ITINERARY

Day 1 - Monday, April 26: Arrival at The Waring House

Make your way to The Waring House (www.waringhouse.com)
near Picton in Prince Edward County. Arrive in time to settle into
your premium room, check out the property, and then meet for a
welcome glass of sparkling wine before our first group dinner at the
in house restaurant, Amelia’s Garden.

Day 2 - Tuesday, April 27: Wineries and farms of the area

Today after breakfast, we have a private vehicle and driver to
take us to the wineries and farms of Closson Road. Four winery
stops with tastings are included, as is a picnic lunch with wine in
a vineyard. Time permitting, we’ll visit a buffalo farm to learn about cheese
production and perhaps an alpaca farm and/or a lavender farm.
We’ll have some time for R&R back at the house before heading
into Picton as a group for dinner with wine.

Day 3 - Wednesday, April 28: More exploring of The County

Breakfast followed by another day of exploring Prince Edward
County. Today’s focus will be more on beer and cider. Prince
Edward County is home to some excellent craft breweries and
pubs, featuring great hospitality and tempting cuisine.
Again, we’ll have our private transportation as we explore the
region’s star producers and enjoy a French Canadian-style lunch
with the bonus of a stunning view. Back at the Waring House,
we are in for a three-course wine appreciation dinner (theme to
be determined) led by the house sommelier in Amelia’s Garden
Dining Room.

Day 4 - Thursday, April 29: Personal choices

Thursday after breakfast, you are free to enjoy the day as you like.
Shop, visit some more wineries, cycle or hike. But be back in time for
our evening cooking class at the Waring House Cookery School. We’ll
be coached by the chef (menu to be determined) and then sit down
to enjoy our handiwork with matching wines. This will be a great
opportunity to revisit some of the fun experiences, share photos with
the group, and celebrate our ability to travel once again.
