Canadian wine has been produced for over 200 years, but unfortunately very little Canadian wine is exported due to its small production volume. The role of Canada’s cold climate plays a huge part in the country’s wine production as it is now the world’s leading producer of Ice-Wine, a sweet desert wine which is made by leaving grapes on the vines over winter to freeze before pressing. This results in concentrated flavours in a delicious sweet yet acidic wine. Ontario and British Columbia are the two main wine making regions, with 98% of the countries’ best wine coming from these. Approximately 75% of the Ice-Wine in Canada comes from Ontario.
