Wine, today, has emerged as an integral part of our lifestyle, culture, and diet. Many wineries are doing experiments to increase their sells by using various methods of wine preparations. Do you know how many types of wines are there? Actually, a lot of. These wines vary in their tastes and smells depending on the method used by the owner. Different winemaking traditions of Canada over years have served its customers with unique wine experience. On the basis of whether the carbonation process is used or not, the winemaking tradition is divided into two main categories- one, sparkling wine production (has carbonation), and the other is still wine production (carbonation is absent).

Some of the traditions that are commonly used in making wine are described in detail below. Let’s start reading.

Organic Winemaking

To make organic wine, the owners of wineries use grapes that are free from chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Only good quality healthy grapes are selected by the harvester to produce such wines. Depending upon the health of the soil, the quality of the vines is judged. There are several organic vineyards across Canada. Frogpond Farm, Malivoire, and Southbrook Vineyards are only a few of the wineries in the country that have been recognized as certified organic vineyards. Recently, for selling organic wines, a new label is introduced by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. A maple leaf rising from a field with biologique Canada organic written on it will be the logo of the organic wineries.

It is a sweet desert wine which in Germany is known as Eiswine. When the temperature goes down below 17 degree and the grapes on the vines froze, the harvesters begin manual harvesting. They pick the grapes at night when the temperature reaches the lowest point. Before thawing, the grapes are pressed. The juice remains inside the skin of the grapes as ice crystals. After making it undergoes several processes that take months, the ultimate product- the Canadian Ice Wine is produced. Prior to selling it, its intensely sweet taste is balanced through acidity and it achieves a dry and clean finish. You will get a combined flavour of mango, peach nectar, and tropical fruits while the smell will remind you of lychee nuts.
