Founded in 1999, the Flat Rock Cellars winery has quickly made a name for itself amongst Niagara Region Wineries. Located on the Jordan Bench, a stretch of sloping land west of St Catharines, approximately 25 minutes from our hotel, the winery prides itself both on a meticulous winemaking process, using low hand-picked yields in select vintages, and also on environmental sustainability. The estate’s white wines are regular award winners, and a variety of red vintages, pinot noir in particular, are also regularly available.
Large Winery Estate
The estate is a large, state-of-the-art facility. Visitors can walk straight into a basic half-hour tour that covers the vineyards and the 5-floor winemaking facility. Additional winery tour packages are available, and can include more exclusive tastings, a conversation with the founder of Flat Rock and a full inspection of the underground barrel cellars.
Active in the Niagara Region Wine Scene
Flat Rock will regularly participate in regional wine festivals and hosts its own events in between, like the Pick, Stomp and Taste wine experience in September. Avid fans can keep in touch with a Club on the Rock membership, which also provides quarterly shipments of specially selected blends.
