Burning Kiln Winery enjoys the long summers, warm lake breezes and the beautiful vistas of the waters of Long Point Bay. The vineyards and winery are located in Norfolk County, just minutes from Port Dover, Simcoe and the sandy beaches of Turkey Point and overlook the UNECSO designated Long Point World Biosphere Reserve. Our name recalls the dangers of early tobacco farming and marks the end of this traditional farming activity. From these ashes and traditions is reborn what the early explorers Dollier and Galinee discovered and wrote about in 1669 - great land, great wine and great adventure!
Experience awesome tastes imparted from the unique sand plain soils deposited by glaciers 10,000 years ago on which now thrive the noble European vinifera varietals including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Savagnin.
