2-Day Guide to Prince Edward County for Wine Lovers and Foodies

A weekend away in Prince Edward County is a total dream for any wine-lover or foodie as there are wineries, craft breweries, and cideries around every corner. The mix of fertile and rich limestone soils of the peninsula grow some incredible Pinot Noir and Chardonnay,  for impressive still and sparkling wine. Often compared to Burgundy or The Willamette Valley, this is an area to watch for Canadian Wines. 

It is close enough for a weekend getaway or even a day trip from Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal. Its no wonder that over the last decade the county has gone from a sleepy camping destination to a national treasure with farm-to-table restaurants, boutique hotels like The Drake Devonshire (a property by the famous Drake Hotel Toronto), and possibly even home to an international culinary school in coming years. 

We’ve developed an infographic guide for you to enjoy all the highlights of ‘The County’ (as the locals refer to it) and help plan out your perfect route.

Wine of the Week: Stratus Weather Report Viognier

Temperatures are rising and falling everyday but Viognier is a rich and complex white that can be equally enjoyed on a crisp evening and a pleasant patio. 

PAIR WITH:
Creamy Curries (Korma)
Chicken Salad w/ Apple and Raisins
Persian Cauliflower 
Lobster tail, or Crab Cakes. 

Viognier historically coming from the Northern Rhône Valley of France is a grape that produces medium acidity with a round palate of stone fruit and citrus. The palate echos on the nose with additions of white flowers, and in the case of Stratus a pronounced minerality.
