Wines of Canada proudly celebrates the regional diversity of its four primary wine regions – British Columbia, Ontario, Québec and Nova Scotia, each with its own distinct qualities and characteristics.
Shaped by ancient glacial activity and benefiting from the moderating effects of nearby bodies of water, Canadian winemakers strive to express the best qualities of their appellations and pride of place, showing why Canada’s cool climate wines are amongst the best in the world.
Canada is home to a complete range of premium wines, including red, white and rosé table wines, sparkling wine, Icewine, dessert and fortified wines.
On the World Map
Canada’s premium wine growing regions are situated within the internationally recognized growing zones of 30° to 50° North Latitude, which is shared by many other cool climate wine regions of Europe.

Experience Canadian Hospitality
Canada’s wineries welcome more than 3 million annual visitors, who not only appreciate the great wines and natural beauty of its wine regions, but the generous hospitality and ease of travel.
A Leader in Sustainable Practices
While each winery is unique, all Canadian wineries and vineyards are proud of their environmental practices, from certified biodynamic and organic vineyards, to LEED-certified winery facilities, to habitat protection for threatened species.
Renowned for Premium Icewine
Canada is the leading global producer of Icewine, with an average annual production of one million litres produced across the country, primarily from Vidal, Riesling and Cabernet Franc grapes.
A Sparkling Wine Revelation
The best known Canadian sparkling wines are made in the Traditional Method, spending one to four years on their lees before disgorging. Méthode Cuve Close (Charmat) is also used by the country’s winemakers.
