Vines & Wines Wine Trail


Along the south shore of Lake Erie, through the valley created by the mighty Grand River, atop the ridges carved by ancient glaciers and in tiny microclimates nearby, northeast Ohio boasts more wineries per square mile than in any other region. The tiny parcel of land also is home to well over half of the winegrape acreage in the state.

As the cool winds blowing over the icy lake slow growth of tender buds in the spring and the gentle warm breezes extend the summer season into fall, and the valleys collect cold frosty spring air, winegrowing families of the area celebrate their ability to grow some of the finest grapes anywhere in the nation. Hundreds of acres of rolling, lush vineyards, award-winning wines like Pinot Gris, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc, easy to enjoy Chambourcin and Vidal Blanc as well as local favorites made from native varieties draw tens of thousands of visitors each year for touring and sampling.

Plan a long weekend - or better yet a couple of getaway excursions to explore some of the country's best preserved covered bridges, resort communities, antique shops, fine dining and family-friendly eateries, unique museums, dozens of beds and breakfasts - and the sparkling lake itself - are all compliments to the region's star attraction: the wines and the vines of northeast Ohio.

Join us on the Wines and Vines Trail and discover for yourself all there is to taste, experience and enjoy.

Open all four seasons. Casual upscale dining on the southern shore of Lake Erie featuring wood-fired Farm to Table cuisine The Philosophy of Chef Nate and Crosswinds Grille is quite simple: Start with fresh and local products and the end result will be far more superior.

Farm to Table for us is more than a trend it’s the hunt of finding product, building relationships with amazing farmers and serving real food. It is their passion that makes our job of cooking so much easier and their energy that makes our food taste so different. Without them we would just be another restaurant serving imported food.
