At Maize Valley Winery and Craft Brewery, fall means there’s always something to do. The 750-acre farm east of Hartville celebrates the season from September 15 through October 28 with special events such as a hot-air balloon lift-off and an Oktoberfest weekend, plus its fall standards: an 8-acre corn maze, wagon rides to a pumpkin patch, campfire sites, pumpkin cannon demonstrations and a straw-bale mountain.
It’s almost impossible to feel stressed out sitting on the patio of The Winery at Perennial Vineyards. Nestled on farmland in Tuscarawas Township, not far from Navarre, the rustic winery invites you to grab a glass and maybe a slice of pizza and just relax.
Gervasi Vineyard keeps growing. Plans were announced earlier this year to build a 24-suite boutique hotel and a distillery at the 55-acre estate, which already boasts several luxury overnight options and restaurants along with its 6-acre vineyard.
Wine used to be a very classy drink—or at least that’s how I interpreted it when I was younger. All of the names sounded so fancy: Sauvignon blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot. So it must be fancy people drinking them, right?
