Wine enthusiasts may be surprised to learn Ontario has a booming wine industry. The reason is Niagara Peninsula is on the same latitude as southern France. The area also enjoys an ideal microclimate provided by Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment. This is perfect conditions for excellent reds, rosés and whites plus fruit wines and icewines. Maps are available so you can tour some of the 170 local vineyards. A scrumptious example are the award-winning wines from Peller Estates. The vineyard was named the Ontario Winery of the Year in 2018. Is your taste for wine insatiable?
