    Puddicombe Farms Distillery & Winery

    Puddicombe Farms | Hard Cider Distillery

    Puddicombe Farms is quite the institution here in the Niagara Benchand area. Puddicombes is a family owned and operated working farm at over 213 years old. Their story began in 1797 as cattle farmers. In the early 1900's Puddicombes became fruit farmers, planting their first vineyard in 1940. Today they are a working farm of approximately 300 acres of fruit. To keep up with changing times owner Murray Puddicombe, along with a wine master Jim Warren, formed a partnership and Stoney Ridge Winery was brought to life. Also born at the same time was a general store, bake shop, and cafe. Introduced a few years later was an agricultural train and a pick-your-own-fruit operation.

    While visiting Puddicombe's Farm our group will enjoy complimentary tastings of Sir Isaac's Pear Cider, Peach Cider and Apple Cider. This it the only place in the Niagara Benchland to enjoy locally produced hard ciders. While visiting, poke around their retail store and sprawling property.

    Vienie Estates Distillery & Winery

    Vieni Estates| Distillery & Winery

    The founder of Vieni Estates brings his passion for grappa & brandi from Italy and combines it with his love for this distinctly Canadian wine region, and particularly the unique attributes of the rolling hills of the Vinemount Ridge. Master winemaker Mauro Salvador takes the best of the many varietals grown on the estate to produce a broad and compelling range of still wines, ice wines and sparkling wines crafted in the Charmat method (Metodo Italiano). Each offering is crafted to reflect the best of the terroir, the varietal, and the winemaker's skills.

    Upon your arrival your group will be treated to a short tour of their distillery followed by free tastings of grappa, brandi and wines. You will not find any of their products on shelf at your local LCBO, so if you find anything you like make sure you bring home a bottle...or two.
