Something Different at These Two PEC Wineries

Vacationing in Prince Edward County with my cousin and her family was a nice balance of adult and children activities. OK, I’m sure the kids felt otherwise when we weren’t at the beach. Anyway, after visiting winery after winery, you see the same things. This can be trying for everyone when your party includes kids. I was very happy to see something different at Waupoos Winery and Huff Estates.

While visiting one of the many great wineries in PEC, someone told us to visit Waupoos Estates Winery so our kids could visit their petting zoo. Although my daughter did get the see the animals, I never did. I was caught up in selecting a chocolate from their candy store for an evening of wine, cheese and chocolate indulgence.
