A Perfect Afternoon at Coffin Ridge

John and I finally had a chance last month to visit the Coffin Ridge Winery and Vineyard. It’s a pleasant country drive west of the Georgian Triangle where they are located between Meaford and Owen Sound, north off Highway 26 on Concession 2.

This interesting little boutique winery and vineyard started in 1999 when owners Neil and Gwen Lamont experimented with planting their first rows of cold climate grapes.  The results were excellent and since then, the vineyard has grown and been carefully tended using sustainable viticultural methods with no insecticide use.  The resulting grapes have yielded award winning wines in recent years.

A visit to Coffin Ridge is a perfect way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon this fall.  We first enjoyed a wine tasting with a flight of three wines.  We selected our favourites and then each ordered a glass along with an artisanal cheese plate.  We sat outside overlooking the valley while enjoying the exquisite meld of flavours presented and I couldn’t help but think, it just doesn’t get better than this!
