A wine tasting tour with Sandbanks Vacations & Tours is an unforgettable experience!
From a recent Trip Advisor review: “My husband and I took our very first wine tour. Having not been on one of these tours before, we were worried it might be one of those stuffy affairs. Glad that wasn’t the case!”
WHAT TO EXPECT

The Terroir: The rolling hills of Waupoos and quaint farm roads of Hillier boast a moderate micro climate perfect for wine, due to limestone rich soils and their proximity to Lake Ontario. The distinct climate and soils of Prince Edward County make it ideal to grow vinifera which resembles those grown in Burgundy, France.
The Wine: The wines of Prince Edward County are produced in a range of styles from dry, crisp early harvest whites to full-bodied reds to sweet and fruity blush wines. The area’s Vinifera varieties include Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Reisling in the Whites and Pinor Noir, Gamay Noir and Cabernet Franc in the reds. To put it another way there is a wine for everyone in the County! Along with these varieties the area also offers a variety of sweet fruity wines, ice wines, ciders, specialty beers and spirits.
