Join Travac on a Gastronomic Tour of “The County”
Come and explore Ontario’s newest wine country! Prince Edward County, otherwise known as “The County”, is a rural hotspot with over 40 wineries, a growing craft-beer scene, cider, spirits and fabulous farm to table cuisine.
Prince Edward County is a cultural mosaic of early colonial Canada. Its earliest European settlers were loyalists traveling north from the American Colonies. These early settlers created a culture that remains magnetic to this very day. The simple, laid back lifestyle that is found in the county still resonates through its the hills, valleys and waterways.
Travac Tours wants you to follow the Taste Trail with us and discover some of the best food and drink in “The County”. Find a farm stand or farmer’s market and talk to a farmer; after all, when you know where your food is grown it tastes so much better.
