Coffin Ridge Winery
Our tasting bar is currently open daily from 12 until 5pm. Vintners’ Plates are available all winter long until 4pm daily.
Overlooking the crystal blue water of Georgian Bay, in the shadow of the Niagara Escarpment sits Grey County’s first winery, Coffin Ridge. A boutique winery by design, Coffin Ridge produces high quality, small batch wine made primarily from grapes grown from hand planted, hand picked Grey County grapes. Coffin Ridge’s three signature wines: Into The Light White, Back From The Dead Red and Resurrection Rose express the Grey County terroir exquisitely.
Start your day at Coffin Ridge with a wine tasting led by our knowledgeable staff. From there you can retreat to the deck for a glass of wine and our vintner’s plate made up of local artisanal breads and cheeses which have been specifically paired with the glass of wine you are drinking. Relax, listen to music and enjoy the Coffin Ridge experience.

Georgian Hills Vineyards
Our vision is to establish a sustainable winery and vineyards in Beaver Valley, with a long-term goal to develop a successful wine industry in the Georgian Bay region.
Each of the founding partners brings significant experience to the Georgian Hills team – apple farming, grape growing, viticulture management, wine making, wine education, wine sales and marketing.
Since 1998, we have been conducting tests to gain an understanding of the best potential vineyard sites, viticulture methods and grape varieties for the cool climate region of Georgian Bay.
In 2004 we planted and established a 5-acre commercial vineyard at Ardiel Acres on the west side of Beaver Valley. In 2007, we planted another 12 acres at Victoria Corners, the home site for Georgian Hills vineyards and winery. In total, the two sites now produce over 30 tons of grapes, made up of European Vinifera varieties – Riesling, Chardonnay, Gamay Noir, Pinot Noir, as well as popular French American Hybrids such as Seyval Blanc, Vidal Blanc, Maréchal Foch and Baco Noir.
In 2007 the old barn on the property was upgraded to meet wine making standards, including temperature controlled floors. As of the 2009 fall vintage we have been making wine at the vineyard site.
