A knowledgeable staff sets tutored tastings apart from those offered to the general public by guiding patrons through the winding intricacies of winemaking and suggesting harmonious food and television shows to pair with each sample. The event last for up to an hour, steering participants through a medley of samples selected from a number of local wines, including some not offered during traditional tastings. After selecting a favourite wine based on vintage or bottle circumference, customers can redeem vouchers at the winery’s shop, which stocks its shelves with flavourful ferments such as the 2010 chardonnay ($14.75) and and 2007 pinot noir ($23.75).
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.
