When my girlfriends decided to come visit me for a weekend I wanted to share with them some of Ohio's beauty.    I decided to head over to wine country to enjoy a fall day with lush farmland and bountiful vineyards.  I picked out a few of my favorite places there and off we went.    We headed out from my hometown, Solon, Oh around 3pm on a Saturday afternoon and continued on for about 35 minutes to a place in Madison, Ohio called Laurentia Vineyard.  Laurentia Vineyard was our first visit of the day.

Laurentia Winery

Laurentia has an exquisite setting and is a winery that houses the only concrete tanks in the area for aging wine.  It's on an ancient land mass in North America, and named after the Laurentide Glacier.  

 

Next, 5 minutes down the road we stopped at a place called Debonne' Vineyards

Debonne Vineyards

Debonne Vineyards is the largest estate winery in Ohio, consisting of 175 acres of vines.  Not only do you taste their award wining wines but for the craft beer connoisseur there is an attached microbrewery as well. 

 

Next, another 5 minutes down the road is M Cellars

M Cellars

M Cellars is a place that does not do a lot of marketing because they rely on word of mouth.  This winery was started by the owner tinkering with wine making in his garage. It's a passion project of wining wines, producing mostly dry reds; pinot noirs to meritage blends.  

 

Next, we walked across the street to the Red Eagle Distillery

Red Eagle distillery is crafting spirits that equate to Ohio Bourbon, Vodka, Rye, Brandy and also making ten individual craft beers.  They distill their spirits in a barn that dates back to the 1800's.  While drinking a fall cocktail, pumpkin spice martini we had beautiful views of surrounding agriculture that emitted history as far back as prohibition time.    

 

Last, a  10 minute drive to Harpersfield Vineyard

https://www.harpersfield.com/

 

 

Harpersfield Vineyard is a farm and destination of it's own and one you need to explore for yourself.  It lies in the heart of Northeast Ohio in the Grand River Valley.  

 

Yesterday led to a short drive from Solon, to Ohio wineries and distillers in the Great Valley River region.  Winery's that most certainly progressed into the 21st century for your enjoyment of award winning wines to discover, distilled spirits and craft beers.  Our day made for an engaging adventure of great estate wines, spirits, craft beers, cozy fireplaces, cheese plates, music and picturesque views that I would recommend you try when considering an adventure with loved ones and friends, near and far.
