Want to learn more about local wineries? This trip will visit a few wineries close to home to learn how they produce wine here in Ohio. The first stop is at Olde Schoolhouse Winery in Dover, Ohio. What was once a schoolhouse, was turned into a seed company, and is now a winery with a vineyard! The old schoolhouse was converted into a tasting room.
Our second stop will be Old Mason Winery in West Milton. The owners wanted to bring a winery to the community because of their love of visiting other wineries. What started out as a hobby has grown over time into this winery. Old Mason also offers appetizers such as summer sausage, cheese blocks, spreads, and crackers.
The final stop is a distinctive winery called AR Winery. We’ll visit the farm to sip their one-of-a-kind wines. Some of their fruity wines are apple, blueberry, strawberry, tropical, peach and more! AR Winery also has wood-fired brick oven pizzas. Come learn more about some local wineries on this unique tour!
