Wine & Vineyards
We are Ontario’s fastest-growing wine region, with close to 40 wineries opening up over the past 15 years. The pace is not slowing down either; new vineyards are planted each year.
With establishments ranging from small, family-run businesses with just 5 acres, to larger operations producing thousands of cases of wine each year, this is a very active industry on all levels.
Our wines are winning serious accolades. Why? Because the limestone-rich soils produce wines with an unmistakable sense of place.
Many wineries specialize in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which flourish particularly well here due to the moderating lake effect on the climate and the unique soil characteristics. Other wines produced include Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Gamay Noir, Pinot Gris, Baco Noir, Merlot and quite a few more.
With tasting rooms ranging from rustic repurposed barns to modern, sleek concrete and steel buildings with state-of-the-art production facilities, the wine touring experience can be intimate or raucous. The passion of our winemakers and the quality of our wines brings a steady stream of tourists from Toronto, Kingston, Ottawa and Montreal.
