Departure city: Worthington
After a late morning departure, we venture to Maize Valley Winery & Craft Brewery in Hartville, where you will have lunch on your own. Upon arrival, you are given a ticket that can be redeemed for four wine tastings at your leisure. Maize Valley grows several varieties of grapes in their vineyards, with a focus primarily on French American Hybrids such as La Crescent, Vignoles, Traminette, Frontenac and Frontenac Gris. These varieties have proven to withstand our harsh Ohio winters and produce award-winning Ohio wines. They also grow Concord, a native American variety, known for its large purple fruit used in grape juice and jelly.
Next on our journey through Ohio’s wine country is Breitenbach Wine Cellars. Nestled among the rolling, picturesque hills of Ohio’s Amish countryside is Der Marktplatz. It's also home to Breitenbach Wine Cellars, an exclusive producer of an extensive array of award-winning grape, fresh fruit, berry wines and Dandelion wine. We will tour the facility, learn about their wine-making production, and sample their award winning wines.
Our last stop of the day is at one of Ohio’s most unique and unusual wineries, the Yellow Butterfly Winery. Enjoy their collection of sweet, semi-sweet, dry and fruit wines. Guests can relax on the deck overlooking the hillside where alpacas graze. Later, enjoy a wine tasting in their bright yellow barn before sitting down to a barbecue dinner. It's a perfect way to end the day.
