Share This Blog Entry:

Sun Country Highway has expanded its industry leading electric vehicle eco-tourism initiative into Wine Country Ontario with the first three electric vehicle charging station in Central Canada, now at Kacaba Vineyards and Winery, Stratus Vineyard and Reif Estate Winery. The Niagara Electric Vehicle & Wine Media Tour is part of a larger Sun Country Highway Eco Wine Tour initiative being rolled out across 24 wine regions in North America.

Each Niagara winery qualified to receive two free electric vehicle charging stations under Sun Country Highway's Destination Program and is a host participant in the tour media launch event on Monday September 14, 2015. The date was selected in celebration of the Niagara Wine Festival (Sep 12-27th) where consumers can experience Ontario VQA wine over three weekends in September and National Drive Electric Week (Sep 12-20th).

Members of the automotive, food and wine press are invited to experience sustainable wine touring in an electric vehicle convoy supported by members of the Golden Horseshoe Electric Vehicle Association (GHEVA). Sun Country Highway staff and GHEVA members will be providing journalists an opportunity to learn about electric vehicles and to sample some of Ontario’s finest VQA wines.

“We are excited to partner with both Tesla Motors Canada and Sun Country Highway to offer two complimentary electric vehicle charging stations to our guests. Managing our footprint is a priority. While electric vehicles are still a relatively new form of technology, it is a technology that I support. It’s about conserving our environment for our youth and future generations. EVs are the future.” – Michael Kacaba, owner of Kacaba Vineyards and Winery.

“Individuals and businesses like these fine Niagara wineries are helping us lead global change to create a more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable future. “ - Christopher Misch, Executive Vice President and COO, Sun Country Highway.
