Native American tribes of Massachusetts, Maine, and Connecticut cooked clams and lobsters in sand pits as far back as 2000 years ago. Thus starting the tradition of the clambake. As settlers from New England made their way to the Connecticut Western Reserve (now Northeast Ohio) in the early 1800's, one of the traditions they brought with them was the fall clambakes.
Three local wineries are partaking in this fall tradition in the coming weeks. Each have a unique take on the menu's so you can hit them all. (Reservations required)
