(WINDSOR, ON) – Ontario’s wine industry continues to expand with new wineries added to the just released 2017 Wine Country Ontario Travel Guide. Published by the Wine Marketing Association of Ontario, the publication is released to the public to support the wineries involved with VQA.
The appellation defines the province’s viticulture. It is a symbol of the integrity of Ontario’s wines by ensuring claims of origin are accurate and meaningful.
This year, the guide adds some new wineries, however, none are in the Shores of Erie area. The additions include three in traditional wine making areas such as Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Wayne Gretzky Estate Winery Distillery and Prince Edward County’s Broken Stone Winery and Sugarbush Vineyards.
The newcomers show how far reaching the wine industry has become in Ontario.
The three new additions are known as emerging regions and consist of Orangeville’s Adamo Estate Winery, Lambton County’s Alton Farms Estate, and Huron County’s Maelstrom Winery.
Each year, two million visitors tour throughout Ontario wine country and, obviously, with the new emerging regions, the tour covers a wider area of the province. Annually the guide publicizes 123 wineries.
The cover of the 2017 Travel Guide features stunning new imagery to outline Ontario’s primary wine touring destinations: Lake Erie North Shore, Niagara Escarpment and Twenty Valley, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and Prince Edward County, along with the up and coming regions.
Today, May 4, 566,000 copies of the Guide will be distributed with the Early Summer Issue of LCBO’s popular Food and Drink magazine.
