July 1985: Stoney Ridge Cellars became the 18th licensed winery in the fledgling Ontario wine industry. The winery had inauspicious beginnings at the Weylie farm on Ridge Road in Stoney Creek, consisting of a small barn and garage that served as a retail boutique. Under the direction of Winemaker Jim Warren and his two business partners, Stoney Ridge’s first vintage consisted of 500 cases of 11 different wines, produced entirely by hand. Stoney Ridge Cellars had a commitment to “make small amounts of the very best wine possible from Ontario Grapes.”

The inspiration behind the winery came about by Len and Marisa Crispino’s passion for the full-bodied and elegant wines they experienced while living as expats in Italy. They discovered the wonders of amarone-styled wines in the Valpolicella region of the country. This style of wine is made using the appassimento process whereby the grapes are dried prior to pressing.
