Crafting Exceptional Wines

The extraordinary grapes at Kirby Estate are a testament to the passionate and skilled team we are privileged to work alongside, each member contributing to the cultivation of unparalleled excellence.


Their boutique vineyard and newly minted farm winery has become their passion project to share with others. Under their stewardship, they have partnered with the best industry professionals with expertise in vineyard management and artisanal wine making resulting in remarkably high quality, small-lot, single-vineyard merlot, chardonnay, and soon to be sparkling wines.  They are inspired by other quality wine makers who also seek to release the magic in their terroir grown grapes which showcase the authentic rich flavours of Niagara Lakeshore’s award winning wines.

‍Acres of vines with mature red and white vinifera varieties stood proudly like soldiers in the fertile soils, as if to challenge the Kirbys in a call to stewardship. They embraced the challenge with optimism and a hint of trepidation and have journeyed down the road less travelled becoming grape growers and vignerons – living the dream, truly blessed.
