THE SHENANGO WOODLANDS WINE TRAIL
The Shenango Woodlands Wine Trail, established in 2019, is comprised of five wineries spanning three counties in Western Pennsylvania (Crawford, Mercer, and Lawrence Counties). The trail sits between Pittsburgh and Erie, and is easily accessible from Interstates 79 and 80.
The wine trail members are proud of their heritage and current natural assets. The Ice Age created the region into an undulating topography covered primarily by deciduous timber and a 100-mile long Shenango River. The farm woodlands supplied some of the first marketable products during the settlement period in the early 19th Century and remains a significant place in the farm economy. The Shenango River, whose name comes from the Seneca meaning, “the beautiful one,” rises in west-central Crawford County and initially flows northwestwardly into Pymatuning Lake then south to Sharon in Mercer County and New Castle in Lawrence County. Also, the region contains five townships with the name Shenango. From 1836 to 1872, the Shenango Division of the Beaver & Erie Canal (Erie Extension Canal) ran 61 miles from Pulaski in Lawrence County to Conneaut Lake in Crawford County. The canal played a key role in the economic development of the region.
