Hop-On Tours August 23rd
We are excited to showcase award winning wineries throughout Windsor-Essex County this Summer with our W.E Trolly Wine Tours. Join us on this week’s Hop-On Wine Tour to D’Angelo Estate Winery, Colchester Ridge Estate Winery, and Muscedere Vineyards for a unique wine touring experience. Gather your friends and family and enjoy a relaxing day trip through the winery gems of Essex County.
In 1979 Salvatore D’Angelo began his search for land on which to plant his vineyard. An accomplished amateur winemaker, his ambition was to start his own winery within the heart of Essex County. In 1983 he bought 50 acres of land in Amherstburg and in 1984 Sal planted his first acre of grapes. Today, the magnificent vineyard occupies forty-two acres of the fifty-acre property of D’Angelo Estate Winery. Sal has read every book he can get his hands on about wine, thoroughly studying all aspects of growing and making it. Today, D’Angelo Vineyards has eight acres of vines planted in the Okanagan Valley on the renowned Naramata Bench in British Columbia. This makes Sal the first individual grower-vintner to produce wines in both Ontario and British Columbia. Join us in visiting Sal’s winery on the first stop of this weekend’s Hop-On Wine Tour.

Muscedere Vineyards is nestled on land rich in winery history. Situated in the Chatham region just off the shores of Lake Erie, Muscedere occupies 163 acres of family owned vines producing premium wines from only the finest hand-harvested grapes. They treat their grapes with the utmost attention and care to ensure true, varietal character in each wine they release.

We hope you will accompany us to this final award winning stop on our tour.
