Prince Edward County, Ontario
Long a destination for beachgoers and vacationers, Prince Edward County – or “The County” as the locals refer to it – is fast becoming a hotspot for anyone who enjoys good food and great wine.
The County is Canada’s newest wine region, with over 50 vineyards and 30 wineries in the area. The wineries range from large ones like Waupoos, the oldest winery in the region, to the smaller, more intimate wineries that have cropped up in the past 15 years and are housed everywhere from red barns to old stone houses. The variety (and varietals) make wine tours in The County a fun way to get to know the area.
The County is not only known for its wine. At 1,000 square kilometres in size and with over 500 kilometres of coastline, it’s the perfect place to work on your tan on the sunny sandy beaches of Sandbanks Provincial Park, which can feel more like the Caribbean than the shores of Lake Ontario. It’s also becoming a foodie destination, with Jamie Kennedy’s farm and the Drake Devonshire attracting foodies from all over Canada and the U.S. And of course The County is full of charming towns like Bloomfield, where you can pop into boutiques and fill up on ice cream.
