Favorite thing: The Lake Erie North Shore DVA (Designated Viticulture Area) is a winemaker's paradise blessed with exceptional soil conditions and a regional climate which offers longer sun hours and greater heat units than any other area in Canada. In fact, geographically speaking, it is located as far south as northern California and the Tuscany region of Italy and further south than the Bordeaux and Burgundy wine regions of France.
Our region produces luxury icewines, a range of whites like Vidal, Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewurztraminer and reds such as Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Baco Noir. In all, there are about 1,100 acres of vineyards in Essex County and Cedar Springs near Blenheim.
Colio and Pelee Island remain two of the five largest Ontario wineries by volume. They're also two of the four largest producers of VQA wines that contain only Ontario grapes.
There are many Wineries in the Windsor area.
