Man handling grapes

Join us on Saturday, June 23 for an extraordinary day as we explore winemaking in Prince Edward County. In conjunction with our Wine Symposium, you can join this one-of-a-kind tour where you will get a behind the scenes look at some of the finest wine destinations in Ontario with our expert tour guide and George Brown College teacher, Doris Miculan-Bradley.

Join us as we wine and dine at some of the most renowned wineries in the County.

First, we’ll travel to Norman Hardie Winery and Vineyard, where we’ll enjoy a delicious wood-fired pizza lunch with wines then head out into the vineyard to learn about viticulture as we taste wines from this celebrated Canadian treasure. Then, we will travel to Hinterland Wine Company to try their sparkling wines. We’ll learn about the methods of sparkling wine production and sample a variety of the unique wines and ciders made by the team at Hinterland and the adjoining County Road Beer Company. From there, we will travel to Grange of Prince Edward for a chance to explore one of the County’s renowned wineries. We’ll enjoy a guided tour of the winery with founder Caroline Granger to learn about the making of wines from the grape to the bottle.

Sign up today and see what will unfold for you on our adventure to Prince Edward County!
