WINES
“Age is just a number. It’s totally irrelevant unless, of course, you happen to be a bottle of wine.” ― Joan Collins
Satisfy all your wine desires at Lake Erie Wine Country. Pennsylvania’s moderate climate and rolling terrain provides some of the best grape growing conditions on the East Coast. Take the scenic route outside Erie and head east on Route 5; the Great Lakes Seaway Trail to experience the 25 distinct wineries of that span PA and NY along the southern shores of Lake Erie.  With approximately 14,000 acres of grapes, Pennsylvania ranks 4th nationally in the amount of grapes grown and 8th in wine production. The warm waters of Lake Erie are ideal for grape growing and the proof is in the award-winning wines ranging from Vidal Blanc, Riesling, Country Reds and Whites to Dutch Apple, Blueberry and Ice Wines. Stops at Arrowhead Wine Cellars, Arundel Cellars, Courtyard Winery, Lakeview Wine Cellars, Mazza Vineyards, Penn Shore Vineyards, Presque Isle Wine Cellars, and South Shore Wine Company are highly recommended.  Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing in neighboring Westfield, NY offers premium wines in addition to their high-quality small-batch craft distilled beverages.  Finish up at The Grape Discovery Center to learn about the oldest and largest Concord grape-growing region in the world. The grape harvest season culminates in late September with the annual Wine Fest. Tours and tastings are offered year-round.

BREWS

Sample a Belfast Black Ale at Lavery Brewing

Where there is water, hops and barley, there are brewers.  The Erie region is home to several breweries:  Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing, Arundel Cellars & Brewing, Erie Ale Works, Erie Brewing Company, Millcreek Brewing Company, The Brewerie at Union Station, Voodoo Brewery, Timbercreek Tap & Table, Sprague Farm & Brew Works and Lavery Brewing Company.  Each brewery refines their beer from simple ingredients, mixing in a passion for their craft with a personable twist that gives uniqueness to an ever-expanding assortment of flavors, styles and funky names.  Grab a growler or a pint today!

Learn the process, meet the brewers and sample award-winning beers along the Lake Erie Ale Trail. The history of breweries in our greater Erie region is deep and rich. The first local brewery opened its doors over 200 years ago—-36 years before the city of Erie was even incorporated. Over 90 breweries would open from that time up until 1920 when Prohibition came into effect. Only 2 local breweries survived the 13 years of prohibition and in 1933 the now famous Koehler’s Beer came to Erie once again through The Erie Brewing Company. Request your FREE copy of the Lake Erie Ale Trail brochure (814-454-1000 or info@visiterie.com).  Tours and tastings are available at most facilities year-round.  Download the Lake Erie Ale Trail 2016 Brochure here
