Ontario Wine & Culinary

Ontario has become one of the world's most renowned and award-winning wine producing areas. The cooler climate lends a complexity to the local wines, and the changing seasons deliver diverse produce, such as delectable ice wines.

Along with great food goes great beer! Ontario’s micro-breweries are anything but ordinary, employing traditional brewing methods and producing unique and delicious, craft beers.

Plan your visit to coincide with a festival, several of which are held throughout the year. With four major Ontario wine regions to choose from, you're sure to be able to taste a wide variety of wines from several different vineyards.
