Lake Erie
The Lake Erie AVA runs through parts of three states: Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York State; it is one of nine AVAs within New York State. While there are more than 18,000 acres of grapes planted in this area; only a small percentage is devoted to premium wine, as Concord is far and away the most widely planted variety in this zone. In fact, the National Grape Cooperative that owns Welch's, is the largest grape company in the area. There is also a bit of Riesling, Pinot Noir and Gewurztraminer grown here as well as Seyval Blanc, Delaware and Chancellor. (Wine/Appellations)
