More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: FOUNDED 2001 Black Prince - one of the oldest County wineries with a well-appointed Tasting Centre offering the largest selection of wine in the area. Situated on a 50-acre estate right on the edge of Picton, the 10-acre vineyard includes Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and some hybrids. Black Prince was the first winery to use local County oak barrels to age their wines and vintage after vintage the wines receive awards nationally and internationally. Black Prince is also a loyal contributor to the local arts scene and big supporters of new fledgling grower-winemakers. Be sure to visit this summer to learn more about the lost craft of wine barrel-making and witness live demonstrations at the Cooperage on selected weekends.

We toured many wineries when we were in Prince Edward County and enjoyed many of them. The Black Prince winery isn't in the typical rural setting you would expect of a vineyard.

“Friendly winery”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is more of a "store front" type of visit on our tour of wineries in the Prince Edward County. However, I was impressed with the friendly reception and the wines were very good! This winery is very easy to access and is the closest winery to Picton itself.

“No personality”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This was a winery that was the most disappointing of our trip. Wine is ok but it is really set up as a tasting house. You can't see the grapes because they aren't grown on the premises. The person who did the tasting didn't seem very interested in chatting about the wine or the vineyard.

We invite you to return and suggest that you venture outside of just the Tasting Centre next time - you will see that the Barrel House and Cellars are usually Open for a tour and the grapes are growing (and have been for 12+ years in the 10 acre vineyard) right out back ~

“loved the cab franc terroir and pinot noir rose!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Simple tasting room/shop with friendly service, this winery has been around since the beginning of the PEC development in early 2000's. Easy to stop off just outside Picton on #33.
