Alberta is emerging as a wine tourism destination! In recent years, craft breweries, cideries and distilleries have paved the way for winemakers here and we couldn’t be more excited.

With several Alberta wineries and vineyards that have popped up over the last few years, there are phenomenal wine tastings and tours for you to experience. 

So grab your friends and plan a fun summer day trip or road trip to visit some of the best Alberta wineries, vineyards and meaderies.

Here are some of my favorite Alberta wineries I’ve enjoyed visiting over the last few years!

What Type of Wine You Can Expect to Find in Alberta

Most vineyards in Alberta are actually meaderies and fruit wineries.

The province’s climate and terroir isn’t really suited for grape growing, but is very fertile for honey and fruit production.

Therefore, you’ll find plenty of producers who make mead, which is honey wine.

You’ll also find an abundance of wines made from flower nectar (like dandelions) and fruits such as raspberries, rhubarb, haskap berries, saskatoon berries and black currants. 

And perhaps the coolest part of drinking Alberta wine? It’s healthier than grape wine!

Because of the use of honey and berries, most wines produced in Alberta have over 100 times more antioxidants in a bottle of wine compared to grape wine.
