State Assemblyman John Ceretto, R-I-138th District, and State Sen. George Maziarz, R-C-62nd District, were among those on hand for the Jan. 29 grand opening ceremony of the Black Willow Winery. The family-owned-and-operated winery is located in the heart of the Niagara Wine Trail at 5565 West Lake Road in Burt.
"Wine production is the fastest growing agricultural industry in the state, creating hundreds of good-paying jobs and attracting thousands of visitors to Western New York every year," Ceretto said. "The growth of our region's wineries will help strengthen the local economy and bolster tourism throughout Niagara County."
