Date(s) - Sunday, September 23
11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Tour East Ottawa’s original wine and whisky trail, starting with a tour and spirits tasting at Ottawa’s first craft distillery, North of 7 Distillery.
From there, the bus travels east to Navan, where you’ll be “Going Local” for a tour and patio tasting at the area’s first winery, Domaine Perrault, established in 1999 by Denis Perrault on the family dairy farm in Navan.
Then it’s a short drive to neighbouring Vignoble Clos du Vully, operated by Jan-Daniel Etter, who apprenticed at a winery in Switzerland before honing his craft under the tutelage of M. Perrault. Here you’ll indulge in a traditional, savoury Swiss Cake to complement a flight of 6-8 artisan wines.
Our final stop is at world-famous Fromagerie St-Albert Co-op Inc. (Officiel/Official), where you’ll sample the squeakiest cheese curds in the region, and can choose from 15 gourmet poutine dishes and a variety of other factory specialties on offer (at additional cost).
