KIN Vineyards is the first winery producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the heart of the Ottawa Valley.
KIN Vineyards is made up of two sustainably grown, hand-tended vineyards. One in the quaint community of Kinburn and the other in the town of Carp, located on a beautiful South-West facing slope overlooking the Carp River, also the location of their Tasting Room. Each vineyard supports a distinct terroir, a unique personality, and a tremendous potential for remarkable wine.
Between the two locations, you can find vines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir as well as plantings of Marechal Foch, Frontenac, Vidal Blanc, Marquette and Muscat Ottonel.
KIN Vineyards pride themselves in their intensive soil management and sustainable farming practices to create wonderful organic and biodynamic wines.
In addition to offering tasting and wine by the glass, KIN Vineyards is a beautiful place to hold all kinds of events from private tours to weddings. Each summer they also host a number of public events like yoga classes and Shakespeare in the vineyard.
