Coffin Ridge Vineyard and Winery

Coffin RidgeCoffin Ridge

Coffin Ridge Vineyard and Winery is a family-run business and has been growing grapes in Meaford since 1999. The mineral-rich heavy soil and moderate microclimate have proven very well-suited to grape growing, and since beginning commercial production in 2006 the winery has almost doubled its output each year. Coffin Ridge now grows several different varieties of grape on its 25 acres of vineyard.

Coffin Ridge has been a significant boost to the area’s already vibrant tourism and cottage industry.

As Manager and Chief Operating Officer if Coffin Ridge, Mike Todd explains:

“Meaford is a great destination both for tourists and for businesses as well as a beautiful place to live, surrounded by orchards, lush farms and now four beautiful vineyards.”

“The community of Meaford has consistently offered their support to our business. Meaford’s official plan embraces the Agri-Tourism aspect of farming as a vital part of community growth. This progressive vision makes Meaford a great place to grow a business. With fifteen thousand visitors to the winery last year and the expectation of double that this year, we are grateful for the support.”

Now looking to expand to markets beyond Meaford, you may soon see the Coffin Ridge label in LCBOs across Ontario.

“We at Coffin Ridge have never regretted our decision to plant our business in the fertile soil of the community of Meaford.”(Mike Todd, Manager and COO of Coffin Ridge Vineyard and Winery)
