Participants can purchase a Discovery Pass which will allow them to visit up to nine EPIC wineries throughout the course of the weekend. At each stop, they will enjoy a carefully selected food and wine pairing served by the winemakers themselves, allowing for a unique level of interaction not regularly experienced on every day visits to EPIC Wine Country. EPIC Wineries is a non-profit organization consisting of 12 winegrowers in the Lake Erie North Shore appellation. With the unique climate and exceptional soil, grape growers in this region provide some of the world’s finest vinifera and French hybrid wine grapes and continually produce award-winning, world-class wines. EPIC holds events throughout the year with the aim of gaining consumer awareness and appreciation of their work and products, all the while providing memorable experiences that draw locals and tourists alike. The Discovery Pass is only $20 and can be purchased here. The event runs from 12pm – 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday. For more information and a link to ticket sales visit facebook.com/epicwineries.
