South Lake, Prince Edward Island
During the 17th and 18th centuries more ships were wrecked in the colliding tides of PEI's East Point than anywhere else around the island's shoreline. Shipwreck leaves a lasting impression: a dangerously good brine, followed by a sweet vegetal finish. Devastating.

The Dockendorffs, proud family farmers
The Dockendorff family started as wild harvest farmers, but quickly found their calling in cultivating oysters. The bulk of PEI oysters are harvested from the west end of the Island, making these northeastern blondies even more unique. A multi-generation farming family, the Dockendorffs take great pride in their work—their daily dose of satisfaction comes from seeing their prizes floating on the farm. "The intense tides have formed Canada's most spectacular sandy dune beaches but also one of Canada's most prized oysters. Only Shipwreck Selects can survive in these dangerously good waters. “ Jacob Dockendorff
