The Grange of Prince Edward

Sep
16

The Grange of Prince Edward is located in a picturesque vineyard owned by the Granger family. Winemaker Caroline and her daugher Maggie grow seven varieties of vinifera on their 60 acre farm, and exclusively use estate-grown fruit for their wines. The best way to experience The Grange is to grab a bottle of wine and a picnic basket from the tasting room, and enjoy a charcuterie lunch on a picnic blanket among the vines.

Norman Hardie Winery

Aug
04

Norman Hardie Winery is one of the most critically acclaimed wineries in the County. For over 10 years they have been producing Burgundian-style Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, as well as some lower-priced bottles like Riesling and Cabernet Franc. The patio overlooking the vineyard is probably one of the busiest spots to grab lunch on the weekend. Their speciality is Neapolitan-style pizza, and it’s one of the most authentic iterations in the County.
