As one of Ontario’s top trending boutique destinations, Prince Edward County is an island in Lake Ontario where you go to fall in love with food, drink, nature, art, and community all over again. We’re a cluster of small hamlets and villages. Our roots are deep in farming and agriculture, trade through our waterways, and unique natural features surrounded by 800km of shoreline and sand dunes. This distinct geography contributes to Prince Edward County's unique terroir as one of only three Ontario VQA wine regions. We’ve been welcoming visitors to our beaches for almost 200 years. Today, ‘The County’ is home to bespoke artists, entrepreneurs, farmers, winemakers, brewmasters, distillers, and chefs, taste trails, and all sorts of creative and passionate folks. We have a reputation for capturing hearts and imaginations with our memorable experiences, notable history, and significant natural landscapes, so be warned: you may find yourself visiting for the weekend but considering staying for a lifetime.
