Wine Growing Regions

Category Submissions


As in much of North America, grape growing and winemaking in Canada only started in the 19th century. Ontario and British Columbia, however, have seen recent dramatic developments in their wine industries that have raised their status to wine regions that are now respected world wide.

All Canadian viticulture is by definition cool climate. Most of the grape growing in the various regions is near to or at the northern limit for the cultivation of wine grapes. This means that Canada's best wines will have many of the features that characterize cool climate wines: intense aromas and flavours, crisp and refreshing acidity and a high degree of complexity.
