On the surface, thereâ€™s certainly plenty to love about Canadaâ€™s lush Niagara Region. Verdant and green, orchards and vineyards extend in every direction. In the distance, the fast-moving waters that plunge over Niagara Falls crash down with awe-inspiring, ferocious intensity. But much of what makes this green corner of the world special is actually underneath it. Translation: The soil here is special. Although the wine industry in the Niagara Region is relatively youngâ€”serious winemaking here dates only to the 1980sâ€”the area is smack-dab in the middle of an ancient glacial plain, which over thousands of years has enriched the soil with pockets of different minerals and nutrients. This means that the terroir of one vineyard can wildly differ from anotherâ€™s just down the road. In other words, if youâ€™ve tasted one Niagara wine, you most certainly have not tasted them all.
