Lake Erie Wine Country is hosting its annual Wine and Cheese Weekend from April 20 through 22.

Ticket-holders are invited to visit 22 wineries in Lake Erie Wine Country, the name given the association of wineries located in an historic wine and grape region on the southern shore of Lake Erie in both Pennsylvania and New York.

The wine association was established in 2002 to include wineries along 50 miles of scenic lakeshore between Harborcreek, Pa., and Silver Creek, N.Y.

The grape belt consists of more than 30,000 acres of grapes, making it the largest grape-growing region east of the Rocky Mountains and the largest Concord grape region in the world.

Lake Erie Wine Country's boutique wineries make award-winning and nationally recognized wines, both dry and sweet.

A three-day Wine and Cheese Weekend ticket is $38; a Friday- or Sunday-only ticket is $28; designated driver ticket is $20.

A ticket includes a food and wine sample pairing at each winery, a booklet with recipes of the featured foods, a gift, a Lake Erie Wine Country wine glass and a $5 voucher to use at any winery or designated restaurant.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
