The highest elevation of the Niagara Escarpment at Beamer’s Point in Grimsby is a landmark for Kittling Ridge Estate Wines & Spirits. Tucked between the majestic backdrop of the Niagara Escarpment and the southern shores of Lake Ontario, at the Gateway to Niagara Wine Country, Kittling Ridge draws its name from the ridge that creates the excellent growing conditions surrounding the winery. Each spring, migrating hawks and eagles use the warm air currents that the ridge creates to gain altitude as they travel north.

Their circling, as they ride the thermals, is traditionally known as kittling. A special blend of tradition and innovation sets Kittling Ridge apart. As both a winery and distillery, Kittling Ridge offers visitors something they can’t see anywhere else in wine country. From the fruit processing area and fermentation cellars, to the copper pot and column still towers, and the oak barrel ageing cellars, Kittling Ridge is impressive.

Owner, winemaker and whisky maker John Hall, purchased the facility in 1992. Since then Kittling Ridge has won wide recognition for its innovative approach to wine making and distilling. A proud recipient of thousands of international awards, including being named 2008 Canadian Distillery of the year by Whisky Magazine, the company offers a diverse portfolio, including Forty Creek Barrel Select Whisky, Prince Igor Vodka and Icewine & Brandy.
At Kittling Ridge, the ultimate goal is to provide customers with a memorable experience and quality products. Hall states, "We want to create something unique in the world of wines & spirits, something that gives people a taste adventure."
