When you take a trip across the Southern Tier you cannot help but notice all the grape vineyards that dot the countryside, like the Merritt Estates Winery.

Well, you can enjoy some of the best wines that not only the Southern Tier has to offer, but New York State as well at the 10th Annual America's Grape Country Wine Festival going on August 11 through 13. It's located at the Chautauqua County Fairgrounds in Dunkirk.

To find out more about this great event and to purchase pre-sale tickets you can head over to their website, www.agcwinefestival.com.

Remember everyone is invited to take part in the Parrothead Kick-off Party on Friday night and the festival itself runs Saturday and Sunday.
