Grape Types

Welcome to our library of grape varietials and wine types that are produced throughout Canada. Knowledge of specific wine types is important when selecting a wine, especially when pairing wine with food. The grape varietal can usually determine the flavours and attributes of the wine. We have created these profiles to educate Canadian wine lovers and help give them confidence the next time they are choosing a bottle.

We have included an extensive selection of wine-making varietals that are commonly found in Canada, all of which can produce outstanding Canadian wines. Click on the wine types below for an introduction to these common varietals. We will continue to build upon our library when new varietals are added to the site.

Navigate through the list of varietals and blends to discover their origins, characteristics and flavours. Find out which grapes are grown in specific regions of Canada and what the ideal growing conditions are. Learn about wine colour, aroma, taste, and winemaking style. We have even included suggested food pairings to help you on your journey. You will certainly see some familiar grape varietals, but also some that are unique to Canadian wine.
