4 Local Wines You Need to Try This Summer

There are over 10 different wineries in and around the Capital Region, and we’ve highlighted 4 of our favourite local wines for summer sipping.

KIN Chardonnay,
Kin Vineyards, Carp, Ontario



Medium lemon in colour, this wine presents a nose of citrus, almond and subtle toast notes. The palate is full and rich yet fresh and cleansing with a long finish.

Available in the LCBO.


Project 22 Pinot Noir,
Vankleek Hill Vineyard, Ontario



With notes of aromatic red cherry fruit, herbs, and floral hints combined with a woody spice, this medium bodied red is perfect for long summer days and pairs excellently with hard cheese, pasta and red meat.


Raspberry Splash,
Green Gables Vines, Oxford Station, Ontario



White wine made from an off-dry blend of 5 varieties of cold hardy white grapes, and infused with raspberry for a refreshing and summery splash.


Lil’ White,
Little Red Wagon Winery, Shawville, QC



A fresh and zesty wine with fruity peach and pear notes, Louise Swenson and Frontenac Blanc varietals blend to pair well with white meat, spicy food, soft cheese and lively conversation.
