South Shore Wine Company

The South Shore Wine Company stands as a tribute to the Lake Erie AVA’s winemaking origins and storied heritage of sparkling wine production on the site of Erie County’s first commercial winery. The Mazza family restored the 19th century facility and its impressive Civil-War-era stone cavern, which is now home to an effervescent collection of bubbly bottles produced in traditional, contemporary, and experimental methods, alongside standout emerging varietals and lightheartedly sweeter selections.

You can enjoy South Shore wines and wine slushies seasonally on their peaceful, covered patio or open air deck.

Mazza is a wine, spirits, and craft beer producer with operations in northwestern Pennsylvania and western New York. Established in 1972 with a single vineyard, Mazza now operates three distinct, primary locations in Lake Erie Wine Country: Mazza Vineyards in North East, PA; South Shore Wine Company in North East, PA; and Mazza Chautauqua Cellars in Westfield, NY that also serves as home to Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing.

Since its first vintage in 1973, Mazza now produces more than 475,000 gallons of fresh juice and wine annually and has approximately 600 acres under grape and grain cultivation. Mazza’s family of brands includes numerous and award-winning wines, spirits, and beers distributing to national and international markets.
