TRAVELLING IN WINE COUNTRY

1
PLAN YOUR DAY

Do a little research before you arrive. Use the maps in the Travel Guide or our online trip planner, and be sure to contact the wineries you plan to visit prior to arriving. Many of the wineries now require reservations for tastings and enhanced experiences.

2
TASTE RESPONSIBLY

Wine is a beautiful thing but it is still alcohol – choose a designated driver or arrange for a hired car. You also don’t have to swallow every drop. Use the spittoons in the tasting room to dispose of any unwanted wine. Finally, make sure to taste some of the delicious food available en route so you are not tasting on an empty stomach.

3
BE ADVENTUROUS BUT RESPONSIBLE

Take the opportunity to try something new and break out of your comfort zone.  Don’t be shy – ask questions to learn and discover all there is to know about VQA wine.

Some wineries are still requesting visitors wear masks so be sure to bring one, some hand sanitizer, remember to wash your hands often and keep your distance in crowded areas. If you have any signs or symptoms like fever, sore throat, cough, etc., or have been in contact with anyone with those symptoms, please stay home and plan to come back another time.

4
BE RESPECTFUL

Wineries are working farms, so please don’t enter vineyards or production areas without permission.  Our small communities love welcoming guests but are also home to families and residents; please follow local laws and clean up after your visit so it remains beautiful.

5
LOVE IT? BUY IT?

Most of the wineries are small independent businesses so the wines you taste here may not be available at your local liquor or grocery store. Take this opportunity to purchase on-site directly from the producer. You can also inquire about delivery and wine club services to enjoy Ontario VQA wines regularly right on your doorstep.
