Day Tripping: Ohio Wineries

While prepping an ideal weekend away a few week’s back I had a great realization: Northeastern Ohio is a really great place to live when you’re trying to plan some quick summer fun. Access to the lake, the islands and plenty more means there are endless options for great things to do outside of the city just a quick car ride away. 


A fun little getaway, no matter where you go, is a trip to one of the many Ohio Wineries. Living in Downtown Cleveland means I can go east or west for one of these little trips – and a few years ago my Wine Club took a limo bus to Geneva (a trip to the East) for the day making quick stops at Debonne, Ferrante, and Harpersfield Winery to name a few. It was the best girls day getaway/staycation!


Taking a weekend away, the other way ( a trip to the West), there’s plenty of stops on the way up to Kelleys Island that make for another ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle – and when you jump off that ferry on Kelleys, your final stop can be… the Kelleys Island Wine Company. A perfect kick off to a weekend – stop in for a tasting or grab a bottle of wine and your picnic blanket to watch one of the most picturesque sunsets out there!


Heading to the Islands, there’s plenty of stops along the way. Use Ohio Wines Shore map to help – but I recommend stopping at Stoney Ridge.

Wherever you go and whatever you do – have fun and make sure to enjoy responsibly!
