The Best Wineries and Distilleries on Prince Edward Island

The Best Wineries and Distilleries on Prince Edward Island

Updated: 5 January 2018

Prince Edward Island may be small, but it makes room for some truly stellar wineries and distilleries. Be sure to find time on your trip to visit at least one of these great, locally-focused spots.

Matos Winery & Distillery

Matos was born out of a passion for wine, an international influence, and a love of family. This family-owned and operated winery and distillery was opened in 2011 by Jim Matos and his family, and has been earning both national and international awards since its first year. Born and raised on a small island off of Portugal, Jim chose PEI as the spot for his winery both for its unique growing conditions and the similarities the island has to his home. Stop by Matos, located in St. Catherines to browse their selection of wines and spirits.

Matos Winery, 3156 West River Road, Rte 9, Saint Catherines, Canada, +1 902 675 9463

Myriad View Artisan Distillery Inc.

In homage to PEI’s prohibition days, Myriad View are the producers of Canada’s first legal moonshine! They also distill vodka, gin, rum, brandy, whiskey, pastis, and Dandelion Shine, a moonshine flavoured with dandelions and aged in used whiskey barrels. Stop by this beautiful spot, overlooking the water on the Northumberland Strait, for free tastings and tours.

Deep Roots Distillery

What began as a family-owned hobby orchard in 1990 and transitioned to an organic farm in 2005, eventually became an organic distillery in 2014 after owner Mike Beamish thought running a distillery would make for a fun retirement project. Today the distillery produces a variety of unique spirits, including spiced apple liqueur, maple liqueur, absinthe, and camerise, an antioxidant-rich haskap liqueur. Deep Roots offers seasonal tours complete with walks through the orchard and, of course, samplings!

Prince Edward Distillery

Prince Edward Distillery utilizes some of PEI’s best-known produces—potatoes and blueberries—to create their products. They are the first and only makers of vodka distilled from potatoes, and the first PEI makers of wild blueberry vodka. Stop by the distillery to take a tour and to sample their unique spirits.

Rossignol Estate Winery

Rossignol Estate Winery has much more than just good wine. In addition to a wide variety of table wines, fruit wines, and liqueurs, visitors can enjoy touring the farm winery, vineyard, and adjoining art gallery. Add in a panoramic view of the Northumberland Strait and you’ve got yourself a wonderful place to spend an afternoon.
