Viticulture is thriving in our province, thanks to Ontario’s grape growers. These stewards of the land coax crops of premium vinifera and French hybrid grapes year after year. The economic boost to the area keeps climbing. Our regional grape growers continue to invest (to the tune of $684 million plus) in their vineyards to meet rising local demand for premium winemaking grapes.

 

As a result, Ontario wine producers are turning out a wider variety of excellent VQA and 100% Ontario wines for you to enjoy. Award-winning Ontario wines continue to be recognized for their quality year after year.

 

But buying and enjoying local wines goes beyond your glass. When you choose an Ontario wine, you are choosing to give back to your community.
