Stoney Ridge Estate Winery
One of Niagara's pioneering boutique wineries turns 25 this year, with talented winemaker Gordon Robert and founder Jim Warren crafting rich, award-winning wines from maturing vineyards in three appellations. They produce a wide range of VQA whites and reds including the ever-popular Warren Classic series and the new Excellence line debuting this year. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Bordeaux reds and aromatic whites are specialties, as is the Cuvee Award-winning Gewurztraminer Icewine. A visit to the winery includes Niagara's only formal wine garden, a Wireless Garden Terrace, a new IPAD tasting bar (launching summer 2011) and an outstanding artisanal cheese boutique.
