Lake Erie Wine Country is located in the largest and oldest Concord grape region in the world. It is the largest grape-growing region east of the Rocky Mountains with more than 30,000 acres of vineyards that roll along in huge, contiguous expanses. Most of the grapes are the beautiful Labrusca varieties, which are native to the area. 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 than generally do well, as do Blaufrankisch (Lemberger), Dornfelder, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and hybrids Noiret and Chambourcin as reds. These grapes thrive here, producing exquisite fruit for exquisite wines. Regional wines compete and win in national and international wine competitions on a regular basis.
With beautiful villages, Lake Erie sunsets, gorgeous scenery, farmers markets, and delicious award-winning wines, your visit to Lake Erie Wine Country is sure to be an unforgettable experience!
