Vintage Erie Wine Challenge Aims to Elevate Taste Buds

Erie PA: VisitErie, in partnership with Lake Erie Wine Country, is inviting wine aficionados to raise a glass in support of the region's wineries and earn prizes by taking the Vintage Erie Wine Challenge. From cabs to chardonnays, to signature blends, participants will uncork the region's finest vintages by using VisitErie's 'Hello Erie' Trip Planner app to check in at any six of the twenty participating wineries in Lake Erie Wine Country. Once the challenge is complete, participants will receive a completion badge to be turned in for a four-pack of bamboo appetizer plates and a Lake Erie Wine Country wooden grill flipper. VisitErie's mobile app challenges offer unique opportunities to promote the region's wineries and incentivize people to visit and explore the Erie area. Past challenges include a Lake Erie Ale Trail challenge and the "Erie on the Rocks" distillery challenge. The Vintage Erie Wine Challenge runs from September 15 through October 31.
