For the Canada Day (July 1st) long weekend, we decided to visit the Prince Edward County and check out some vineyards. We chose The Grange of Prince Edward Estate Winery mainly because we liked the menu options listed on their website. To get there we drove through the town of Picton and followed the Taste Trail west. Prince Edward County is beautiful this time of year with blooming fields and green pastures resembling a post card. Our experience at The Grange was great. This winery opened in 2004 and it’s the third oldest winery in PEC.
While we were waiting for the wine tour to start we got to sample some of their wines. I really liked the 2011 Pinot Gris while my boyfriend enjoyed the 2007 Grange Diana Block Pinot Noir.
The tour only took 20 minutes and we got to see the vineyard’s processing and storage facilities. After the tour we ordered a picnic basket for lunch and ate on one of the picnic tables overlooking the beautiful vineyard grounds. The pickled asparagus was delicious and I looved the Pinot Noir jelly!
This turned out to be a memorable visit and I really recommend this winery!
