The Road Explorer - Summer 2018 - 15

Prince Edward County: The Foodie Mecca
As recently as 2007, Prince Edward County (just south of
Belleville) was designated as an Ontario VQA wine-growing region.
Since then, it's blossomed as a favourite hangout for sophisticated
food lovers as well as people who just enjoy tasting and shopping for
locally made food and drink. Winery tours have already become a
staple, but new temptations continue to pop up in The County.
■ Hop Stops: Since hops have been added to barley among local
crops, craft breweries are on the rise. Pre-booked tasting specialists
are ready to greet tour groups at Parsons Brewing Company, known
for their Mexican menu; and Prince Eddy's Brewing Company,
which offers a skate park, beach volleyball and an outdoor stage,
and also accepts afternoon motor coach bookings.
■ The Play's the Thing: The Festival Players were founded in
2006, and in the 2017-2018 season Stratford star Graham Abbey
joined the company as artistic director. The company presents top
Canadian plays mixed in with a choice selection of international
shows performed by top talent in July and August.

Simcoe County: Apple of Our Eye!
Simcoe County, north of Toronto between Lake Simcoe and
Georgian Bay, is known for its apples.
■ Easy as Pie: The Apple Pie Trail is an established route that
combines food and shopping destinations, farm tours and other
activities inspired by South Georgian Bay's apple-growing history,
like the 100 Mile Store in Creemore, which offers apple cider,
apple pie and local organic apples, and Giffen's Country Market,
an orchard shop and restaurant.
■ Local Tipple: With apples and hops in abundance, it's no surprise
that Simcoe County has a thriving craft beer and cider industry.
Creemore Springs Brewery, one of Ontario's oldest independent
craft brewers, offers tours and beer samplings. Beaver Valley
Orchard and Cidery offers sales and samples from a heritage barn,
while Collingwood's Northwinds Brewhouse and Kitchen pairs
handcrafted beers with local foods.

Elgin: Still Growing
Elgin County, on the north shore of Lake Erie, is proud of its rural
history and agricultural presence.
■ County Culture: The Elgin County Heritage Centre programs
exhibits on local history and life in rural Canada. From
September 1 to December 21, 2018, it's offering Baseball and Brass
Bands, with images, instruments and sports equipment from the
19th century.
■ Berry Delicious: Talbotville Berry Farm Market is a new
market facility located on a large farm property that hosts group
functions with catering based on local farm produce. Open
year-round, seven days a week, it's also a prime shopping location,
with preserves, honey, maple syrup, baked goods and local
meats and cheeses. Great Lakes Farms also welcomes tours for
pick-your-own fruit, wagon rides and shopping for seasonal fruits
and farm baking.
■ Grape Expectations: Lake Erie is another growing wine region.
Award-winning fruit winemaker Rush Creek Wines and Quai du
Vin Estate Winery, which hosts music events, are among the
wineries that welcome tours.
