish with flavours of black cherry and a subtle spiciness.
Estate Merlot grapes were destemmed and crushed with a 5 day cold soak prior to fermentation. Spirit was added to stop the fermentation about 2/3 to completion. The wine was pressed, allowed to settle then racking into neutral oak barrels. It was barrel aged for 36 months prior to bottling.
Wonderfully deep richness in The Crown. Barrel aged for three years. Merlot based it is tasted annually by Jim and Benoit to ensure the highest quality.

About Noble Ridge
Noble Ridge Vineyard Winery lays in the Okanagan Valley at the northern most tip of the only desert in Canada. The winery is named for the noble varieties of grapes grown and the ridge that divides the land on which they thrive. But this noble name is more than just a nod to the land. It’s a statement of values and a reminder of the hard work and dedication on which the winery was built.
Jim and Leslie D’Andrea began their winery in 2001. When they purchased the property it had only 3.5 acres of vines. Since then they have planted an additional 20 acres and have grown their dream into an award winning winery. Tending to vineyards and making the wines is all done by hand on site by a team of dedicated workers who strive every day to create exceptional wine that reflects its noble namesake. Guests are always welcome to enjoy the breathtaking views with a picnic overlooking Vaseaux Lake or to spend time exploring the vineyard with a tour.
