It’s now easier than ever to organize a perfect wine country escape with new interactive route planners!
The Grape Growers of Ontario recently launched wineONtour.ca, a mobile tool that offers insider tips and a wealth of information on Ontario’s grape wineries. A�Visitors to the new site can search by winery name, by varietal or by appellation and save their picks to create a personalized tour. A�WineONtour.ca will even give you directions from your starting place, to each selected winery and back again. A�Want to round up your closest oenophiles? A�Share your map via email, Facebook or Twitter.
We love the usability of this map and Debbie Zimmerman, CEO of Grape Growers of Ontario agrees: “With the launch of wineONtour.ca, we’re making it easy to map your route to your favourite winery’s front door. A�We are thrilled with this new mapping tool that includes all grape wineries in the province and makes it simple to discover the wines and wineries of Ontario.”
Want more incentive to try this great new map? We’d like to direct you over to the Grape Growers of Ontario Facebook page – they’ll be giving out weekly prizes all month long with their wineONtour.ca contest.
Of course, there are plenty of great ways to plan an edible adventure for 2014. A�Another one of our favourites is Wine Country Ontario’s Wine Route Planner (clearly we are fans of anything that gets us sipping our favourite Ontario whites and reds!). A�This trip planner lets visitors to the Wine Country Ontario website select and save their favourite VQA wineries, along with other attractions in the area (e.g. Niagara Whirlpool Jet Tours, Shaw Festival and Upper Canada Cheese).
Looking for more experiences to pair with your wine tasting? Take a spin on our brand new Culinary Explorer – which lets you search by product or business and save your edible itinerary. A�The Culinary Explorer lets visitors search accommodations, attractions, culinary schools, farms, orchards, apiaries, artisanals producers, farmers’ markets, festivals and events, restaurants, retailers, tour operators, wineries, breweries, cideries, distilleries…pretty much anything under the locally sourced sun!
