Take a trip to South Ottawa's land of wine and honey off Highway 416, beginning at Smokie Ridge Vineyard in Mountain, where retired veteran Smokie LeBlanc and his wife Debbie serve up such commemorative wines as Soldier's Pride Battle Born Red and Over the Ridge Chardonnay.
Then enjoy a flight of seven wines and crudites at Green Gables Vines, where you'll learn about engineer Richard Deslandes unique wine-making process.
This is followed by an off-grid trip to Oxford Mills to tip back some sulfite-free fruit wines and honey meads at solar-powered Blue Gypsy Wines.
Tour package includes wine tastings and food pairings. A hearty breakfast is recommended before boarding the bus.
