We are always asked for travel tips. One destination in particular is Prince Edward County.  Just a short 3 hour drive from Ottawa or 2 hours from Toronto, it’s an easy daytrip or a weekend getaway.

This region, surrounded by water, is turning heads as Canada’s fastest growing wine region.  And it is not all about the wine either! “The County” has been named as Maclean’s Magazine’s Canada TOP 10 Places You’ve Got to See in 2014.  The town of Picton, Bloomfield, Milford, Wellington, Cherry Valley and all the points in between was hopping four years ago…and now there’s even more reasons to visit; our list is just a start.

Our 101 Things to Do in Prince Edward County was so popular that we’ve refreshed and updated for the second time.  To help you discover all the neat things that are going on in The County, we got the Savvy Team together (over a glass of wine of course!) & jotted down our favorite things to do in Prince Edward County.  Then we had a contest on Instagram and Facebook asking for hidden gems in the area…and went to the best source – the locals who live there for their secret spots.  Here is the list for now….and if we missed something that needs to be included, don’t be shy….Let us know by email, Facebook or Instagram.

How far down the list can you get?

Rosé Report: Casa-Dea Sparkling Dea Cuvée

Posted by Debbie

Saturday, July 15th, 2017
Share

One of the first wineries in Prince Edward County, Casa-Dea Estates Winery is making a big impression with this sparkling rosé wine.  Just released, this bubbly can be enjoyed on any occasion – picnic, Happy Hour, or stash away for Thanksgiving (if you have to!).  For exactly this reason we included it in this month’s Deck Party Pack.

Here is a neat golden nugget to drop into conversation: Winemaker Paul Battilana was originally trained as a butcher, before he made the leap to winemaking after his curiosity transformed his career. And the wine industry is taking note as he was named by MacLean’s Magazine last year ‘as one of the Canadian winemakers to watch’.

 

Savvy Sommelier Tasting notes: Pretty in the glass, it is refreshing, bright, and reminds us of summer…all throughout the year. Light aromas of strawberry and juicy peaches, the acidity of this wine makes is perfect to start any occasion.

$21.95
Ontario Wine Region: Prince Edward County

 

Suggested Food Pairings: Chips. Delicious Spiced Sweet Potato Chips. The salt plays with the bubbles of the wine and fireworks start off in your mouth.  Try it!

Ingredients

 

1 12-oz sweet potato, peeled
½ tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp sugar
¼ tsp chili powder
¼ tsp salt

 

Directions

Heat oven to 375°F.

Slice potato into very thin slices using v-slicer mandoline. Spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. Arrange potato slices on the baking sheets in a single layer. Coat slices lightly with cooking spray.

Bake for 7 minutes, or until barely starting to brown. Turn potato slices over and return to the oven. Bake until lightly browned, about 7 to 10 minutes more. Transfer finished slices to a bowl and repeat with remaining slices, if necessary. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cumin, sugar, chili powder, and salt.

Pour spice mixture over chips and toss well before serving.

Enjoy!

Rosé Report: Casa-Dea Cabernet Franc Rosé 2016

Posted by Debbie

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Care for a round of bocce? If you’re travelling to The County (aka Prince Edward County that is) this summer, stop by Casa-Dea Estates Winery and try your hand at Bocce – an Italian version of lawn bowling – on the pitch right beside Casa-Dea’s vineyards. The game is made even better with a chilled glass of Rosé playing along side with Casa-Dea’s cool winemaker Paul Battilana.  He has a competitive streak!

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Brilliant clarity in this pinky-peach concoction. Abundant aromas of wildflowers and strawberries, juicy peaches, even a floral whiff that might remind you of the delicate flower of Lily of the Valley.  Top it all off with subtle hints of fresh herbs with a silky texture balanced out with measured acidity and a lengthy finish. Mama Mia – it is good!

Casa-Dea Estates Winery Cabernet Franc Rosé VQA 2016

$18.95
Ontario Wine Region: Prince Edward County

Suggested Food Pairing: Try with yummy BBQ Pork Burgers – recipe below.

 

 

 

BBQ Pork Burgers

Serves 4
Recipe by David Leite -adapted from Gourmet- Gourmet Weekday
Photo credit:  Romulo Yanes

 

Ingredients

For the slaw:

1/4 cup store bought or homemade mayonnaise
1 tablespoon milk
1 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
2 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
1/2 cup very finely shredded carrot
1 tablespoon thinly sliced chives or scallions
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

For the pork burgers:

1/2 cup your favourite store-bought or homemade BBQ sauce (tomato-based)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 1/2 pounds ground pork
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil, for the grill rack
4 buns or Kaiser rolls or soft squishy breadstuff of some sort, split and toasted or grilled

 

Directions

Make the slaw:

In a bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, milk, and vinegar until smooth. Toss in the cabbage, carrot, chives, and salt and pepper to taste and gently mix to coat. Let the slaw stand at room temperature, uncovered, while you cook the burgers or, if you prefer your slaw crisp, cover it and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.

 

Make the BBQed pork burgers:

Prepare your grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal or medium heat for gas.

In a small bowl, stir together the barbecue sauce, cayenne, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and vinegar.

In a large bowl, gently mix together the pork, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce mixture until combined. Do not over mix. Using your hands, gently form the mixture into 4 patties, each about 4 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch thick, being careful not to pack the pork too tightly.

Carefully slick the grill rack with oil, plop the burgers on top, and grill them, flipping the burgers every few minutes, just until cooked through and no trace of pink remains, 6 to 10 minutes total. Then brush the top of each patty with 1 tablespoon remaining barbecue sauce mixture (or more if you like things mess), flip the burgers again, and grill for 30 seconds. Repeat, so that both sides have been slathered with the barbecue sauce mixture. Brush the cut sides of each of the buns with the remaining barbecue sauce mixture.

Assemble the BBQed pork burgers, starting with the buns and the burgers and adding a heaping spoonful of coleslaw atop each one. Don’t forget to grab a lot of napkins.

Enjoy!
