MAGNOTTA WINERY

271 Chrislea Rd, Vaughan, L4L 8N6 | magnotta.com | 905 738 9463

Stop in at Magnotta Winery’s 5,000 square foot flagship location in Vaughan to sample their Vidal Icewine and discover the winery’s own rebellious history of its own. In the 1990s, the LCBO announced they did not have shelf space to stock Magnotta Winery products. Despite this massive setback, Magnotta Winery decided to sell their award-winning wines directly to the public. Ten years later, Magnotta Winery ice wines were finally featured in LCBO stores after a mediated settlement.

Offer: Complimentary sample of Vidal Icewine
