Limestone-laden soils have given Hillier a unique terroir for viticulture, wine making and hop growing. Take the scenic route towards Wellington along the Loyalist Parkway past century farms, waterfront homes and wineries galore, or stop in at the village of Consecon. Bike along The Millennium Trail through vineyards and century farms or take the ‘golden mile’ along Closson Road where your next stop is just a few driveways down and concludes with an alpaca farm. Enjoy lunch al fresco from food trucks and outdoor kitchens to picnic baskets at various wineries. Stroll the pristine sand at North Beach Provincial Park or meander through the fields at the lavender farm. It’s easy to spend the day or weekend in Hillier, where something local is always on tap.
