Book Description

Oct. 24 2006
Canada’s first-ever wine atlas – the complete reference guide to the country’s vineyards and award-winning wines.

While Canadian ice wine is now an international icon, a gamut of other Canadian wine varieties have surprised the world with their quality. Tony Aspler explores the wine regions of Canada from coast to coast in this indispensable reference book offering guidance on where to go and why, what to taste, and how to make the most of the winery experience. Packed full of insider tips, detailed maps and lush photographs, never before has any book captured the excitement and drama of this burgeoning industry in Canada.

From British Columbia’s Similkameen Valley to Nova Scotia’s Malagash Peninsula, this comprehensive guide lets you meet the winemakers who have made the rest of the world sit up and take notice, and find out what really happens from season to season in the vineyard and in the winemaking process. And as he explores every establishment from the cozy farm wineries that make a single bottling to the high-tech corporations shipping bottles around the world, Tony Aspler gives you his insight into the history of winemaking in Canada.

Come taste the unique style of wines grown in your own backyard. Whether you are a devoted connoisseur or have yet to discover the joy of homegrown Canadian wines, The Wine Atlas of Canada will inspire you to tour the country’s wineries, walk their vineyards and sample their award-winning wines.
