Ontario Fruit Wines

As you may have noticed, fruit wineries have popped up all over the province, and some of these are now making grape wine too. Ontario wine’s great ambassador Larry Patterson says “Thanks to Minnesota, and their winter hardy grape varieties, we are now looking at a new wine route in southern Ontario ““ Highway 401.”

Larry recently organized a tasting of off-the-beaten-track wines, and it did a lot to prove his point. I didn’t have time to do justice to what was offered but I urge you to explore this new outer realm of Ontario wine, such as Neil and Gwen Lamont’s ‘COFFIN RIDGE WINERY’ in Meaford where you’ll meet ‘Into the light White’ and ‘Back from the Dead Red’.
