NIAGARA COUNTY, N.Y. — Eveningside Vineyards in Cambria may pour its last glass this weekend.
At 17 years old, the vineyard on Lower Mountain Road was among the first wineries to open on the Niagara Wine Trail. The trail now includes 21 locations along the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario, winding through Niagara, Orleans and Monroe counties.
Though business has remained strong, owner and founder Randy Biehl said he’s ready to retire for good, 11 years after retiring from his state job as a parole/probation officer. He's wanted to get out of the business for a few years, and first listed the property before COVID-19.
