Prince Edward County WineGrowers Association
A sense of place is key when discussing wine. After all, chianti's name is derived from the region where it is made, and champagne isn't really champagne unless it originated in the historic French province. The same can be said for Prince Edward County's wine. Aside from their concentrated flavors, the designated viticultural area's nearly 40 wineries are united under the Prince Edward County WineGrowers Association. The organization helps its members with the arduous task of hilling and dehilling grapevines each year, but also finds time to celebrate that hard work.
Pinot noir and chardonnay grapes thrive in the county's climate. As a result, many of the organization's growers specialize in those varietals. Others, however, are more adventurous, crafting bottles of pino gris, gamay, baco noir, and cabernet franc.
Prince Edward County WineGrowers Association hosts three annual events. Spring brings with it the Terroir market, which showcases artisan food, handcrafted wine, and other unique products from local farmers. Each autumn, the association's Taste Community Grown festival honors Prince Edward County's finest local chefs, winemakers, craft brewers, and food producers. An to end the year, the area's winemakers gather with mulled wine and comfort food for a modern interpretation of Wassail, a celebration of the final harvest before winter.
