Emerging wine regions

Exploring new and emerging wine regions is one of the most exciting aspects of Ontario’s wine experience. Persistence, passion and innovation keeps the winemaking industry growing and evolving beyond the established wine regions Ontario is known for.

And for wine lovers, this means more places to appreciate great reds, whites, rosés and sparkling wines, plus specialities like fruit wines and even lavender or maple infused dessert wine.

Discover new flavours from Ontario’s West Coast on Huron’s Shores to Norfolk County, and from Southern Georgian Bay across to the Ottawa Valley.
