Lake Erie North Shore, LENS for short, is Canada’s first wine region. The first winery opened here in the late 1800’s. Today the wine region is experiencing exciting new growth with the addition of several wineries.
Viewpointe is the most exciting newer winery to call this area home. It’s one of the most significant facilities in North America and is beautiful to look at. It’s also a wonderful place to visit. Proprietor John Fancsy has crafted a location, winery facility and wines that are second to none.
