ABOUT THE NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE REGION
Featuring approximately 100 wineries throughout the region, Niagara-on-the-Lakes in Ontario, Canada features one of Canada's biggest wine-producing areas. Roughly 86 percent of Ontario's 17,00 acres of vineyards is in the Niagara-on-the-Lake region. It rests at roughly the same latitude as Northern Italy with moderate climates similar to that of Burgundy, France. It sits where the Niagara River meets Lake Ontario, and looks across the river at Youngstown, New York. This region produces the world's largest volumes of ice wine. Ice wine is produced from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine, which when pressed creates a very sweet wine.
