Vincor International

This largest wine producer in Canada was founded in 1989. Then in 1992 Inniskillin was taken over and a year later a merger with Bright Wines took place. At the beginning of 2006, the company was taken over by Multi Constellation Brands (American Constellation Brand). Its holdings include wineries or vineyards in the Canadian provinces of British Columbia (Hawthorne, Okanagan Vineyards, Sumac Ridge), New Brunswick, Ontario (Jackson-Triggs, London Winery) and Quebec. Notable joint ventures include Nk'Mip Cellars (first Indian-owned winery) with Osoyoos Indian Band, Osoyoos Larose Winery with the owner of Château Gruaud-Larose (both British Columbia), and Le Clos Jordanne (Ontario) with Boisset from Burgundy. Furthermore, the company owns wineries in Australia, California, New Zealand and in the US state of Washington, as well as the import company Western Wines. Vincor produces wines in Canada under the above and other labels for both the mass market and the upmarket (VQA). The annual production is about seven million cases, the Canadian share is 20 per cent. Refreshment products and wine accessories are also marketed in Canada.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
