Lake Erie Wine Country

About this Wine Trail

Lake Erie Wine Country boasts a long grape and wine heritage as home to the largest grape-growing region east of the Rockies. Glacial ridges along the Lake Erie shore are the basis for ideal growing conditions. A drive through this area will transport you to a bygone era, with friendly people, quaint Victorian towns, and beautiful vineyard views.

Tips for Visiting

Take in Lake Erie Wine Country by embarking on a bike tour along the shores of Lake Erie. Whether you prefer a private or self-guided tour, the old-world charm of biking to the region’s wineries while enjoying the scenic backdrop will make for an exciting and unique experience. Once you’ve seen the beauty of the outdoors, check out the views that rival them indoors at the Erie Art Museum.
