Hillier has a unique terroir for viticulture (winemaking) because of its limestone-laden soils. But the wineries are just one of the reasons to explore this corner of The County.
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. Take the ‘golden mile’ along Closson Road where your next stop is just a few driveways down and your tour ends at an alpaca farm. Enjoy lunch al fresco. Hillier is ideal for outdoor eating with food trucks and outdoor kitchens and picnic options at various wineries. Stroll the pristine sand at North Beach Provincial Park or meander through the fields at one of the lavender farms. It’s easy to spend the day or weekend in Hillier, where something local is always on tap.
