Experience Lake Erie Wine Country, formerly known as the Chautauqua-Lake Erie Wine Trail, located on the south shore of beautiful Lake Erie in Pennsylvania and New York. Here you’ll step back in time as you explore the wineries, villages and beaches that are nestled among green rolling hills in the midst of 30,000 contiguous acres of luscious, fragrant grape vineyards.
The majority of those 30,000 acres are native grapes of the Labrusca variety. In the past 50 years, however, abundant and diverse varieties of wine grapes have been planted in the region with fantastic results. Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewurztraminer and hybrids like Vidal and Vignoles are whites that generally do well in the region, as do the following red varietals: Blaufrankisch (Lemberger), Dornfelder, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and hybrids Noiret and Chambourcin. These grapes thrive here, producing exquisite fruit for exquisite wines.
Lake Erie Wine Country is located in the heart of America’s Grape Country between Harborcreek, Pennsylvania and Silver Creek, New York. With only a handful of stop lights from beginning to end, your drive through almost 50 miles of vineyards in Lake Erie Wine Country will transport you to a bygone era, where people are friendly, and sleepy, quaint Victorian towns are calm and inviting. Along the way you’ll enjoy stopping at any or all of our 24 wineries to sip, swirl and savor the true taste of our region.
