Stoney Ridge Estate Winery
Located along the Beamsville Bench, the area where most of Canada’s premier grapes are grown. The Stoney Ridge Estate Winery produces some of the finest wines in the region since it was established in 1998. Some of the unique features at the Estate Winery are the state-of-the-art crush pad to accommodate any amount of grapes, and a specialized hopper to separate free-run juice from the grapes to produce ultra premium wines.
Stoney Ridge also owns two-20,000 Litre, thrity-10,000 Litre, and nine-5,000 Litre Tanks on property to separate the juice and the stems in the winemaking process. 250 to 300 premium French and American Oak Barrels are located in the cool and secluded barrel room of the estate winery to produce the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon Wines.
