On a tour of Prince Edward County vineyards and wineries, the last one we visited was Casa Dea Estates winery. Vines surround the modern building with the reception, tasting and shop areas. A covered terrace serves as their restaurant in good weather. Since we visited in mid-October, the restaurant tables were moved inside. After tasting several Chardonays and a bubbly, we stayed to eat a lovely lunch. The Italian chef, in Canada on a visa, created meltingly delicious gnocchi, fettuccine and pizzas. We started with a green salad, which had just the right amount of perfectly balanced vinaigrette. When the mains arrived, there was very little talking. We drank the 2010 Chardonnay, which both my sister and I preferred to the 2009 Chardonnay Reserve. Very reasonably priced, so we bought several to take home.
They also have a pavilion for functions and we speculated on what a beautiful place it would be for a wedding. Definitely on our list of wineries to keep on our list for 2014, along with the ones we haven't been to last year or this.
