#ShiptoSip with Noble Ridge Vineyard Winery

If you’re like me you are lamenting the cancellation of our favourite wine tasting events. I never miss the Okanagan Falls New Spring Release tasting. Hands down the best way to try all the wonderful wines that this Sub GI region has to offer.

Instead of worrying about what we can’t change, how about we do something positive that is both for ourselves and supportive of the BC Wine Industry.

Today’s #ShiptoSip comes to you from Noble Ridge. Just some of our #FavouriteThings! I know you love them too so here is what we suggest for ordering online.

Noble Ridge Vineyard Winery

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.

We believe that we are all looking to create unique, memorable, life experiences. We also believe that enjoying premium quality wine enhances our unique, memorable life experiences. We grow premium, quality wine and wine experiences.

We look forward to celebrating with you once this situation is resolved!

Jim and Leslie D’Andrea
