When harvest is over the wineries of Prince Edward County open their doors for Wassail, a festival of singing, feasting, and imbibing. Many wineries offer mulled wine as a treat for roaming carollers, as well as seasonal comfort foods and holiday treats. There are bus tours available through Wassail in the County or explore at your own pace with a self-guided tour.
