Barclay Robinson took the helm of Road 13 as Winemaker in the spring of 2020. Barclay joined us from the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario where he sent the past 7 years as the head winemaker at Foreign Affair Winery. He spent the first 10 years of his career as a sommelier before earning an Oenology Degree at Brock University. His passion has always been to craft European styles of wine, specifically in the Italian-inspired Amarone-style. He also brings a passion for music and thinks of winemaking in the same way as a symphony… blending harmonies and balance.
Barclay shares the Road 13 winemaking philosophy and commitment to excellence and continuous improvement that will help us take our wines to new levels of quality and acclaim. The first chapters of our region and Road 13 Vineyards have been written - now we begin the next exciting phase.
