Written by Local Flavour

The Pelee Island Winery, Kingsville

Found at the southernmost inhabited point in Canada, Pelee Island is home to 700+ acres of vineyards for Pelee Island Winery and shares a winemaking history dating back more than 150 years. With the vineyards and Winery Pavilion on Pelee Island and a Retail Boutique along with the main production facility in Kingsville, Pelee Island Winery offers a unique experience to all who visit.

Enjoy a bit of “Island Time”

The Scene

In the heart of the quaint village of Kingsville, Pelee Island Winery is surrounded by amazing local restaurants, unique shops and seasonal farm stands. Here you can experience the taste of “vine to wine”; shop for your favourite wines, apparel, culinary tools and gifts; enjoy the sunshine and live entertainment on the patio and a glass of wine (check the website event calendar for show dates); or book one of the event rooms for a party, meeting, conference or other private function.

The Pelee Island Winery Pavilion encourages you to reset yourself to island time on the relaxing grounds. Surrounded by vineyards and the shores of Lake Erie, enjoy treats from the Deli Hut that pair perfectly with the chill vibe. The hour-and-a-half ferry ride to the island provides a perfect opportunity to exhale and unplug.

In addition to the Pelee Island Winery Pavilion, Pelee Island offers visitors an experience like no other. This is some of the rarest natural habitats in Canada, home to over 10,000 unique species of wildlife, flora and fauna. Birders witness seasonal migrations of hundreds of species. The main road stretches around the perimeter of the island and provides an excellent route to cycle. If you plan to stay the night, plan in advance. An inn, motels, cottage rentals and camping are available.
