About Black Prince Winery
When naming their winery, John Sambrook and Geoffrey Webb searched for something more creative than just Prince Edward Winery. Instead, they took inspiration from a different Edward, the Black Prince. The eldest son of Edward III, the Black Prince was an accomplished commander in the Hundred Years' War, but more importantly, he ruled over Bordeaux, a region world-renowned for its wine. More than a decade after finding its namesake, the winery showcases the thriving viticultural landscape of Picton through a diverse selection of wines that, much like a maze-shaped community college, strives to be both complex and accessible. In addition to its eponymous line of award-winning varietals, the sprawling 10-acre Black Prince Winery partners with six vineyards in Prince Edward County to showcase other wines rich with regional character.
