We hope that everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend and had a chance to pause and reflect upon the good things in each of our lives. Here at Noble Ridge, we continue to be so grateful for the support and love all of you have extended to us throughout this crazy and unusual year. Thank you.
For the past 2 years, we have chosen to share our good fortune with 4 organizations that we believe deserve ours and your support – West Coast Kids Foundation, Vaseux Lake Stewardship Associaton, South Okanagan Women In Need Society and the South Skaha Housing Society. To learn more about these 4 Noble Causes, please go to www.nobleridge.com and see how you can support them and/or get involved too.
Harvest continues in the Vineyard. Benoit and his team have been working diligently, dodging Mother Nature’s heavy winds, rain and hail and enjoying her sunshine. To date, the Pinot Gris, most of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and some of our Merlot are safe in the tank. The rest of the Merlot and our Cabernet Sauvignon will come in later this month.
“What stands out in this vintage so far is the most amazing month of September. It really helped to bring out the fruit and flavour development. I’m a happy guy!” Benoit Gauthier, Winemaker. Oct 2020.
