Ridgepoint Wines

Ridgepoint Wines

Fifteen years ago, chartered accountant Mauro Scarsellone and his sister, Anna Gottardo, grasped Niagara’s potential and began planting nine hectares of prime vineyard in the Twenty Mile Bench appellation, much of it with Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Happily, he also planted an Italian variety called Nebbiolo, the red grape that makes Italy’s famous Barolo—it has since become Ridgepoint’s rare signature wine. Several white varieties round out the selection, with Riesling gathering accolades. A trip to the winery, and perhaps a light, casual Italian lunch at their on-site dining room and seasonal patio, is the best way to experience the wines.
