The grapes of Prince Edward County might seem consigned to the wine lists of the city's best restaurants instead of a real, living place just three hours away from Toronto. Now that summer is finally on the horizon, it's time to refresh our memories and plan a return visit (or first-time trip) to wine country.
One annual event that's becoming a staple on our summer calendar is George Brown College's Uncork Ontario – Prince Edward County Wine Tour. The day tour takes guests on a culinary adventure through the County for the day, stopping at some of the best wine destinations. Wine enthusiasts and beginners, accompanied by tour guide and George Brown College expert sommelier, will learn about the unique terroir of the area while sampling plenty of great wines along the way.
The wine tour is offered in conjunction with George Brown College's Wine Symposium, an annual celebration of today's wine industry. Winemakers, winery owners, restaurateurs, sommeliers, agents, and wine enthusiasts will come together for a day of workshops and presentations on June 24, 2019.
We've teamed up with George Brown College to give away two tickets to the Uncork Ontario – Prince Edward County Wine Tour worth $400. On June 22, the winner and a friend will get to explore winemaking in Prince Edward County on a behind-the-scenes guided tour with a wine buff:
