Home to an ever-increasing number of award winning restaurants, artisanal food producers, and wine and spirit purveyors, Prince Edward County was recently coined the Gastronomic Capital of Ontario. The regions longstanding championing of its local food has really begun to pay off in recent years, drawing resulting in a tremendous increase in food- and beverage-related tourism there.
Unfortunately, not everyone can make it out to the County for a weekend, which is where events like County in the City in Toronto and Ottawa come in. If you can’t make it out to the county, they’ll bring the county to your doorstep!
?Prince Edward County is growing so quickly, it is impossible to cover the map in a weekend getaway?, states Debbie Trenholm, founder of Savvy Company.A� ?County in the City will give everyone a taste of what is in store when you make the road trip, and also gives you the opportunity to meet all of the cool people involved in growing The County. ?
This spring, Ottawa-based Savvy Company decided to host their increasingly-popular County in the City event at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum on Thursday April 10th, featuring 16 wineries, the county’s only craft brewery, a hard cidery, two cheese artisans, and a fresh pasta maker. The event was so popular that it sold out over more than a week in advance!
?County in the City is a terrific event for us to reach Ottawa consumers.A� Every year, countless numbers of people from Ottawa come down to explore The County,?A� says Glenn Symons, owner and winemaker atA� Lighthall Vineyards.A� ?I am delighted to see that this year�s County in the City has grown to be the largest yet � there are so many great wines, craft beers, ciders and foods made here. I am proud to have my winery in the heart of it all.?
