Canadian Wine Industry Regions

Grape wines are produced in six provinces across Canada: British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.

A wine appellation is a place where grapes were grown to make wine described by a unique place name. These wines are known as appellation wines or wines of origin. Each appellation characterizes a particular area with unique characteristics that are found in the area, such as soil, geology, climate, and topography and may also have a reputation for a specific wine style or grape variety.

A Canadian viticultural area is a designated wine grape-growing appellation region distinguishable by geographic features, with established boundaries that are more specific than the Province, but may contain sub-appellations.
