Two Taste Ontario! events featured large tastings of Ontario wine recently. There wa strong representation of provincial wineries pouring a wide range of styles largely from the 2013, 2014 and 2015 Ontario vintages.

You’ll find 100+ wine reviews from our team here, along with which stores have the wines in stock now.

I was particularly impressed with the rieslingchardonnay and viognier wines I tasted. Meanwhile, Ontario Pinot Noir may have its best year ever in 2013.
