Multiple Locations Join Prince Edward County’s winemakers for mulled wines, comfort foods and festive good cheer. Ontario’s most unique wine celebration, Wassail pays tribute to the age old tradition of celebrating the harvest before the arrival of winter. Merrymakers would travel from house to house singing, feasting and, of course, quenching their thirst with local grog. In Prince Edward County, after harvest we rush to bury the vines to withstand the cold winter. Once the job is done, it’s time to party and everyone is invited! During the last two weekends in November and the first weekend of December, this modern version of Wassail is a fun time to visit wineries and join in the festivities. Arrive singing a seasonal tune and be treated to free tastes of mulled wine, plus comfort foods and sweet treats! Cross wine-lovers off your list with gifts of wine or wine-related items, or shop for unique, local and handmade crafts and other gifts. Enjoy the festivities without worrying about the driving. Bus tours run each Saturday and Sunday during Wassail from 1pm – 5:30pm. Details at princeedwardcountywine.ca
