Nestled among 100 acres of lush vineyards that have blossomed for more than 25 years, Mastronardi Estate Winery cultivates 18 different kinds of grapes that resident winemaker Lyse Leblanc transforms into a prize-winning slate of wine varietals. Lakes Erie and St. Clair sandwich the region, naturally maintaining a suitable vine-harvesting climate that yields the building blocks of sweet dessert wines, crisp whites, bold merlot-cabernet amalgams, and sparkling varietals. Visitors tap into a rainbow of elegant elixirs during tours, tastings, and seminars, decamping to the winery's European-inspired tasting boutique, where a knowledgeable staffer points out oft-overlooked subtleties, such as the pinot grigio’s hints of honeydew and longing. Mastronardi Estate Winery donates a portion of proceeds from the floral-inspired Brianjë riesling to the Batten Disease Support and Research Association in memory of the daughter of owners Eadie and Tony Mastronardi.

Meleg's produce professionals grow a seasonal selection of fresh fruit and vegetables on a 65-acre farm and transform pickings into jams and ciders. Visitors venture into the orchard where they pull peaches straight from the tree during the summer ($0.70/lb.) and arm-wrestle branches for apples ($0.70/lb.) and the locations of secret exits to the corn maze in the fall. Patrons take a break from traversing the trees to browse the orchard's store, where arms overflow with twelve ears of sweet corn ($5) and 250 millilitre jars of strawberry jam ($3). Starting September 15, the cider mill wakes, lets out an ear-splitting yawn, and begins producing sweet apple cider ($3–$5) and vinegar ($10–$15).
