This is the mini-vacation you’ll love. And be glad you made time for.

Pick either mini-vacation packages – or both! Your choice!


Wake up your inner explorer. Your adventure begins as the Sawmill guide transports you to two charming, hidden gem wineries. There you’ll engage with winemakers and winery owners as they passionately disclose wine-making handcraft. Whether you are a beginner, novice or a wine connoisseur they will introduce you to new wines. And help you discover wines to accommodate your palate. And that’s just the start…

Here’s what one of our wine and island visitors was heard to say:

Best memories ever. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary overlooking a splendid vineyard, tasting unique wines, chatting with the winemaker, and soaking in the sights and scenes of the Lake Erie shoreline. It was like discovering a treasure we had never made time for.
