Our Story

13th Street Winery is committed to the creation of excellent wines which are an authentic expression of our local terroir and serve as the foundation for the exceptional wine country experience we offer.


Founded in 1998, 13th Street produces a range of exceptional, critically acclaimed wines with a particular focus on Gamay and traditional method sparkling wine.


Jean-Pierre Colas joined 13th Street as winemaker in 2009 and brought with him a rich heritage of winegrowing knowledge from his native Chablis in France followed by ten years of experience in Niagara.


In the fall of 2009, owners Doug and Karen Whitty with their business partners John and June Mann opened a new production and hospitality facility on a beautiful estate property in west St Catharines. This provided the winery with additional high quality vineyard land and a historic farmhouse which was lovingly renovated to include a contemporary tasting bar and retail wine boutique, a unique art gallery / private meeting room, greenhouses, an on-site bakery and market plus a wonderful wrap around verandah from which visitors can enjoy the outdoor sculptures and beautiful gardens with a glass of 13th Street wine.


Throughout the year, 13th Street Winery also hosts seasonal wine, food and cultural events to showcase the extraordinary talents of top chefs, artists and musicians from the region.
Plans are underway for additions to our art collection and for construction of additional production and hospitality facilities.
