Many wineries specialize in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. These wines do particularly well here because of the moderating lake effect and the tendency of these wines to pick up the characteristics of the soil, bringing unique flavours.

Prince Edward County is still a relatively young wine region with winemakers doing innovative things with Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Gamay, Pinot Gris, Baco Noir and, Merlot wines.

  • Red: Gamay, Merlot, Pinot Noir
  • White: Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris
  • Rose': Cabernet Franc
  • Dessert: Vidal
  • Sparkling: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
