TRAVELLING IN WINE COUNTRY

1
PLAN YOUR DAY

Do your research. Find the wineries that interest you and then use our maps or trip planner to plan your route. Don’t try to cover too much ground. Try 4 or 5 wineries, with a stop for lunch at one of their many restaurants.

2
TASTE RESPONSIBLY

Wine is a beautiful thing but it is still alcohol, so be realistic about the amount you expect to taste. Choose a designated driver or hire one of our tour companies to drive you around. You also don’t have to swallow every drop – tasting rooms have spittoons to dispose of wine you don’t want to drink. Finally, make sure to eat a hearty breakfast and snake n route, so you’re not tasting on an empty stomach.

3
BE CURIOUS

By its very nature wine is meant to generate conversation. So, don’t hesitate to ask questions about the releases that you’re tasting. Ontario winemakers are passionate about their craft and they enjoy the prospect of sharing the fruits of their labour with an appreciative audience.

LOVE IT? BUY IT?

The wines you taste in Ontario Wine Country are not necessarily available through a retail outlet, so take the opportunity to purchase on site directly from the producer. And travel with a cooler, especially during the summer months, so you can properly store the purchased wine to protect it from exposure to the sun and heat in the vehicle. You can also inquire about delivery services and wine clubs.
