Our journey out of Sandwich Towne will lead us into the future to see the awe-inspiring sight of the Gordie Howe International Bridge, a marvel of modern engineering. We then make our way back to visit historic Walkerville, the cradle of Canada’s distillery and auto industry to include a visit to Willistead Manor, built in 1906 for Edward Walker, one of the sons of Hiram Walker.
After immersing ourselves in the area’s history and culture, we’ll retreat to the serene landscapes of wine country with lunch at North 42 Winery, complemented by a curated wine tasting experience.
