Event Website

During this one hour gentle walking tour, you will have your first look back into Pelee Island’s rich winemaking history, as you approach the 150-year-old ruins of Canada’s first commercial estate winery.

Descend below ground into the meticulously restored wine cellars with antique stained glass and a 48′ chandelier suspended above a massive 28 seat timber wine tasting table.  Enjoy a wine tasting in Canada’s oldest wine cellar, compliments of Pelee Island Winery.

Visit Hulda’s Rock Amphitheater where you can see Hulda’s Rock as you hear the Legend of Hulda’s Rock poem as told by your Island Ambassador.

To commemorate the memories created on your tour, all guests receive a prestigious limited edition replica Bronze Medallion representing the original bronze medallion won by Vin Villa Winery at the 1878 World’s Fair in Paris.  Effectively recognizing quality wine production in North America at the worldwide level for the first time!  For those under 19 or non-wine drinkers, enjoy a handmade gourmet chocolate Vin Villa medallion (starting in July 2022).

Booking online in advance is highly recommended to guarantee your spot on the tour.

Come be a part of history while making a little of your own!
