Wines of Canada began in 1992 and is still going strong over 20 years later. In 1992 our subtitle was challenging the world as Canada was attempting to establish itself as a country to be recognized as a quality producer of fine wines; a goal Canadian wineries and winemakers have achieved. Over the years we have seen many changes in Canada's wine industry and the website has grown along with it. In the beginning we were aware of just 28 wineries in all of Canada, today there are almost 700 ranging from the small family operation to the massive million dollar estates owned by large companies. Our website is now the leading source of information on the wines, vineyards and wineries of Canada with over 100 pages of information
"Wines of Canada is a great site to promote provincial wines to the world and to acknowledge special individuals connected to the wine industry." wrote agricultural specialist Robert Murray
It has been a fun journey for us we have a passion for the wines and a love of the vineyard. Can there be anything more beautiful than a vineyard other than another vineyard.
To the best of our ability we have listed every winery from coast to coast complete with images and descriptions. They are listed by Province (see below). In British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec the wineries are listed by Appellation, as well as Alphabetically. The site contains information about the history of Canada's wine industry, wine information in general, and of course her famous icewine. We are continually changing and upgrading the website, we are not a retailer and do not provide advice on importing wines.
The website will give you a complete experience including special features and the history of Canada's wines. From the Wonders of Canada to learning about wines. We cover fruit wines, meads and ciders, organic wines, fortified wines and the world famous icewines. We provide reviews of wines and feature articles on the feature winery pages. We promote the wines, wineries and tourism of our great land. Check out our what's New Page. Over twenty years ago we began boasting about Canada's wines and our winemakers keep proving us correct.
