An Ottawa First ... A Taste & Buy event featuring Prince Edward County wineries. We invite you to join us.
Prince Edward County is Canada’s fastest growing wine region. Known as ‘The County’, it's a only a three hour drive from Ottawa making it an ideal day trip or a weekend getaway. There are always new wineries opening their doors each summer.
The County is coming to the City!
No need to wait for the summer to discover The County . . . The County is coming to Ottawa. Join us on Wednesday May 9th for a fun Taste & Buy event where you can sip & sample outstanding wines from over 15 wineries.
This is a great opportunity to meet the people who make the wines, to learn more about their winery, their vineyards … and, of course, sample their best wines.
At this Taste & Buy event, you can order any combination of your favourite wines directly from the winemakers to be delivered straight to your home or office.
This event will sell out quickly. Buy your tickets now!
