Blair Gillingham Grew up in Victoria, BC, but spent many summers in the Thompson region. So in 2001 he decided to make Penticton home when his sister invited him to work a harvest in Summerland. After this, he knew being a winemaker and traveling the world was in his future. Since then Blair's experience has covered the Okanagan Valley, Australia, New Zealand, and two years in Kamptal, Austria. His biggest challenges were to work 3 harvests in one calendar year in two different continents, and learning different languages in Europe for work and enjoyment. Now he's happy to continue learning and working close to home at Ruby Blues Winery.

April 2021 COVID-19 Update:

Unfortunately, we have decided to close the tasting bars at Ruby Blues. We were excited to kick off the season this Easter offering outdoor COVID-conscious tastings with safety being our top priority. However, in light of current trends we feel the best we can do for the safety of our team and patrons is to end tastings for the foreseeable future. Please know this is us exercising an abundance of caution and only temporary, we look forward to better and brighter days in the future where we can host you all once again. When that happens, we will be sure to update you here so stay tuned.


In the meantime, our wine shop will remain open for purchases only and with contactless pickup available. If you are outside Penticton and looking to get your Ruby Blues fix, we offer delivery across Canada. To place an order simply visit our website, or contact us at the number or email listed above.

Stay safe out there.
