Oh-Neh-Da and Eagle Crest Vineyards, LLC.

Most would agree that the Finger Lakes region is synonymous with wine. With wine trails winding through the area, wine lovers are never without something new to taste. Livingston County has its own Little Finger Lakes Wine Path, which features Eagle Crest and O-Neh-Da Vineyards—one of New York State’s oldest wineries.

Established over 140 years ago to produce “Wine that is Wine” for the Catholic Church by Bishop Bernard McQuaid, O-Neh-Da Vineyard still produces wine for churches of all faiths, while Eagle Crest Vineyards creates wines for folks of all kinds. The vineyards offer natural, pure grape wines from locally grown fruit and are also home to New York State’s oldest bald eagle nests.

Sustainable vineyard practices are also important to the vineyards. Eagle Crest wines are preserved and packaged in recycled glass, with soy-based inks and resealable Stelvin® closures, making them great for the environment as well as for the local economy.

Restaurant Spotlight: Ember Woodfire Grill

Livonia’s Ember Woodfire Grill is not your average American restaurant.

Instead of serving a traditional meal consisting of an appetizer, salad, entrée and dessert, Ember serves up unique tapas-style meals meant to be shared. The food is served when it is ready, which makes sharing even better.

If sharing isn’t your thing, Ember also offers unique entrees to be enjoyed on their own.

The restaurant, located in an old historic train station, has a warm, cozy atmosphere that’s perfect for a date night, dinner with friends, or family get together. The menu, while offering many dishes you won’t see in other restaurants, has something for every taste.
