Ontario Wine Country

Whether you’re from Ontario, or a visitor to Ontario, plan on spending several days in wine country — there’s just so much to see and do.

ANYTIME. ANY SEASON. ANY REASON.
Wineries are open year round and each season brings its own special rewards.

  • Hours of operation
    With some exceptions, wineries usually open at 10 or 11 am and close from 5 pm through early evening. Hours can change seasonally so it’s best to call ahead or visit the winery website.
  • Guided tours
    Tours are led by well-informed winery staff, who will lead you through the
    winemaking process from the vineyard to the bottling stage. Guided tours are complimentary at some wineries, others charge a small fee. Most tours conclude with tastings at the winery boutique.
  • Tour hours
    Hours vary from winery to winery. Larger wineries usually offer guided
    public tours hourly or several times a day. Smaller wineries may offer one daily tour or by appointment only. Self-guided tours are available at a few wineries during operating hours. Again, check with each winery.
