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.  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.

Jim and Leslie first met while attending Queens University in Kingston, Ontario. In the early 1980′s they moved to Calgary, Alberta where they made a home and raised their 3 children. Jim was a litigation partner with Bennett Jones LLP specializing in employment law and has authored 2 books on the subject. Leslie worked in hospital administration with a focus in health promotion and gerontology. Leslie's focus is now solely on Noble Ridge and Jim is now officially retired to life on the vineyard! 

The winery features breath taking views that over look Vaseaux Lake. You could not look for a better location. 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 and the noble grapes. It’s a statement of values. A goal. A reminder of the hard work and dedication on which the winery was built.

When visiting plan on a minimum of two hours. One hour for their Premium tasting experience which takes place in their VIP tasting lounge. It is a sit-down, 60 minute experience. Take another hour to enjoy the grounds and the view of Vaseaux Lake. Its a perfect place to relax with a glass of wine.

Benoit Gauthier is the Winemaker and Vineyard Manager at Noble Ridge Winery. Key Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon

Noted wine expert and author John Schreiner wrote: "Among Okanagan wineries, one of the most accomplished champions of Chardonnay is Noble Ridge Vineyard & Winery"

Responsible stewardship of our planet

Premium Quality Wines

"A portion of our tasting fees are given to these charities, along with the proceeds from other fundraising activities.  We also encouraged participation of our team in charitable and public service activities."

We also noted, that there are people who have become our advocates, displaying the exact qualities of nobility that we were aspiring to achieve for ourselves.  We have developed a new program that recognizes and celebrates those individuals who have exhibited the noble qualities and characteristics that we value.

Thus, was the initiation of The Round Table, Noble Knights and Dames.

The Round Table Noble Knights and Dames is a program where the wines are named after certain "noble Individuals"
