Ohio Wineries & Winery Tours
The history of Ohio wineries goes back to the 1800s when the first grapes were planted to take advantage of the rich growing climate and soil in the region. The wines produced by the first wineries quickly became popular around the country because of its unique flavor. The wines produced at this time had a uniquely sweeter flavor that was well accepted in the wine drinking world.
Ohio wineries took some time to return to prominence after prohibition was repealed in the 1930s. For decades the wineries struggled to bring wine to the public and sustain the vineyards. It wasn’t until the sixties that the vineyards finally managed to make a comeback on the stage as a contender in the American wine market. There are now more than forty wineries across the state of Ohio with a variety of wines that can please all tastes.
A trip through the Canal County Ohio Wine Trail is a great way to explore the wineries in the state. Wineries offer entertainment in the state along with the festivals and events throughout the year that celebrate Ohio wines. Ohio may not be the first place you think of for a wine country holiday, but it should be on the list of every serious wine lover who wants to sample the wines of the United States. Wagon rides, pumpkins and much more make the time spent in Ohio wine country an event for the whole family.
Ohio can also be a romantic getaway for couples looking for a place to go away for some rest and relaxation. Explore the vineyards and stroll the trails in this lovely part of the country. Wine tastings are available at various wineries in the state, but you will have to check with each winery for a schedule to make sure that you visit each winery on your list. With more than forty wineries in the area, there are plenty to visit and enjoy.
