wine tasting weekends allow people to do wine tasting, cheese tasting, and indulge in gourmet dinners. Each winery is a little different. Some feature sweeter wines, some feature more dry wines, and others are known for their cuisine that is paired with wine. An Ohio bed and breakfast in Amish Country offers guests the full experience. It starts with a designated driver so that you can sample as much wine as you like. The tours always include at least one stop at a cheese factory so that guests may purchase their favorite cheese to pair with the wine that they purchase. Some of the oldest cheese factories in the State are in Amish Country Ohio. Some tours include a visit to a chocolate factory too! The tours include a winery tour. Learn how wine is made, what makes a good wine, and get your questions answered about the wine making process and bottling process. For the innkeepers the favorite stop on the tours is Ravens Glenn Winery. Guests start with a winery tour, participate in a wine tasting, and end the evening with a fantastic dinner chosen by the chef who has paired various wines to accompany each course.
