A survey of Canada's most important wine region.
Ontario's best wines have achieved worldwide recognition -- a stellar achievement for a wine region barely 20 years old. Ontario Wine Country is a guided tour through the major winery locations -- the Niagara Peninsula, Lake Erie North Shore, Pelee Island, and Prince Edward County -- and its premiere wineries, such as Cave Spring Cellars and Pelee Island. Wine expert Rod Phillips describes the history, the present state of the art, and the future of winemaking in this region. He also profiles hundreds of the owners, viticulturists, and winemakers who make the wines that are winning awards around the world.
Rod Phillips's articles and wine reviews have appeared in Wine Spectator, Wine Access, France Today, Tidings and other magazines, and he is the wine columnist for the Ottawa Citizen. A previous book, A Short History of Wine, has been translated into several languages. Phillips is a certified sommelier, teaches in a sommelier certification program, and judges at wine competitions internationally.
