Burning Kiln winery, in a word, spells adventure! A unique and delectable adventure for the palate, adopting and adapting slightly, the ancient “appassimento” method in winemaking.
The technique of drying the grapes on mats or slated crates is utilized at Burning Kiln, however, modified slightly with a twist. The land on which the vineyards are planted was formerly used to farm tobacco, and the tobacco drying kilns of the past are now being used to dry the grapes. Award winning winemaker Andrzej Lipinski formerly of several high profile, winning wineries including Legends, Megalomaniac, Foreign Affair and Organized Crime has this to say”This method helps to accentuate the sugars, boost the acids and balance the tannins allowing for a deeper coloured and fuller flavoured wine to be produced”. Indeed, when you sample the wines of Burning Kiln your palate will concur! A range of wonderful wines include their Cureman’s Chardonnay, an intense Pinot Noir dominated by pure black cherry with hints of spice, a blended wine of Merlot and Cabernet Franc called Strip Room as well as a dessert wine, Chenin Blanc just to name a few.
We are thrilled that Burning Kiln is our feature winery for Ontario and look forward to experiencing the above four wines, paired with the dishes masterfully created by Chef Lan Hoang of 3 S’s Restaurant.
Congratulations to the partners of Burning Kiln, with its first release in 2010, there’s already a buzz about the wines and its promising future. The team of owners represents a collection of individuals, each with their own strengths and passion, the combined skills, talents and ambitions required to make Burning Kiln Winery a success are there in abundance!

We mentioned “adventure” for the palate but there is more. Within walking distance from the winery is a completely unique ultra-luxurious eco-resort experience. Another kind of adventure, not for the faint of heart, a true thrill, loads of fun and a must for the active soul! New this summer zip lining, imagine gliding through the forest on a world class zip line canopy tour that includes 8 zip lines, 2 suspension bridges and a 40 foot rappel!
Return to the tasting room, enjoy a glass of first class wine, I’ll take a Pinot Noir, light lunch of local delectables and relish your sense of adventure! We’re booking our Burning Kiln visit soon, wine tasting and zip lining…anyone want to join us?
