Sometimes it’s not easy running a website that features over 700 wineries, meaderies and cider houses. It is a challenge!  Not as big a challenge as the winemaker / winery owner must go to be successful. In today’s world of social media, the successful winery must adapt to the  forces of Social Media.  

Today’s social media includes Facebook, Twitter, websites , bloggers and numerous other platforms. We jumped on to the  new website trend  twenty years ago. There were far fewer wineries and the majority did not have websites. No one had heard of Facebook or twitter. We were there ,to except the Challenge, and introduce Canadian wines and wineries to the world.

With over 700 hundred wineries, meaderies and cider houses and the number growing the task of reaching out to all of them becomes more difficult. We only ask that the winery takes a few minutes to answer or initial question sheet so we may list them on the site. We also try to contact the winery once a year ( it use to be twice) and keep us posted on changes.
After twenty years of success there are still some wineries that cannot find the time to help us.
Grape researcher Robert Murphy says Wines of Canada is a great site to promote provincial wines to the world and to acknowledge special individuals connected to the wine industry. Robert Murray
Thank you for undertaking such as project as your wonderful website of winesofcanada" : David Craw president of the New Brunswick Grape Growers Association
You have a tremendous website. It's the encyclopedia of Canadian wine. Bryan McCaw
Today we use Facebook, Twitter and our website to help promote the wineries of Canada. We are a Social Media force that promotes our wines and wineries 24/7.  But we sure could use a little more support from those wineries
