Canada’s wine regions are primarily located between 41° and 50° North, similar to many acclaimed wine regions in the world. Ontario’s characteristic limestone bedrock and its proximity to the Great Lakes make for wines with exceptional fruit and balanced acidity. Meanwhile, the coastal breezes and cooler climate of Nova Scotia create fresh and crisp whites, with characteristic minerality. British Columbia has the unique combination of extreme heat and cold that results in intense fruitdriven, fresh and structured wines.

The Growth Cycle | Bloom (June 10 - 18) to Harvest (October - November) matches other wine regions of the world, with 100 to 112 days.

CANADIAN ICEWINE Since the early 1990s Canada has been internationally known for the consistent quality of its Icewine. Produced in every Canadian wine producing region, Ontario produces over 90% of this delicious and quintessentially Canadian product which is made from grapes that have been naturally frozen on the vine. Winter temperatures and freezing concentrate the sugar, acid and berry extracts in the grape, resulting in highly concentrated flavours and the complex intensity for which Canadian Icewines are known. Icewine is primarily produced from Vidal, Riesling and Cabernet Franc.

BEYOND ICEWINE While Canada continues to be proud of its Icewine story, it is quickly becoming discovered for the quality of its table and sparkling wines. Each of Canada’s wine regions have unique growing conditions that allow key varieties to shine and be expressive of their place of origin.
