Ontario's wine and craft beer industries are burgeoning in the Bluewater regions. The Essex & Pelee Island Coast (EPIC) Wine Route features many wineries that offer tasting and tours of their facilities. Grey County has a "Saints & Sinners" wineries and breweries tour that does the same. Tour the regions to sample some of the finest beverages in the province!
The island is home to Pelee Island Winery's vineyards and wine pavilion where several tours daily are available from May to October. Tours include the pavilion grounds and a wine appreciation seminar. Visitors will learn about the island's unique history and the reason why it's such a great place to grow grapes. Knowledgeable tour guides explain the mechanical design of an antique European Grape Press. They also provide an overview of the fine art of corks; how they are made and why a good cork is so important to great wine. The 'Vine to Wine' process is highlighted by a video
