Walking Tour and Wine Tasting: Rocks, Trees, & Vines
Rocks - An interactive talk with geologist Peter LeBaron (engineer and Regional Land Use Geologist, Southern Ontario) of the Ontario Geological Survey, Ministry of Mines who will discuss the geological history of the region.
- Trees – A forest walk with David Smallwood (OWA member, forester and forestry consultant) who will take us on a walk of the Quinte Conservation Managed Forest site to talk about managing a red pine plantation where techniques were employed to mimic some old growth characteristics in part of the stand, with the remainder of the stand being managed traditionally.
- Vines – The final stop is Potter Settlement Wines and Vineyard where we will sample world award winning wines. Sandor Johnson will guide us through the wine tasting experience and discuss why his wines are so unique.
