Breitenbach Dandelion Festival is a Must for Wine Lovers

Every May you will experience a unique festival at Breitenbach Winery, the Dandelion Festival.  They are one of the largest wineries in Ohio and they are the only one that I have come across that makes Dandelion Wine.  It is a very sweet, dessert wine.  During the festival they even make a Sangria using the Dandelion Wine.  They celebrate the Dandelion with a cook off, a craft fair, musical entertainment, food, and wine tasting.  Over the years the festival has gotten so large that they moved it to their Roadhouse Amphitheatre down the street from the winery.  They even have a 5K run.
In 2014 the festival starts at noon on May 2nd and runs all day on May 3rd.  This is also one time of year that you can take cellar tours and see where they make their award winning wines.  Find yourself a designated driver and come have some fun.
