Spring Culinary Tour
Taste the Flavours of Georgian Bay
If you are anything like us, as soon as the days get brighter, the menu gets lighter. The change of seasons provides a great excuse to switch up the comfort food of winter and make room for open-air markets, patios and farm to table fare. Culinary Tourism in our area is a big deal. From small scale artisans to large production organic farming, craft beer and cider to apple orchards and wineries, the foodie in you will be delighted by the variety of food & drink experiences.
On your first morning at Blue Mountain, make sure you start the day right with an incredible breakfast. Take a complimentary Resort shuttle to The Pottery Restaurant, located at the Blue Mountain Inn. Enjoy a delicious breakfast from an array of choices, centred on locally sourced ingredients.
Walk along the base of the mountain to the Open-Air Gondola and take a scenic ride to the top of the Escarpment where you can enjoy learning about the history of Blue Mountain and Jozo Weider along our History Trail. Stop for a photo opportunity at one of the incredible vistas overlooking Georgian Bay before making your way back to the Village.
"Head to Georgian Hills Vineyard for a glass of wine and a walk around the property for a look into northern viticulture and/or a vineyard tour."
For a mid-morning ‘pick me up’, leave the Resort and grab a great coffee at the Thornbury Bakery Café before heading to Georgian Hills Vineyard for a glass of wine and a walk around the property for a look into northern viticulture and/or a vineyard tour.
If cider is more your style visit the Spy Cider House & Distillery for a glass of organic estate cider or a dram of eau de vie, a clear, all-local apple brandy.
You can also pick up a few snacks for your evening back at the hotel from Thornbury’s Cheese Gallery before heading back to Blue Mountain and challenge your friends to a putting on the miniature 18-hole Cascade Putting Course.
Choose from one of the Blue Mountain Village restaurants and enjoy incredible menus at special rates. Finish out your evening with dessert and drinks Oliver Bonacini Café Grill at the Westin Trillium House
Not only is the Georgian Bay area an incredible emerging wine region, it also knows a thing or two about craft brewed beer! There are so many to choose from, starting with Northwinds Brewery right in the village. Head to Collingwood and hit up Side Launch, Northwinds Collingwood, Collingwood Brewery and more! Planning a tour gives you plenty of opportunity to sample, but you’ll learn some great history about the area we live in.
Once you’re back at the resort, grab another pint on the waterside patio at Northwinds Brewery. It provides a great view. Perfect for deciding on your next activity.
