Lake Erie Shores & Islands Wine Trail


Discover the Lake Erie Shores and Islands Wine Trail. Brisk sea breezes and the moderating influence of our Ohio's own Lake Erie allows our vintners to produce grapes and make wine amid some of the country's most scenic vistas. Throughout this 'cool climate' growing district, historic vineyards and wine families who have farmed them for generations are complemented by new plantings of Rieslings and chardonnays established by dynamic entrepreneurs. Numerous soil types, deposited by years of glacial movements provide fertile ground for great viticulture, new and old.

Beyond great grapes and award winning wines, the region offers a myriad of other activities. Legendary amusement parks, spectacular sunsets, island escapes, the state's largest concentration of indoor waterparks attract families and empty nesters alike. As an internationally recognized 'portal' for birding, enthusiasts travel from around the world to the 'Wine Islands' to see nesting bald eagle pairs, track migratory birds from warblers to waterfowl as well as to enjoy permanent residents like the elegant egrets and great blue herons.
