The View Winery sits on a piece of land that has been cherished by the Turton/Ward family for an impressive span of five generations. Initially, the property was dedicated to cultivating fresh market apples, with Spartans and McIntosh varieties thriving on the land. However, a significant transition occurred in the mid-1990s, leading to the planting of vineyards and cider apple orchards.
Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Ehrenfelser, and Pinotage vines replaced the once-dominant apple trees, accompanied by cider apple varieties like Belle de Boskoop, Chisel Jersey, and Bulmers Norman. This transformation was guided by the vision and passion of Chris Turton, the grandson of the original owner, and his great-granddaughter, Jennifer Turton-Molgat.
In 2006, the family undertook a remarkable endeavor by converting their cherished ancestral packinghouse, constructed by Great Granddad Ward in 1922, into a state-of-the-art winery and cidery. This bold move marked the beginning of an exciting new chapter in their legacy.
Today, The View Winery produces an impressive quantity of over ten thousand cases each year. Their portfolio boasts a diverse range of award-winning wines, including Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Ehrenfelser, and their esteemed red wines: Pinotage and Pinot Noir. The winery’s rosé has emerged as a beloved favorite among enthusiasts, alongside their highly regarded Silver Lining Estate blends.
Moreover, The View Winery has left an indelible mark on Canadian winemaking history. In 2013, they made waves by introducing Canada’s very first wine in a can, captivating wine lovers with their wildly popular BLING Sparkling Wine.
With a rich heritage, a commitment to excellence, and a spirit of innovation, The View Winery stands as a testament to the enduring legacy and the unwavering passion of the Turton/Ward family in crafting remarkable wines for all to enjoy.
