Prince Edward County is an up-and-coming wine region, and we certainly had our choice of vineyards to visit. On the recommendation of a number of people, we decided to check out Norman Hardie Winery, and arrived late in the afternoon. We were immediately greeted with a glass of wine, a wood-fired pizza, and a sunny spot to enjoy both—not a bad first impression at all.
We departed the bright lights and busy streets of Toronto and two hours later, we found ourselves surrounded by historic homes and rolling pastoral fields. We found ourselves in Prince Edward County, or 'The County' as it is popularly called.
