Black Bank Hill is a vineyard and craft winery in the Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appellation of the Niagara Escarpment wine region. Based on heavy, clay-dominant soils which retain water and nutrients; the warmer than average meso-climate at the foot of the escarpment is open to sunlight and air circulation, enables heat accumulation and the ripening of grapes such as Syrah.

The fruit was hand-picked 13 October 2021 and underwent a wild fermentation in barrel to dry at 2.4 g/L residual sugar and 13.4% abv, with 18-months élevage in barrel on lees. Estate bottled 3 May 23. 73 cases made.

Taylor Emerson and Jonathan McLean launched Black Bank Hill in 2018, initially collaborating with Cloudsley Cellars for production. In 2023, Taylor was able to open their own facility in Beamsville and continues to produce a range of delicious wines.
