Did you know that there are over 30 wineries in Prince Edward County?

Taste them all at this year’s Terroir – a County Wine Celebration on Saturday May 25th where all of the wineries will be under one roof at the historic Crystal Palace in the heart of Picton. This is a great day trip from Ottawa or Toronto, or plan a weekend getaway.

Hop on the Savvy Bus!

New this year, we are running a coach service to Terroir. The Savvy Bus will depart from 2 locations in Ottawa. A Savvy Sommelier will be on board offering tips on wine, cheese or ‘County’ questions along the way. It will be a delicious day trip!
