For years the 2nd Street Market played home to this uniquely Ohio made Wine event, but after losing National City as a sponsor, the fest skipped 2009 and for 2010 has found a new home at the Boonshoft Museum of Discorery. The event takes place Friday, June 4, 4-9pm and Saturday, June 5, 2-9 pm.
You’ll be able to stroll the grounds of the Museum as you sample the unique vintages of 12 Ohio wineries, and enjoy food from regional vendors. Musical entertainment includes Khalid Moss on Friday night and Saturday will feature Dan Rivers at 1:45p, Tim Jennens & Randy Villars at 3:30pm, Anne Harpen at 5:15pm and conclude with Puzzle of Light 7:15pm.
Participants may order a taste, a glass, or even bottles of the locally grown wine selections; all bottles must leave the premises still sealed. The Adult Sampler admission of $25 (21+) includes 10 sampling tickets and a souvenir wine glass. Youth (16+) and designated driver admission to the grounds is $10. Admission for youth 3-15 is $3; children under 2 admitted free.
