Ruby Blues Winery, Penticton

4.5
#1 of 21 in Wineries in Penticton
Under the often-blue British Columbian skies, Ruby Blues Winery stands out with its starkly contrasting citrus-yellow building. Since opening in 2008, the winery has strived to create a funky, fun atmosphere with its constant rock music soundtrack and collection of stiletto shoes for sale. The 1960s theme continues with the winery's old Volkswagon bus and prominence of daisies and murals throughout. The wines here are made of locally sourced grapes, yielding cabernet sauvignons, merlots, syrahs, chardonnay, pinot gris, and viogniers. As you sample the wines, browse through the quirky gift shop for local, whimsical art.

  • Amazing winery. Unlike other wineries in this area they don't ask for money at tastings but instead want a smile as payment. They really look after you and tell you about the wine personally, rather than having the visitors read it from a sheet. I like that they build this personal connection with you. Being a smaller winery they definitely make a very homey and lovely impression. The whole place looks so cute with art hanging on the walls and a Volkswagen bus standing at the entrance. On top of the wine, they also sell shoes for women and a few other articles and host events like small art auctions. I'm in love with this place!
  • Such a beautiful, unique place. The wine is delicious, the vibe is lovely and the staff are easy going and very knowledgeable. It's a must visit in Naramata!
  • One of my faves from Naramata! Their red blend Red Stiletto is best! Friendly staff and beautiful relaxing views!
  • Good wines and decor...but very rushed. As i was getting money from my husband to purchase a few things i was snapped at for blocking the entrance way by an employee. I told her nicely i was just grabbing cash to make a purchase and would be out of the entrance way in a moment. She rolled her eyes and walked away. I took my money elsewhere.
  • Another dog friendly winery!! Not as much to choose from as others but there were a few bottles we left with. Very homey, relaxed and friendly.

Where to stay in Penticton

Penticton's position between two lakes means that you're likely to enjoy waterfront views no matter where you stay. The town center, on the southern shore of Okanagan Lake, represents the most popular place to stay, with a host of motels and resorts offering views over the water. Head south down Skaha Lake Road--itself littered with accommodations--and you'll find quieter inns and motels offering vistas over the smaller but equally scenic Skaha Lake. Head just out of town along the east shore of Okanagan Lake and you can stay in a bed and breakfast or guesthouse among the region's wineries.
