About Us at Essex County Wineries

“An all-in-one winery website showcasing the wineries of Essex County plus restaurant information, event listings and travel information. If you are planning a trip to Ontario’s western wineries, this is definitely a website you need to check out”

In the Beginning:

This website was developed for a love of good wine, good food and drink parties with great friends. By featuring local wines and sharing our experiences we can connect wine lovers both local and abroad to the wineries of Essex County Ontario, Canada. We can also show the world what this region of Southwestern Ontario has to offer.

The Growing Years:

Our goal is to promote and educate the public about our great wine making region by tasting and sampling wines and food of the Essex County area. Once a week we will feature a wine from one of our local vineyards and pair it with a great appetizer or entrée that is sure to please any palate.

Located on the 42 parallel Essex County Wineries are equaled distant from the equator as Italy, France and the great wine regions of California. .
