Rita Kaimins and Ed Neuser own Waupoos Estate Winery, the most personable winery, and one of the most scenic, in Prince Edward County.
It’s in apple country, where cideries abound. A gorgeous winery building, the octagonal Gazebo Restaurant below it, then a broad expanse of vines leading down to a dock on Prince Edward Bay of Lake Ontario (hint: they now have docking facilities for sailors).
The couple are pioneers in PEC terms, planting their first vineyard in 1993, long before the modern gold rush began to snap up vineyard land. The winery opened its doors in 2001. Felix, a frisky but very wise Jack Russell terrier, greets all visitors, but does not lead the tastings.
