More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Since opening in August 2000, Peninsula Ridge Estates Winery has been committed to producing the finest wines Niagara has to offer. The winery property encompasses 80 acres on the Niagara Escarpment, which is designated by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve. The vineyards are located on the Beamsville Bench, considered by many to be one of the premier grape growing regions in Canada.

They have planted 42 acres of vinifera grapes and also manage a neighbouring 43-acre vineyard, producing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. In addition, Peninsula Ridge has entered into long-term contracts with some of the best growers in Niagara to ensure the finest quality fruit for their wines.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
