    • October 11, 2014
    • 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
    • Meeting Place to be Determined

    Let the Lorain County Bar Association and Northcoast Grapevine Tours provide you with a unique and memorable experience touring the beautiful wineries and vineyards of the Lake Erie Shores wine trail.  Northcoast Grapevine Tours is the premier provider of winery and wine event tours in northwest Ohio, specializing in smaller groups so they can deliver a more personal and intimate service.

    Lorain County wineries will be showcased in this tour.  You will be educated on the local grape growing and wine producing industries along Ohio’s north coast.  The area is rich in history and tradition, with winemaking dating back to the early 1800’s.  You will enjoy a day long escorted tour through the countryside to a select group of wineries.

    The tour will take place on Saturday, October 11, 2014 from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  We will visit four to six wineries and enjoy 5 to 6 samples at each one.  The cost will be between $80 and $90 per person (dependent upon how many go).  The fee is for the tour bus, the guide, and the tastings.  If you would like food, that is on your own (unless we order lunch as a group from Paper Moon Winery, which would raise the coast approximately $15 per person – this will be decided by the group once confirmed reservations are in).

    If you would like to attend this event, please send in your confirmation along with your deposit ($25 per person attending) by July 15th.  If we do not receive enough confirmed reservations, we will return your deposit.  Once we have enough people to book the trip, you will be notified via email.  The balance owed is due October 1, 2014.


    Please submit this page to the LCBA before July 15, 2014
    (627 Broad Street, Elyria, OH 44035)


    Please register me/us for the October 11 Winery Grapevine Tour.  Enclosed is my/our deposit in the amount of $____________ ($25 per person.)  I understand that I am required to pay the balance on or before October 1, 2014.  (The amount of the balance will be determined by the number of people attending – either $80 or $90 per person).
