Red Rooster Takes You on a Wine Adventure in BC's Okanagan Valley

Red Rooster Winery, established in 1990, is a gem in the crown of the Naramata Bench. After moving from its previous location in 2004 due to overwhelming popularity at its cellar door, the winery is continuing to build a steady following of wine lovers and novices alike. With their first vintage released in 1997 it is amazing to see what Red Rooster has done in just over a decade, bringing a wide selection of delicious wines to market that will suit a variety of tastes and budgets.

Just a few minutes outside Penticton in the Okanagan Valley, Red Rooster Winery commands sweeping views of both lake and mountain, all over a few vines of course! The cellar door is open year round and staff offer a selection of complementary tastings each day. From Riesling to Pint Noir, Red Rooster seem well on their way to mastering some of the greats, and with a prices starting at just $13.99 visitors are likely to leave with their own cellar a little more well-stocked. During summer guests can stay for a bite to eat, sharing an antipasto or cheese platter on the sprawling patio.

Red Rooster's site houses two buildings; one dedicated to the art itself (that's producing wine), and one dedicated to drinking the spoils of that art - the wine tasting room. Guests are readily welcomed into the room, adorned with local art that changes monthly every summer. Staff are more than happy to take guests right through the wine tasting process from start to finish, explaining and detailing the differences in colour, taste and production of the various wines on offer. Larger groups are often taken to the patio to sample their tastings overlooking the large grassy yard and green, leafy vines.
