Eveningside Vineyards

THE RIDE: At first glance at the map (and your fuzzy brain), this winery is just down the road from Freedom Run. Again, stay on the “wrong side” of the road. It’s a little over a mile to Eveningside. We felt the crush of travel in that one mile, however, what with the sun high in the sky and our bellies so, very empty (except for the salsa man’s delicious treats!). Otherwise, it’s another easy road to travel. Be on your tiptoes coming around bends in the road, but mostly it’s a quiet, peaceful trek.

THE WINERY: One word: RANDY!!! Okay, I love Randy. Randy is the proprietor at Eveningside, and damn, does he make wine in the country look good. Randy has been rockin’ wine for over a decade now (LLC style), and he knows what’s up. Ask Randy anything […]

Wino On Two Wheels: Cambria Circuit Part I

On the afternoon we embarked on our “home circuit,” we were hungry. Really hungry. We had gotten a bite at Tim Horton’s about six hours previous, and then traversed what seemed the entirety of the greater Western New York region, hunting for the perfect used armchairs (me) and the perfect vintage wedding bands (her). I gained an adorable four-color, 18-piece breakfast set and a crocheted handbag among other random estate sale jewels, but alas, no chairs. At about 2 p.m., I was ready for wine.

The circuit we were tackling was the Cambria Circuit, where five wineries* call home, as do we. I’m a Cambria native (excepting my first years spent in Niagara Falls and then Youngstown, until age 9), and Brooke, my partner-in-crime today, is Cambria’s Town Historian. I also volunteer on the Cambria Historical Society board as unofficial secretary and very official jackass-of-all-trades.

We set off from my** farm, out there where Molyneaux Corners once reigned supreme on the […]

Here’s Part 2 of Kristy’s Wino On Two Wheels Ransomville Circuit Adventure. Part 1 can be read here.

A GUST OF SUN WINERY AND VINEYARD
THE RIDE: Next up on this increasingly gorgeous Sunday was A Gust of Sun Winery and Vineyard, approximately 7 miles due south. With a happy full belly and a pleasant buzz on my brain I set off, thinking only of how lovely was the day. I hooked up with Daniels Road, a north-south road east of Midnight Run, and followed that down to North Ridge Road. Daniels, like Braley, is a sparsely populated, beautiful country road, with a mostly flat terrain. I did encounter a large, tank-like, multi-wheeled Army truck at one point, headed in the opposite direction. Otherwise, the road was almost devoid of traffic. However, as always, stay close to the side of the road (or in the shoulder, whenever possible), stay visible, and stay aware. Tank-like multi-wheeled Army trucks cruising down country backroads likely have somewhere to be, and quick.

While I found the ride south an easy cruise, I realized soon after arriving at […]

Wino On Two Wheels: Intro & Ransomville Circuit Part 1

Niagara Wine Country USA’s breathtaking countryside, scenic vineyards, farms and historic sites are waiting for you whether you are driving, walking or biking through the region. Our new two-wheeled contributor Kristy Mangel is mapping routes and taking names as she chronicles various bike trips in wine country.

Here’s an Introduction & Part I of her first adventure on what she calls “The Ransomville Circuit”

May is National Bike Month, and intrepid two-wheelers everywhere are celebrating the great joy of a bike ride. Not only is riding a bike just plain fun, it’s also a goal-driven way to get a great workout (in this particular case the goal is wine, and the wine is handily earned), assists in connection with place and community, and is a fiscally sound method of transportation.

A little about me: I am a native Western New Yorker, but I’ve spent the last almost 12 years in Chicago, working, writing, and generally acting a fool. I’ve been back […]
