There are wine producing regions right across Canada, but by far the biggest producers are British Columbia (BC) and Ontario. As of 2011, Canada had eight designated Viticultural Areas, or wine-growing regions, five in BC and three in Ontario. Some grapes are grown in Quebec and Nova Scotia - not on a significant commercial level, but the vineyards in these provinces may make for a pleasant visit.
The more popular wineries tend to be open year-round but are particularly popular in summer months. BC and Ontario wine regions especially have large, well established scenic wine tasting regions that can easily be the focus of a vacation of several days.
