MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Visitors to Vermont can now take a culinary route through the Champlain Valley by visiting food producers, restaurants, farms, breweries and wineries on the state's new tasting trail.

Officials say the Lake Champlain Tasting Trail is part of a larger effort to develop an international culinary trail in Vermont, New York, Ontario and Quebec that would focus on farm and food experiences.

Vermont's trail includes sites in Addison, Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle counties that meet certain criteria and standards. Trail goers can chose their route and stops by checking out participating sites online on diginvt.com.
