Wayne Gretzky Estates
Lonely Planet review for Wayne Gretzky Estates
Hockey: it’s not just about beers and brawls anymore, at least since Ontario’s favorite son, NHL hockey legend Wayne ‘The Great One’ Gretzky, embarked on a new career as a winemaker. Wayne Gretzky Estates opened in 2009 and is producing a veritable rainbow of wines, from cab-merlot blends to ice wine to Rieslings. Before you doubt that a switch from hockey pro to viticulturist is possible, know that No 99, as it’s dubbed, has won several awards. Nevertheless, we doubt Ontario’s legions of rabid hockey fans will be switching from beer to wine anytime soon.
