Want to check out some of those Lake Erie Shores and Islands wineries you’ve heard so much about but don’t know where to begin? Northcoast Grapevine Tours can help! They offer a small-group escorted tour experience — either a public or private tour, or one custom-designed to encompass the exact wineries you’d like to visit. The all-day tours, limited to no more than 12 people, visit at least four wineries in seven hours. They know the wineries and can provide an intimate experience — and some history — you might not get on your own. Northcoast Grapevine Tours picks up guests at various local resorts, hotels and B&Bs. For reservations call 216-587-1965 or 440-282-659, or go to northcoastgrapevinetours.com.
