Ten years ago, when someone would ask me where I was from I would always say:
Me: Prince Edward County!
Me: Do you know Belleville?
Me: What about Kingston ?
X: Oh yeah I know Kingston!
Me: I live an hour west of Kingston.
...and then I would dive into all of the wonderful things about Prince Edward County. How it was going to be to Toronto, what the Hampton’s is to NYC. I would brag about all the new wineries, the culinary gems and boasting community of artists!
People never really new how to respond. Some people pictured PEC as a dead town. A little nothing paper town.
Now, when I tell people I live in Prince Edward County. They know exactly where I’m talking about.
I made this piece because I love my hometown. I’m born and raised and here to stay. It features a wine tour map and several wines from the area. This piece is destined for someone who LOVES Prince Edward County!
