–Thanks to the Ontario Culinary Tourism Daily for mentioning this article in their August 23, 2012 edition.
Waupoos, near Picton, is in Prince Edward County, which has long been known for its history, scenic shorelines, unique island character, and fresh local produce.
Today, the county is an up-and-coming Ontario wine region boasting scads of wineries and Canada’s newest viticultural designation.
The area still attracts families with its friendly rural character — where else can you buy veggies on the honour system? — and 800 kilometres of beaches, but now it’s also a premier food and wine destination.
In fact, the Globe and Mail has called it “the Gastronomic Capital of Ontario.” World class chefs and award-winning wineries as well as gorgeous views make for a sensory treat second to none.
We try to go at least once a year to check out the new wineries and sample the county’s delights. It is also a seriously photogenic region! I was charmed and delighted by so many things….
We indulged ourselves, tasting wines and spirits at Karlo Estates, 66 Gilead DIstillery, Lacey, Lighthall Vineyards, Exultet, By Chadsey’s Cairns and eating at Portabella, Milford Bistro and Blumen. We had to drop by Vicki’s Veggies as well for organic produce. There’s nothing like it!
Truly, it’s all good.
