Ohio Wineries are Featured in Spring Fling Winery Tour

Ohio Wine Producers has an upcoming event featuring Ohio wineries.  It is called Spring Fling and will run the weekends of March 25-26, April 1-2, and April 8-9, 2011.  Sixteen wineries are featured in this self driving tour that includes wine and food samples at each winery.  When you purchase a ticket you will receive Schott Zwiesel crystal glasses and a bottle-shaped cork cage as a gift.  Sip your favorite vintages as you visit each winery.  The Spring Fling will run from noon to 6 p.m. on the dates listed.  You can purchase tickets and make reservations through Ohio Wine Producers.  

Many of the wineries are located near Amish Country which gives you the added bonus of stopping by cheese factories and Coblentz Chocolates to purchase some things to compliment the wines that you buy.  The wineries include:
