Ontario Wine Awards  

1995 was a remarkable vintage for Ontario wines. It marked the year Tony Aspler, acclaimed wine celebrity, established the Ontario Wine Awards. Tony's vision was to recognize VQA wines for their quality, distinction and brilliance. Dedicated to recognizing thousands of hard-working Ontarians, the Ontario Wine Awards set industry standards of excellence, ensuring a bright future for Ontario wines. Today with more than 70 wineries and 500 wine submissions the Ontario Wine Awards have grown in both size and stature. The Ontario Wine Awards recognize VQA varietal quality in 25 different categories and acknowledge winners in Bronze, Silver and Gold Medal levels. There are also distinctive awards given out honouring the Winemaker of the Year, White Wine of the Year, Red Wine of the Year, Wine Journalism Award, and Best Label Design.
