Noble Ridge Vineyard & Winery is nestled in the northern tip of a pocket desert in the southern Okanagan Valley in beautiful British Columbia. The prominent feature of the original 10-hectare (24-acre) property is an east-west ridge bisecting the vineyard, providing southern and northern facing slopes.

The name of the vineyard is inspired by the ridge and by the noble grape varieties being grown.

The southern slopes, with greater exposure to the sun, are ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties, which were initially planted in 1986. In 2001, Pinot Noir was also planted.

The northern slopes are planted with white varieties – Pinot Gris and Chardonnay – which thrive on the slightly cooler side of the ridge.
Vineyard Scene

A 4-hectare (10 acre) property adjoining Noble Ridge - "Noble Ridge North" - was purchased in July 2006 bringing the total acreage to 14-hectares (35 acres). 3 acres were planted to Chardonnay and 3 acres were planted to Merlot in 2000. One acre of Cabernet Sauvignon was planted in 2005. 250 plants of Malbec were planted in 2009.

The soils of the southern Okanagan Valley are glacial till: rocky sandy soils mixed with gravel and bands of clay. This soil mix causes the vines to work hard for nutrients and water, and results in smaller berries with intense flavours.

Noble Ridge's latitude parallels that of the Champagne, although the region receives less than twelve inches of rainfall a year. In fact, Noble Ridge lies at the northernmost tip of the only classified desert area in Canada. Restricted irrigation is used to control the growth and vigour of the vines.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
