Passion In Our People
From the grape growing and winemaking pioneers of the 1970s to the rising stars of today, the Ontario wine industry works together to make world-class wines that can only come from the soils here in Ontario. Most vineyards are family owned and many have generations working side by side. Committed to excellence, Ontario growers combine strong traditional agricultural values while investing in leading viticultural technology and know-how.
Ontario’s winemakers are likewise focused on producing wines that typify grape character and the distinctive imprint of their region. They are increasingly immersed in all facets of production, from the cultivation, to the harvest, to the crushing, fermentation and ageing of wines in the cellar, and to helping tell the story of their wine in the marketplace. Clearly, the best wines are a unique reflection of a winemaker’s passion, inspired by the origin and quality of the grapes grown.
