Visit Ohio Wineries this Summer

John Christ Winery to be at Vintage Ohio

John Christ Winery to be at Vintage Ohio Festival

Ohio is not quite as well known as some of the larger wine producing states, but they offer some delightful experiences. For wine enthusiasts and wine lovers who enjoy exploring wine, when traveling through Ohio this summer, it’s a good idea to discover what the Ohio’s wine industry has to offer.

Of course, we want you to check out the review articles of the Ohio wineries we have visited and written about. Wine Trail Traveler has visited more than 50 Ohio wineries. Also be sure to check out the Ohio Wine Association website.

According to the Ohio Wine Association website, Ohio has six wine trails with almost 100 participating wineries. The trails include:

  • Lake Erie Vines & Wine Trail (25 wineries)
  • Shores & Islands Wine Trail (20 wineries)
  • Capital City Wine Trail (12 wineries)
  • Canal Country Wine Trail (21 wineries)
  • Appalachian Wine Trail (8 wineries)
  • Ohio River Valley Wine Trail (10 wineries)

The wines you discover in Ohio may include vitis vinifera, vitis labrusca, French hybrid or fruit wines. While tasting wines keep in mind what kind of food you would like to match it with. Wine with food and friends embraces the spirit of wine.

Discover Ohio wines at Vintage Ohio Wine Festival

Discover Ohio wines at the Vintage Ohio Wine Festival in August

If you will travel in Ohio on August 5 or 6, plan to attend the Vintage Ohio Wine Festival. The event takes place in Kirtland, Ohio. Sixteen wineries will have a presence at the festival. Types of wines to enjoy at the festival include Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Riesling as well as fruit wines made from strawberries, blackberries, peaches and raspberries. Vintage Ohio includes food, cooking demonstrations, live music, artisans, three breweries and more. If you enjoy art and crafts look for handmade jewelry, soap,  artisan candles, pottery, temporary natural tattoos, wine glass holders, chocolates, dips and much more. All of this sounds like a fun time to me.

    Wine kills human pathogens and has no history of food safety issues, and since licensing passed in a 2009 budget bill (by surprise) we have been subject to food processing licensing and regulation by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. This is duplicate of licensing and regulation as provided in Ohio liquor codes. Many other states exempt from this sort of duplicate licensing and regulation. Ohio’s regulation is superfluous, unnecessary, duplicate and also discriminates against Ohio wineries by wineries from out of state that are not subject to the same food processing licensing and regulatory costs that sell wholesale in Ohio. As a traditional artisan winemaker that values microbial diversity in the winery environment I also find the regulation is in direct opposition to my winemaking principles. http://www.FreeTheWineries.com or http://www.facebook.com/FreeTheWineries
