The must-have publication for anyone who buys Ontario wines.
Interest in Ontario wines has exploded. No one apologizes any more for serving them; wine snobs compete instead to find the next great producer. The Liquor Control Board of Ontario reports that Ontario wine now accounts for more than 20 per cent of its wine sales.
The market is clearly ready for "A Pocket Guide to Ontario Wines, Wineries, Vineyards, & Vines." This is the only comprehensive and fully authoritative reference on Ontario wines. In addition to providing up-to-date listings for wineries and vineyards -- from the Niagara Peninsula, the North Shore of Lake Erie, Pelee Island, Toronto, and Prince Edward County -- it reviews practically every Ontario wine currently available and includes many older vintages. Thousands of wines are graded from "undrinkable" to "extraordinary," and Ejbich's appraisals, based on scrupulously careful
tastings, are completely independent and free of bias. Entries also include tasting notes, notes on when a wine is ready to drink, grape varieties and soil types, and the winemaker's approach to his art.
This pocket-sized book, modelled on Hugh Johnson's celebrated international wine guide, will be the must-have publication for anyone who buys Ontario wines, from the average consumer to the serious aficionado.
