10 Wines for Canadians, by Canadians, to Try This Canada Day!
The Maple Wine is made from maple syrup collected from trees in the vast maple forests of Nova Scotia. The maple “juice” is carefully cool fermented until the desired concentration of residual sugars is reached. I don’t think there’s anything more Canadian than that, really.
Speaking of Canadian, this is a lovely blend of Chardonnay and Canadian Maple Syrup. A light dessert wine with a smooth finish! Pairs perfectly with caramel ice cream (and might even make a great wine ice cream float). Serve on waffles and pancakes. Canada Day treats!
When Chardonnay met Viognier. It’s the language of love for a reason, so raise a glass and toast the union of these two French grapes with an irresistible sip of sunshine. Embrace Canada’s French side, and maybe get a little romantic with this tasty wine on Canada Day!
We sure love our wildlife here in Canada, and bears certainly seem to have a special place in our hearts! The classic Meritage style blend from Fairview Cellars using all 5 Bordeaux grapes that Bill grows with the Malbec and Petit Verdot being introduced in 2010.
Made with Vidal, Frontenac Gris and Frontenac Blanc, this bubbly matured on lees give off aromas of honey, peach, candied lemon and marzipan. Taste the festive side of the Versant Blanc this Canada with a lovely sparkling wine!
It’s no longer Canada’s 150th birthday, but there is no wine better than this to discover the true flavours of Canada.

A crisp and fruity wine where the aromas and flavours of green apple, melon, papaya, vanilla, toasty oak, spice (bourbon), and coconut balance very well with its crisp acidity and smooth finish. The perfect wine to sip on if your Canada Day is a scorcher!
For one, the beaver is the national animal of Canada (I think). Two, this is the perfect wine to serve if you’re having people over for snacks and drinks on Canada Day!
