Inniskillin is perhaps best known for producing “Canada’s wine”, ice wine. In 1975, they were issued the first winery license in Ontario since prohibition. They now own two wineries: one in Ontario and the other one in British Columbia.

Inniskillin has become internationally renowned for its award-winning wines as well as for its pioneering role in establishing the wine industry in Canada. Inniskillin came into prominence on the global stage when it won at the 1991 Vinexpo, in Bordeaux, France. At the Vinexpo, its Vidal Icewine was awarded the highest Grand Prix d’Honneur, which changed the way the world saw Canadian wine.
