Tour Length – 5 hours
Your Private PEI Winery, Brewery and Distillery Tour departs Charlottetown heading Northwest to Deep Roots Distillery. A family-run, small-batch, craft distillery located in Warren Grove, Prince Edward Island. The distillery took root in 1990 with their first 200 apple trees. By 1995 there were two acres of trees and they opened a u-pick. In 2005 the transition to certified organic was complete.
While the orchard had always operated as a hobby farm, in 2012 the idea of operating a distillery and by July 2014 Deep Roots released their flagship Island Tide spirit. From there we crafted our popular Maple Liqueur using pure syrup from our son Greg’s maple grove as well as syrup from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
Deep Roots now has 8 delicious Island-made products to share with you. We were awarded 2 medals by Artisan Distillers Canada for their 2019 Canadian Artisan Spirit competition. Our newest addition, Absinthe, won a gold medal and best in class! We are very proud of these accomplishments and will use this momentum to carry us toward new and exciting creations.
From roots to bottle, we hope you enjoy their spirits and liqueurs as much as we do!
Your Private Winery Tasting Tour heads to Island Honey Wine. The Island Honey Wine Company opened on July 2017 and offers a variety of Mead made on site; Wildflower Honey, Lavender, Nectar Sweet, Apple Cider and Haskap. It is situated in the scenic rolling hills of Prince Edward Island between Charlottetown and Summerside in the quaint village of Wheatley River. This little piece of certified organic paradise tries to echo the harmony found in nature. A small herd of sheep mow the grasses and bring fertility to the living soils of the orchards. A free ranging flock of colourful ducks challenge the insects and pests that try to enjoy the fruits of farm labour. A friendly Great Pyrenees dog named Abby welcomes visitors as long as they have two legs, not four. She protects the livestock from coyotes and foxes. There are also several thousand honey bees that make this place their home and they are responsible for fruit pollination and honey production.
HEAD WEST YOUNG MAN said someone somewhere, and that’s what we’re going to do, all the way to Barnone Craft Brewery, a small Farm Brewery situated in the beautiful picturesque rolling hills of Rose Valley. Founded in 2011 by Father and Son team Hugh and Don Campbell. We grow a small hopyard with 4-6 hop varieties. At Barnone believe in sharing the finest craft beer and experiences with you.
Some ask is it Bar None? Or Barn One? We say both.Our winery tour departs Barnone and we will take scenic drive to Matos Winery. Matos Winery & Vineyards is a family-owned and family-run business. In 2007, after spending much time researching the growing conditions and suitability of establishing a vineyard in PEI, Jim Matos and his family purchased a 50-acre parcel of land in St. Catherines. They applied the French concept of terroir – finding a place where the combination of soil, slope, sun exposure and the peculiar weather vagaries allow certain grape varieties to unfold their unique characteristics. To this end, they consulted with the finest European vintners who visited PEI to provide their expertise.
Your Wine Tasting Tour Party will depart Matos Vineyard and take your winery tour on a short drive to our destination, Canoe Cove Honey. As we come over the Canoe Cove road hilltop, we are greeted with an astounding view of the Northumberland Strait. Canoe Cove Honey is only 2 minutes away.
Canoe Cove Honey produce a wide variety of items, from the mead, church candles, candles, skin cream and lip balm and of course, jars of honey.
We say farewell as our winery tour departs Canoe Cove Honey to conclude your tour with a 20-minute drive back to Charlottetown with a drive through Victoria Park where we will see, and if theres time to stop we can stop, at Fanningbank , Beaconsfield Historic House and All Souls Chapel to take a boo. We will drop at the Charlottetown Cruise Ship Terminal or where ever you direct us.

PEI Winery Tours wants all clients to be aware that some facilities will be unavailable at certain times of the year or have curtailed their hours to meet seasonal demands such as harvest, planting and more. This is unavoidable but normal. On the plus side it will leave time for a longer stay at another facility or for a different destination in its place.
Thank you for your understanding.
