Cabernet Merlot

The Burnt Ship Bay Cabernet Merlot is a ripe and fruit forward Merlot from our Niagara vineyards.

This classic Cabernet Merlot blend is loaded with ripe raspberry and cherry characteristics. 
A delicious fruit forward, nicely balanced wine with soft and well integrated black cherry, cassis and hints of licorice. 
Pair this wine with your favourite grilled and roasted meats: beef, lamb, venison and game are all great matches with this easy going red wine. Big enough mouth feel to match a rare steak and gentle enough on the tannins to handle grilled vegetables.

Pinot Grigio

You'll love our Pinot Grigio, an Intervin Gold Medal winner which definitely raises the bar for Niagara Pinot Grigio!

"This Pinot Grigio is an absolute joy to drink! The pretty bouquet of, peach, honey, banana and flowers give way to fresh apple, mineral and spice on the refreshing palate. Put a good chill to it and enjoy this summer/autumn on the patio or with grilled fish drizzled topped with lemon."

About us

Company details

Burnt Ship Bay Winery is named after a little historic bay that lies in the heart of the mighty Niagara River that flows along the Peninsula where our grapes grow.

In 1759, during the Seven Years’ War this little known bay became the final resting place for some treasure laden French ships. Well into the 19th century their burnt hulls were still visible, but despite attempts by fortune hunters the treasure remains lost beneath the river’s tumultuous waters.

The following was reported on the incident at Burnt Ship Bay by one of the newspapers in 1835:

RELICS OF THE OLDEN TIME. –[…]the borders of the Niagara river near the Falls were the theater of deep and absorbing interest in the old French war of 1760. During or about the year 1753, the French, who were then masters of Canada, built four or five war vessels at or near Navy Island in the Niagara, about two miles above the Falls. These were probably the first vessels ever built on the waters of the Upper Lakes. Fearful that they would fall into the hands of the British, two of the vessels, two or three years after they were built, during a hard press of the hostile troops, were taken by the French into Burnt Ship Bay, now a small cove lying on the west side of the lower end of Grand Island, and there abandoned and burnt. There they have since laid, sunk on the bottom in about twelve feet water, occasionally exposing, in low water, their timber heads, to the present day. They have attracted little notice, having been nearly forgotten in the antiquity of their history. […]

We chat about searching for treasures at Burnt Ship Bay over a glass of wine now and then, but then we open another bottle and the conversation goes back to grape growing and crafting great wines.
