Canadian Wines


Canadian wine is produced in Southern Ontario and southern British Columbia, and Nova Scotia. The two largest wine-producing regions are the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario and the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. Other wine-producing areas include the shores of Lake Erie and Prince Edward County in Ontario, and the Similkameen valley, southern Fraser River valley, southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands in British Columbia. There are small scale productions of grapes and wine in southern Quebec and Nova Scotia. The Canadian wine industry also vinifies imported grapes and juice.

Icewine, which can be produced reliably in most Canadian wine regions, is the most recognized product on an international basis. Canada produced 75.9 million litres of wine in 2002 (0.3% of world production).
