Great wine truly is made in the vineyard and it is an adherence to this philosophy that informs our choice to farm sustainably, including both organic and biodynamic approaches whenever possible.
KIN Vineyards tends to a vineyard nestled along the Carp Ridge, adjoined by the Carp River, and resting upon the grey limestone of the Ottawa Formation. The vineyard supports a distinct terroir, a unique personality, and a tremendous potential for remarkable wine.
The vineyard is bisected by the Hazeldean Fault showing glacial till over limestone on the upper slope and clay loam over limestone on the lower slope.
Pinot Noir and Chardonnay: the Carp ridge is devoted to this Burgundian ideal.
