Wine, Beer, Cider & Spirits

It’s a little-known fact that BruceGreySimcoe is an emerging wine region in Ontario.  With award-winning whites, reds and rosés, plus award-winning craft brews, ciders and spirits, the region is becoming known for more than its beaches.  Take a tour of a winery, cidery or brewery (check ahead in 2022 to see if tours are being offered).  Savour a meal or cheese platter and learn how to pair beverages with your food for the ultimate taste experience.  And, at the end of the day, sip your beverage of choice while relaxing on a patio overlooking a peaceful vista. 

Mixing a bit of history with beverage production, the SIP Simcoe Bootleggers Run map is the perfect guide to BruceGreySimcoe’s craft breweries, wineries and cideries.  Leave the driving to Blue Mountain and Collingwood Adventure Tours with guided tours of wineries, breweries and cideries in the South Georgian Bay area, perfect for a girls'  or guys' weekend away or bachelor/bachelorette gatherings.
