“We are proud to introduce our Special Edition Niagara label celebrating the Bicentennial of the Battle of Lake Erie and Heineman Winery’s 125th anniversary. Look through the porthole and watch as Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry and his men row their longboat from the damaged USS Lawrence to the USS Niagara. Celebrate this historic battle which occurred near the Bass Islands 200 years ago, while enjoying our award winning Niagara wine. This label is showcased on a beautiful cobalt blue bottle with a red capsule. Put-in-Bay, South Bass Island will never forget Perry’s famous words, ‘Dont Give Up The Ship.'”
