Going Local

We at Pelee Island Winery are part of the EPIC Wineries group. “At the same latitude as the Mediterranean, the Lake Erie North Shore Region is nestled along Lake Erie. This location provides a unique maritime climate in a continental region, with exceptional soil conditions, and longer sun hours and greater heat units than any other area in Canada.” Check out all things EPIC.

Cheers to Ontario

Ontario continues to grow and be recognized for its amazing wine regions.

“Place is everything when it comes to wine. It’s where the sun, the rain, the air and the soil all meet – one special and unique place, like nowhere else on Earth. Cool climates are said to produce the most elegant and exciting wines in the world. Our place is Ontario, and it is the epitome of cool climate.” Want to know more about what makes Ontario special and its wine regions. Spend some time with our friends at Wine Country Ontario.

VQA Ontario Wine Appellation Authority is a regulatory agency responsible for maintaining the integrity of local wine appellations and enforcing winemaking and labelling standards. Learn more about what it means for wine to hold the VQA designation.

Industry Favourites

With the link to their famous “Food & Drink” publication, the LCBO online site offers endless inspiration. Their site also offers recipe ideas paired with your favourite wines.

A lesser known feature of their site and one we love, is being able to locate the product inventory at a specific store location.

For those who want to learn more of the business of wine and specifically the wine industry in Ontario, we suggest the Wine Growers of Ontario site. If grape crop and economic impact are your thing, this is a super informative site.
