We here at CBC Life are just as excited as you about Canada's 150th birthday. So in the month leading up to July 1, we're showcasing some of our country's amazing hidden gems from coast to coast: totally Instagram-worthy food, tiles too pretty to *not* shoot, crazy views and more. #CanadaGem#CBClife

Move over, Napa Valley! There's no need to travel to California or the South of France to get your fill of delicious reds, beautiful, blushing rosés and ice cold whites while surrounded by luscious greenery, anymore. Canada has it's own selection of stunning wineries and vineyards scattered throughout places like Niagara-on-the-Lake and Okanagan Valley that are fit for a summertime frolic with friends or a romantic weekend away — or a dinner with world leaders if that's your thing. 

To help acquaint you with these hidden Canadian gems, we've rounded up some of the coolest, most picturesque vineyards from coast to coast across the country. Cheers to a wine-filled summer spent outdoors!
