Summer Cruise And German Barbecue Niagara Driving Tour
Aug 5 all-day

Celebrate all that is good and great about summer with this fabulous driving tour through Niagara wine country — a curvy route perfect for Porsches followed by a delicious gourmet German barbecue crafted by local chef Stacie Royds and hosted by fellow club member Klaus Reif, newly joined last year, at his namesake Reif Estate Winery, a founding winery of the region situated on the Niagara River in Niagara-On-The-Lake!

In addition, Klaus will lead a private tour and tastings for his fellow club members and their guests.  If that isn’t enough, Reif Estate Winery will offer a custom-labelled PCA UCR Special Reserve two-bottle pack (cabernet merlot and riesling) at a very special “club member only” price.

Klaus is a huge auto enthusiast and Porsche fan, currently owning many cars — three of them Porsches, two of them 911s. Reif Estate Winery has played host to many car club get-togethers including Corvette (Klaus owns two) and Tesla (Klaus says he’ll own one soon, unless the Mission E distracts him first).

This driving tour’s route is the very latest and greatest of Niagara’s twists and turns discovered from behind the wheel of Stefan Walther’s 2015 Guards Red Cayman, honed to perfection over seven driving tours, and features sections never before travelled on one of his PCA UCR events.

The tour wraps on the lawn of Reif Estate Winery where chef Stacie Royds will craft several new takes on German favourites — bratwurst, schnitzel, potato dumplings, unique salads — that you won’t want to miss!

Being the long weekend, perhaps book a bed and breakfast, and make this driving tour into a little mini vacation in Niagara.

  • 30 Porsches, 200 kilometres, cost $49 per person (includes mini car show and gourmet German barbecue at Reif Estate Winery)

Blue Mountains Art Appreciation Tour

Join us for our 9th Annual Blue Mountains Driving Tour, which takes a meandering route from Primrose (north of Orangeville) to Clarksburg (aka “Artsburg”). For this year’s event, based on the success of the last couple of years, we’ll have an art appreciation theme.  We’ll travel some scenic backroads alongside winding rivers, go up and down the Niagara Escarpment through a number of quaint villages and our rest-stops will be in towns featuring local artists.  After an enjoyable lunch stop in Collingwood, our curvy route continues through the picturesque Blue Mountains to more artsy towns and we’ll end with a late afternoon Wine & Cheese reception alongside the Beaver River.

Addt’l Payment Info.  Please bring cash for any coffee/snacks you’d like to consume at our starting location/rest stops, and for beverages and optional dessert at lunch time.  And bring your credit cards for any art you’re interested in buying!

Driving Tour To South Coast Jazz Festival (Port Dover)
Aug 18 all-day

Driving Tour To South Coast Jazz Festival (Port Dover)

Sign up early for perhaps the most interesting driving tour of the 2018 season! We currently plan to leave from either Oakville or Milton, and follow a special route over and around Hamilton Mountain and then stop for a group lunch enroute to Port Dover in Norfolk County, the home of a number of wineries. Jeremy organized a great event in 2017 which had us crisscrossing the escarpment on some exciting roads, which many of us felt was the best event we had been engaged in that year; this driving tour will encompass a number of those elements.

Port Dover is the home of the South Coast Jazz Festival, now in its fifth year and attracting top-tier jazz and blues performers over the festival weekend (starts Friday and concludes Sunday afternoon), with the main event taking place Saturday evening, the day of this driving tour. This driving tour includes a ticket for each person to the festival, which includes a reception hosted by Dini Petty, dinner and the evening performances. A special “Porsche paddock” is planned next to the main event venue, so parking at this busy festival is taken care of!

For those who wish to stay overnight, a block of hotel rooms has been reserved but be warned — the number of hotel rooms in Norfolk County is rather limited so, if you want to reserve a room, please register early and then contact John Buckingham regarding the available hotel options. In any case, the block of rooms will be released by June 1, in fairness to the demand from other festival participants. And, for those staying over, a group breakfast is being considered AND your festival ticket will give you access to any of the other performances that day.

Cost for the event is $130 per person and includes lunch and the festival events (reception, dinner, performances). For more information on the South Coast Jazz Festival, please visit http://www.southcoastjazz.com/

  • Hosted by John Buckingham and Jeremy Gunness, [email protected],
  • 25 Porsches, 225 kilometres
  • cost $130 (includes reception, dinner, music performances)

Registration via ClubReg is currently open

Best Of Wine Country Driving Tour (West Edition: Niagara)

 

Enjoy a fun day touring Vineland and Niagara-On-The-Lake in your Porsche with fellow club members —  starting with Southbrook Vineyards, we visit their thoughtfully designed and LEED-certified hospitality pavilion.

Next stop is 13th Street Winery where we sample a couple of Ontario’s quintessential varietals, tour the estate, and don’t forget to treat yourself to butter tarts and other goodies from the famous 13th Bakery! For the art lovers, the gallery at 13th showcases original works by Canadian artists. Last but not the least, a pit stop at Cherry Lane for snacks and juices, before we head back home.
