The Ontario government is helping bring more visitors to the Canadian province’s wine regions by permitting the sale of single servings of wine for guests to enjoy as they tour a vineyard.
“Ontario is becoming known around the world for making top-quality wine,” says Essex MMP’s Bruce Crozier. “Winemakers asked for the government’s help to promote their products and improve tourism in the wine regions, and we listened.”
There are more than 100 wineries in Ontario, sprinkled throughout the Niagara Peninsula, the Lake Erie north shore, Pelee Island and Prince Edward County. In the past six years, Ontario wines have earned more than 125 international awards for excellence.
And now, visitors can sample the local wines when they visit the wineries.
