Why You Should Visit Ontario Wine Country Now

Peller Estates is just one of Ontario's beautiful wineries.

Ontario Wine Country, which encompasses beautiful Niagara Falls and the Niagara-on-the-Lake region of Canada as well as Prince Edward County and Lake Erie North Shore, is well known for producing world class ice wines. Since 1984, the region has been commercially selling the wine made from vitis vinifera grapes that produce varietals such as vidal blanc, riesling, and cabernet franc, which is often enjoyed as a dessert wine or paired with strong, potent-smelling cheeses.
