Ontario’s most unique wine celebration, Wassail pays tribute to the age old tradition of celebrating the harvest before the arrival of winter. Merrymakers would travel from house to house singing, feasting and, of course, quenching their thirst with local grog.

In Prince Edward County, after harvest we rush to bury the vines to withstand the cold winter. Once the job is done, it’s time to party and everyone is invited!

During the last two weekends in November and the first weekend of December, this modern version of Wassail is a fun time to visit wineries and join in the festivities. We will be serving hearthy beef bourguignon to guests to celebrate this year’s bountiful harvest.

You can do a self-guided tour or join a bus tour . Advance tickets required for the bus tour, otherwise you can simply pay as you go at each winery you visit. All details here.
