News and Events

Farmers’ Markets

The 2017 Farmers Market season is here and we are returning to our existing Toronto markets and adding a few new Toronto locations. This summer our eldest, Lila Stanners will be attending most of the dates with an occasional fill-in from Mary. The markets are a beautiful effort undertaken by earnest folks keen to support local farmers and ensure food security for city and countryside alike. You meet your producers personally and can share in the best that Ontario has to offer your happy mouths and bellies! We enjoy meeting you in your neighbourhood. This year we are at Liberty Village, Leslieville, The Junction, The Stop’s Wychwood Barns, St. Lawrence Market, Withrow Park, West End Co-op’s Sorauren, Trinity Bellwoods, Cabbagetown, Annette Village, maybe Davisville, Fairmount at Greenwood Park, Bloor Borden, and East Lynn Park. For our detailed schedule check our facebook page.

Music, music, music ….

We not only make wine, we also make music! One of our family bands, Telegraph Narrows, featuring Renay Weissman-Stanners and Greg Stanners will perform with their eclectic mix of rock, pop and blues on Saturday, June 3rd at our Winery. They will be performing sets throughout the afternoon starting at 1 pm. So come and enjoy some great music, enhanced by a glass of Stanners wine!

 

Jaimie Kennedy Summer Dinner Series

On Sat, June 24th and Sat, August 26th we will be providing the wines for dinners presented by chef Jamie Kennedy, as part of his new JK Farm, Summer Dinner Series. Our vineyard is just a short walk from Jamie’s farm so it’s a wonderful opportunity to experience locally grown food beautifully prepared by Jamie and paired with our local wines. For reservations for these special dinners, go to jamiekennedy.ca

 

Coffee

We are now selling coffee in our winery tasting room in support of the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory.

 

Tasty Food

We now have available local tasty food that customers can obtain at modest cost and eat on our attractive new patio or in our tasting room, depending on the weather. Artisanal cured meats from La Cultura Salumi (Belleville), award winning cheddar cheese and cheese curds from Empire Cheese Co-op (Campbellford), fresh buffalo mozzarella from Macioca Farms (Montreal) and baguettes from the Pastry House in Picton are available. A glass of one of our wines that matches what you choose is also a good idea!

 

Gourmet Dinner with Wine

The Ontario Wine Society has organized their final dinner for the year with our winemaker at the Peter Pan Bistro in Toronto on Wed Nov 23rd. Some of the featured wines at the dinner are no longer available at our winery so it will be a good event to catch! Please see the OWS website for tickets and details.


Wassail 2016

In Prince Edward County we celebrate the end of harvest and the successful burying of the vines to protect them from the winter cold by observing Wassail. It is a time of feasting, drinking and merriment, which is traditionally also a way of thanking the gods for a good harvest and appealing to them to smile on next year’s harvest. Each year, there are 3 weekends devoted to Wassail; the last two weekends of November (Nov 19 & 20 and Nov 26 & 27), and the first weekend of December (Dec 3 & 4). Our own Colin and Mary have been crowned King and Queen of Wassail for 2016! Each weekend we will be offering Queen Mary’s delicious turkey and vegetarian pot pies which pair perfectly with all of King Colin’s wines and we offer Royal mulled wine or non-alcoholic apple cider as well. We are again accepting donations for the Wellington Food Bank, which serves an important need in our Prince Edward County community. Weather permitting, we’ll have a bonfire burning outside each weekend. Please join us in this celebration.


Prince Edward County

Prince Edward County has become a major tourist attraction due to its pastoral beauty, the Sandbanks Provincial Park on Lake Ontario, and a profusion of arts and crafts, excellent restaurants and wineries. It is only 2-3 hours’ drive from major cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. Many small hotels and quaint B&B houses offer warm and welcoming lodging.
