As great cheese goes with wine, ciders & craft beer, there will be several wineries, cideries & breweries from across Ontario at this year’s festival.

And there is more!

After a cheese-laden afternoon, we will tour the back roads of The Country and take you to off the beaten track to a local cidery & a winery.  Here’s the inside scoop on what you’ll see at The County Cider Company, where they specialize in mouth-watering hard ciders.

They opened their doors in 2013 but have been planting and working the vines since 2003. It’s a great place to stop, sip & relax.

Later in the afternoon it’s back to the Crystal Palace for ‘Makers+Mongers’ dinner where you will nosh on gourmet appetizers, the best cheeseburgers on the planet & desserts that ooze cheese!

The Master Plan… 

The Savvy Bus will depart downtown Ottawa at 8:30am from the Ottawa Marriot (100 Kent St). Then we will head downtown to pick up passengers at Ottawa’s Pinecrest Mall & Starbucks on Princess Street (near the 401) in Kingston.

Our plan is to arrive at the Cheese Festival by 11:30am. By 3pm, we will head off ‘on tour’ to visit County Cider Co & Three Dog Winery, then return for the ‘Makers+ Mongers’ dinner on the lawn of the festival. The coach will leave the Crystal Palace (in Picton) by 7pm & be back in the Ottawa area around 10 pm.  

Bonus – wine experts on board!

Savvy Sommelier will be on the coach with you offering wine tips, telling you stories about Prince Edward County & answering any ‘County’ questions you may have along the way.

Hope to see you on the bus
