We Love Wine Country Ontario
Recognizing your commitment to great Ontario VQA wines
We want to reward restaurants and bars that choose to put Ontario VQA wines on their menus. That’s why, in partnership with Foodservice and Hospitality magazine, Wine Country Ontario is pleased to bring you the We Love Wine Country Ontario restaurant-recognition program. When customers see our sign in the window of your restaurant or bar, they’ll know that you offer wines made from 100% Ontario-grown grapes.
All restaurants, bars, hotel dining rooms, private clubs and caterers serving local wines by the bottle or glass are eligible for this recognition. If your wine list is offers:
- Ontario VQA wine by the glass
- And the wine list is made up of 25% Ontario VQA wines or you have 25 Ontario VQA listings.
Submit an application—and one up-to-date copy of your wine list—by completing the online form.
Once your application has been approved, you can request access to:
- We Love Wine Country Ontario window decals—Show your support of our great local wines, by telling customers that you’re “proud to have Ontario VQA wines on the menu”
- Detail sheet for servers—Give your employees the information they need to effectively explain and promote the recognition program and Ontario wines to their customers.
At any time, you can also use the locator to look up a specific establishment, or enter an address or city to find all of the applicable restaurants within 15 kilometres. An alphabetical list of participating restaurants is also available here.
