News and Events

Farmers’ Markets

This year we returned to our existing Toronto markets after adding a few new Toronto locations. Colin & Mary's eldest, Lila Stanners is attending most of the dates with an occasional fill-in from Mary. The markets are a beautiful effort undertaken by earnest folks keen to support local farmers and ensure food security for city and countryside alike. You meet your producers personally and can share in the best that Ontario has to offer your happy mouths and bellies! We enjoy meeting you in your neighbourhood. This year we are at Liberty Village, Leslieville, The Junction, The Stop’s Wychwood Barns, St. Lawrence Market, Withrow Park, West End Co-op’s Sorauren, Trinity Bellwoods, Cabbagetown, Annette Village, maybe Davisville, Fairmount at Greenwood Park, Bloor Borden, and East Lynn Park. For our detailed schedule check our facebook page.

Jaimie Kennedy Summer Dinner Series

We were honoured once more to be asked by celebrity chef Jamie Kennedy to participate in pairing our wines with his excellent locally grown food at two of his J.K. Summer Dinner Series this summer. This is the second year for these Saturday evening dinners, hosted at his farm, which is across from our vineyard here on Station Road. The occasion delightfully highlights his commitment to the bounty of Prince Edward County and Ontario. For reservations for these special dinners, go to jamiekennedy.ca

 

Coffee

We are now selling coffee in our winery tasting room in support of the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory.

 

Tasty Food

We now have available local tasty food that customers can obtain at modest cost and eat on our attractive new patio or in our tasting room, depending on the weather. Artisanal cured meats from La Cultura Salumi (Belleville), award winning cheddar cheese and cheese curds from Empire Cheese Co-op (Campbellford), buffalo and goat cheeses from Fifth Town Artisan Cheese, PEC, fresh buffalo mozzarella from Macioca Farms (Montreal) and baguettes from the Pastry House in Picton are available. A glass of one of our wines that matches what you choose is also a good idea!

 

Harvest 2017

Harvest, that happy event that comes every fall, is coming soon. This year, the grapes look great and the yield is exceptional! Although it is very difficult at this point to predict exactly when the grapes will be ready, we expect that harvest will occur on the Thanksgiving weekend starting Sat, Oct 7th or on the following weekend, starting Sat, Oct 14th. Stay tuned via our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook feeds or, if you’re on our mailing list, we’ll be sending out emails indicating exact dates as the harvest draws closer.


Prince Edward County

Prince Edward County has become a major tourist attraction due to its pastoral beauty, the Sandbanks Provincial Park on Lake Ontario, and a profusion of arts and crafts, excellent restaurants and wineries. It is only 2-3 hours’ drive from major cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. Many small hotels and quaint B&B houses offer warm and welcoming lodging.
