3 Canadian Wineries To Keep On Your Radar

By / Wine + Drinks / September 30th, 2016 / 10
September 22nd, 2016 marked the one year anniversary of wine411.ca, a directory of Canadian wineries, cideries and meaderies compiled in a searchable format. A joint project between the Canadian Vintners Association (CVA) and BlackSquare Inc, the website has had over 46,000 page views since launch.

“We’re always looking at new and innovative ways to increase consumer awareness of Canadian wine,” said Dan Paszkowski, CVA President and CEO. “Wine411.ca is a fantastic way to connect Canadian and international audiences with Canada’s world-class, cool climate wine and wine regions.”

Entries include contact details, tasting and touring information, and more, which makes it a great resource for journalists and researchers looking for contacts in the Canadian wine industry, and for vinophiles who are interested in exploring new wines.

“With the number of Canadian wineries having doubled in the last decade,” states David Gluzman, President of BlackSquare Inc. “There was, without a doubt, a need for a resource like this to support the rapidly-growing industry.”

The directory features 650 Canadian growers and producers. I took a look at the list and found three wineries that are paving new roads for their provinces in the wine industry.
