Looking for a great wine? Wine not let it come to you with WineAlign’s new Explore the County Case.

This past March our friends at WineAlign partnered with the Prince Edward County Winegrowers Association to organize a comprehensive tasting of current releases of 100 percent VQA wines from the Ontario wine region. From this tasting, 12 wines were selected by the WineAlign Crü to reflect the current state of PEC wines — and this case is now available for purchase. The cost is $590 which includes all taxes and repackaging fees. Delivery is estimated at $20 in Ontario. Wines will ship in early May 2023.

  • Contains 12 bottles from 10 different wineries.
  • The $590 cost includes all taxes and fees.
  • Includes printed, perforated, detailed tasting notes.
  • Delivery to your door is estimated at $20 in Ontario. Cases are scheduled to ship in early May.


The 2023 Terroir Run Registration is OPEN!

Join us on May 27th for our 11th Terroir Run. A fun 10km+ run from Rosehall Run Vineyards to The Old Third Vineyard. The 10km+ course takes runners along country roads lined with vineyards, lavender, and lilacs. Our runners are encouraged to put some ‘Zest’ into the run by dressing in fun costumes.

We provide a bus to take our runners from the finish to the start so that they don’t have to worry about picking up their cars after the post-run lunch. We ask that you identify in the registration process if you will access the shuttle service so that we can prepare accordingly.

This is a boutique running experience for 100 participants – it is not a race. Included in the registration fee is your runner’s bag provided by Wine Country Ontario with a custom Canadian-made t-shirt (70%bamboo rayon/30% organic cotton) from County T-Shirts, your lunch wine glass, shuttle service, and the post-run lunch that includes food and wine/beer/cider/non-alcoholic drinks all from our local partners.

Runner’s registration kits can be picked up at Rosehall Run Vineyards on Friday, May 26th from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM or Saturday, May 27th at The Old Third Vineyard from 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM. The shuttle to take runners to the starting point leave at 9:30 AM and 9:45 AM. The run starts at 10:00 AM (at Rosehall Run Vineyard).

There are a limited number of post-run lunch-only registrations available so that your non-running friends and family can join in the fun. Please note that we will do our best to accommodate dietary needs.

New for 2023 is a pre-run dinner at Rosehall Run. Registration for the dinner will open by March 15th – for those interested please email to join the waiting list – seating will be limited to 30 guests.

All proceeds from the run are donated to the ROC and Prince Edward County Youth Center to support their food programs.

SAVE MAY 27, 2023 for our 11th Terroir Run

Registration should be live by December in time to buy registration as a holiday gift for your loved ones (or yourself). Please be sure to sign up for our e-newsletter for updates!

Ten Years of Memories, County Style

To celebrate our tenth anniversary we worked with the County’s Niall Eccles to create a special shirt design that captures a few of the memories we made along the road. From 2011 to now, giraffes to dinosaurs, craft wine, to beer, to cider, in rain and in sun, from roast pig to pasta, from The Old Third to Norman Hardie, and then Rosehall Run to the Old Third, and everywhere in between.

Each year the run marks the end of winter and an optimistic start to our short window of Canadian summer and glorious fall. The early morning dew coats our shoes as we wait for all the runners to gather and with a pop of a bird-banger or sparkling wine cork we experience ten kilometers (or so) of Prince Edward County’s beauty. With each winery, we rumble past, and with each fellow runner we encourage, we get closer to the finish line and a chance to share local food, drink, and stories. And when we part we leave behind another year of memories and well-needed funds for a deserving County charity. A special thanks to all our runners for returning year after year, and to our partners for their generous support and hospitality. And, thank you Niall for reminding us of all we’ve shared kilometer by kilometer and year by year. Cheers to great legs, and good bodies!

REGISTRATION IS OPEN so please sign up, invite a friend or family member, and note that this year will be a more intimate one after our COVID hiatus.
