From the roaring barley days of the late 1800’s to a stint as Canada’s canning capital, to its present day incarnation as the fastest growing wine region in Canada, this area is a must see. First settled by indigenous peoples more than 2000 years ago PEC is steeped in history and is home to several significant archaeological sites. Join us for a day in picturesque Prince Edward County (PEC).
Located on the shores of Lake Ontario the region is home to over 40 wineries, local food producers, fabulous restaurants, and artisans. Many wineries specialize in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which do particularly well here due to the moderating lake effect on the climate and since these varieties tend to readily pick up the characteristics of the soil bringing unique flavour profiles to the wine.
Prince Edward County is still a relatively young wine region and since the winemakers have an adventurous spirit, there are lots of wineries doing innovative things with Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Gamay, Pinot Gris, Baco Noir, Merlot and quite a few more…
Come experience the bounty of the county, its magnificent views and small town country feel.
