Traveling the Lake Erie Wine Trail

Your weary innkeeper has taken on a new, laborious (haha) task!  Visiting all the wineries to create an Insider's Guide, to better help you with your visits to our 26 wineries on the Lake Erie Wine Trail.  To that end, yesterday, in the rain, with my faithful companion Tajana we went to the Northern end of the trail and visited four wineries...Merritt Estate Winery, Willow Creek Winery, Liberty Wine Cellars, and Woodbury Vineyards.

The picture is the result...we tasted approximately 32 wines (each) took lots of pictures, met lots of fun and interesting people.  Lots of chocolate wines, lots of great wines for summer picnics, and some surprising wines!

Look for the results in our Wine Tasting Survival Kit--right now with water, fruit, crackers, cheese, nuts and cookies...soon with the Insider's guide as well.  Please let us know if YOU have any favorites or tips that we should include in the guide!

Adventure Course at Peek'n Peak

Let me warn you....attempt this BEFORE you tour the wineries!  This looks like such fun!  Peek'n Peak  Adventure Park is opening Memorial Day Weekend.  

Check out the video!

There is going to be an Aerial Adventure Course--which includes 8 courses for various difficulty levels that has cable walkways, rope bridge, cargo nets and ladders...and ziplines!

It is a self-guided tour..that starts easy and gets progressively harder.  There will be dual ziplines totaling 2,000 feet!  Also featured are bungie and trampoline hybrids where you can jump and flip (or in my case, flop) up to 25 feet in the air.

So NOW do you understand why I said--wine tours AFTER the adventure course?

And all only 20 minutes from Grape Arbor Bed and Breakfast!
