When 13th Street Winery opened the doors to its new retail facility on Fourth Avenue in St. Catharines in the fall of 2009, part of the owners’ vision for the new location was to provide visitors a unique experience that stimulates all the senses, not just taste. With that in mind, renovations of the turn-of-the-century farmhouse included the creation of the spectacular Gallery Room, designed to showcase various art exhibits. With floor to ceiling windows on two sides, the remaining walls are used to display original art exhibitions by some of Canada’s most respected and exciting artists.
Ten years later, 13th Street Winery is excited to announce the opening of The Gallery at 13th Street Winery. This new gallery is dedicated to selling Canadian art while providing a full range of services for art collectors. The Gallery at 13th Street Winery opened Tuesday November 5th, 2019 and is open daily Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm or by appointment.

Part of the vision for 13th Street Winery is to provide our guests with a unique experience that stimulates all the senses, not just taste. With this in mind we designed the grounds surrounding the winery to feature a permanent exhibit of spectacular sculptures. We currently have over fifteen outdoor sculptures on display and we invite our guests to take a moment, perhaps with a glass of wine in hand, to explore our art collection featuring the works of Karoly Veress, Floyd Elzinga, Dan Solomon, Ken Hall, Ronald Boaks and Ilan Averbuch.

The Gallery Room Table in the Bakery Farmhouse
The focal point of the Gallery Room, located in the Bakery Farmhouse, is the majestic 18-foot, 1300 lb (half-ton) solid slab hardwood table made from Indonesian hardwood. The wood is a tropical hardwood known as Kayu Meh; Kayu means wood in Indonesia and Meh is the species of tree. It is not cut from the rainforest but rather grows very fast and is found on small farms and in villages much like a Maple tree in Canada. This impressive table seats 20 people comfortably and is ideal for a private dinner or corporate meeting.
In November 2019, The Gallery at 13th Street Winery will open its doors and offer guests the opportunity to view and purchase a variety of paintings and sculptures that comprise the personal collection of John and June Mann. Exhibitions will change regularly with each drawing on the stories and the artists represented in their personal collection. Additional Canadian contemporary and historical art offerings will supplement the Mann’s private collection, offering something new to discover with each visit.
