Escape to the Essex Pelee Island Coast for award-winning wineries, sight-seeing opportunities, attractive beaches, friendly bicycle tours, and unique gift shops.

Meander along County Road 50 and escape to the Essex Pelee Island Coast (EPIC) to explore our wine region. Consisting of over eighteen wineries, our picturesque wine region rests alongside the Lake Erie North Shore and produces award-winning, world-class wines. Our prime location, along the most southern shore of Canada, provides a unique maritime climate, and 30 more days of sun, which contribute to a more tasteful and sweeter grape.

Each winery holds a unique story and history you can taste from the glass. From quaint, inviting, family-run estates to the opulent and grandiose, to the oldest estate winery in Canada, all of our wineries are defined by their warm, welcoming nature. Stop for a taste and stay for lunch. There’s always something to toast in EPIC Wine Country.

Colchester and the surrounding area is home to a number of wineries and Farm Dog Cycles is in the middle of them all. A cycling and tour company that is more than happy to guide you around our wine region, velo-style! Find your own pace with a rented ride on sunny, bike-friendly terrain, or join them for a weekend tour of our fabulous award-winning wineries, friendly farms, beaches, parks and attractions.

Along the wine route, there are several other unique stops to make. For a trip back in time, visit John R. Park Homestead and Conservation Area. Explore the Parks’ Classical Revival home, built in 1842, taste baking from the kitchen fireplace, see the workings of an 1885 steam engine-powered sawmill, and stop by the blacksmith shop to witness the making of small hardware at the coal-fired forge.

Why not try something a little different by making one last stop at Serenity Lavender Farm? Over 40 varieties of lavender greet its visitors with its evocative colours and fragrances. Stroll through the picturesque gardens or visit the gift shop and indulge in everything lavender from handmade bath products to culinary delights.
