When you think of summer, do cherished memories of sun-filled days, concerts in the park, car rides with the windows down and new adventures come to mind?

Well, the season has finally arrived and there are plenty of things to discover as you explore Essex, Kingsville, Leamington, and EPIC Wine Country.  Join us for our featured events all summer long, and find yourself sipping on a glass of refreshing white or bold red wine at any of our 18 vineyards along our wine route, riding in one of the largest motorcycle rallies and participating in a weekend of festivities for the whole family or touring the majestic sails of the tall ships while also strolling the dock to enjoy the work of local artisans and restaurants.
