OWS PEC, April 18th – Join us in the evening on April 18 at the Wellington Town Hall as we taste through an exciting cross-section of Prince Edward County bubbles.
We’re so lucky in the County that the creativity and innovation this region is famous for is free to express itself in so many ways in the glass! This incredible variety is the vinous expression of our sparkling personality.
Sparkling wine here is made in all styles and from many different grape varieties, including the traditional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir – and also from Riesling, Chenin Blanc, Gamay, Cabernet Franc and from climate-hardy hybrids like Vidal and St. Laurent.
A selection of oysters will be offered as an accompaniment, as well as some alternative options.
The secret [of the County] is in the dirt. The sunny farming region south of Belleville has almost as high a concentration of limestone in its soil as France’s Champagne district. Limestone is fissured and spongy, which allows vine roots to penetrate deep into the bedrock, and the wine it yields is full of refreshing minerality.
