WineAlign presents County In The City
Bringing Prince Edward County to You!
On April 25th you don’t need to travel to Prince Edward County to try the region’s most spectacular wines – because ‘The County’ is coming to YOU!
County in the City will be held at the Berkeley Church in Toronto. Come out and enjoy samples of more than 50 different wines that will delight the palate and introduce you to some of the most enticing flavours of Prince Edward County. Hors d’oeuvres made from locally sourced and seasonal ingredients will be served throughout the evening. While you mix and mingle, you’ll be entertained by live music with Shawn Brady on guitar along with an accompanying pianist.
