Vines at a Niagara on the Lake winery

Toronto’s Best Wineries for Wine Lovers & Novices

The river, glacier-carved soil of Ontario is perfect for agriculture of all sorts — including stunning grape varietals that fuel some of the best wineries near Toronto. There are multiple award-winning wine regions within a short driving distance of Ontario’s capital. That’s why Toronto offers wine lovers countless opportunities to sip, savour and celebrate the thriving Canadian wine industry for whatever the occasion. 

Just a little further afield, you can make a day trip to Niagara Falls, Prince Edward County, Lake Erie North Shore, or the emerging Ontario wine regions like Norfolk County, Georgian Bay and Huron Shores.

But if you want to make the most of your time in Toronto, don’t overlook the excellent vintages made right in the city’s own backyard in Mono, Vaughan, Newmarket, and more. These award-winning wineries are an experience you won’t soon forget.

Toronto’s nightlife scene is as varied as the crowd it attracts. From Vegas-style lounges to after-hours nightclubs to relaxed sports bars, there are options to suit every mood.
