Follow your nose for an Ontario wine tour
The wine and cheese culture of The Great Waterway has been helped along by a full calendar of festivals and cultural events. If you like the pipes and drums, don’t miss the Glengarry Highland Games. For a fun way to do just that, start your South Eastern Ontario wine tour by finding your favorite vintage in Prince Edward County. Then ask for it by name as you follow The Great Waterway along the shore of Lake Ontario and the mighty St. Lawrence River. A great way to finish a half-day 1000 Islands boat tour in this area is with candle-light Italian dining at the Trinity House Inn by the river in Gananoque.
Further downstream in Morrisburg, Milano’s Pizzeria offers more than just pizza and plates feature local walleye caught fresh. With local and artisanal fare available all along The Great Waterway, you will really need to work at it if you want to go hungry. And judging by the buzz around Ontario wine right now, visitors who are familiar with Niagara wine tours in Southern Ontario are quickly adding the cideries and wineries of Prince Edward County to their lists of ‘must-do’ Ontario wine tours.
