“There are over 35 wineries, a craft brewery – as well as a new one under construction and cideries,  complemented by fabulous farm-to-table restaurants and bistros, the annual Terroir Wine & Farmers Market in the spring, The Great Canadian Cheese Festival in the summer, TASTE Community Grown festival in the fall, plus an array of historic boutique inns.  There are countless reasons to come to for a visit – and return again and again,” said Bryan Rogers, co-owner of Keint-He Winery & Vineyards.

What is a Taste & Buy Event?

Savvy Company hosts special evenings that shine the spotlight on Niagara-on-the-Lake, Prince Edward County and 20 Valley for consumers to meet the makers and sample their hard-to-find wines, craft beers and ciders.  None of these are available at the LCBO, providing consumers the unique opportunity to order an assortment of their new favorites to be shipped directly to their home or office shortly after the event.  It is the new way to shop and support local.
