Ruby Blues Winery, possibly the funkiest small boutique winery on the stunningly beautiful Naramata bench in the South Okanagan.

The winery and wines seems to reflect the personalities of the winery’s owners, Prudence and Beat Mahrer. Prudence and Beat where the original founders of Red Rooster winery. Red Rooster was a very successfully winery produce some fine wines. It attract the attention of Andrew Peller Ltd who purchased the winery. Red Rooster actually had two locations on the bench. They out grew their first location building the new Red Rooster winery we know today.

However there is a song:

She would never say where she came from
Yesterday don't matter if it's gone
While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No one knows, she comes and goes

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Don't question why she needs to be so free
She'll tell you it's the only way to be
She just can't be chained
To a life where nothing's gained
Or nothing's lost, at such a cost

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

"There's no time to lose, " I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time

The key line here is "Catch your dream before they fade away".

The Mahres could not resist the urge to remain in the winery business. So in 2007 they built their third winery, Ruby Blues Winery. Originally called Ruby Tuesday but due to copy-rites they had to change the name.
