Taste & Swirl
Spend your afternoon sipping, snacking and savouring through four great wineries in The Benchlands.
Malivoire Wine Company
Innovation has been the key to Martin Malivoire's success since purchasing this prime vineyard on the Beamsville Bench in 1995. This first in Ontario gravity-flow winery is an elaborately recycled Quonset Hut. Winemaker Shiraz Mottiar focuses on excellence in cool-climate varietals including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Gris, as well as Rose and outstanding Gamay.
Featherstone Estate Winery
David Johnson and Louise Engel have poured their hearts into this 23-acre, eco-friendly estate tucked into the Niagara Escarpment. Riesling best captures the terroir, but winemaker David Johnson also crafts award-winning Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay.
Stoney Ridge Estate Winery
Owned by radio and television sports broadcasting personality Bob McCown, Stoney Ridge has charmed customers for over 30 years. They produce a wide range of premium VQA wines, as well as celebrity brands including The Tragically Hip and Glass Tiger. The experience is complemented by several unique offerings, including lush sprawling gardens, outdoor patios, and the Cheese Cellar boutique, which carries over 25 different kinds of local artisanal cheese. You'll enjoy a cheese charcuterie while sipping on your wines.

Set amongst 25 acres of estate vineyards, just west of St Catharines, 13th Street Winery creates exceptional wines that reflect the unique terroir of Niagara, specializing in hand-crafted sparkling wines, Gamay Noir, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling.
