Ridge Road Estate Winery
Founded in 2009 on a farm that has been in the family for over 100 years, Ridge Road Estate Winery is situated on the edge of the Niagara Escarpment in Stoney Creek. It is one of the first wineries encountered when entering the Niagara wine country from the west. Award-winning winemaker Sean Douglas and interior designer Jayne Douglas established the vineyard in 1994. After many years of supplying grapes and juice to wineries and amateur winemakers they introduced their first vintage of wines and opened the doors of their casually elegant tasting room. The winery offers a range of red, white, rose and sparkling wines including a unique blend that features the Traminette grape. In the summer of 2011, they will be opening a walking trail that will allow visitors to take in the natural beauty of the property and the views from the Escarpment. The winery also produces a gourmet culinary product called Verjus that is made from unfermented vinifera grapes.
