Sip a glass of wine and enjoy the autumn views at Le Petit Chevalier Vineyards and Farm Winery in Creola after a day of hiking in the nearby Hocking Hills State Park.

Ohio Wines in All Seasons

PARTNER CONTENT WITH OHIO WINES LOVE AT FIRST SIP:  As the seasons change, so do the unique winery experiences travelers can find across Ohio, from spring strolls to the beauty of the fall harvest. 

Ohio wineries are ideal for enjoying all year long. As the seasons change, so do the unique experiences you’ll find. Summer is the time for enjoying fresh air and patios with outdoor sips. Take in the fall foliage and breathe in the scent of grapes fresh from the fall harvest. Cozy up around the fire with dinner and wine in the winter. Take a stroll in spring as you watch the lush green return to the vineyards. No matter which season you visit, it’s always wine time in Ohio.


Take in the refreshing spring air at American Winery in Wauseon. Choose from its winning lineup of wines and craft beers and take a stroll through the vineyard, relax on the deck or hide out in the tasting room on blustery days. Watch the landscape turn to green at Autumn Rush Vineyard in Johnstown. Enjoy the view from the patio overlooking the pond while you sip a semi-dry Marquette or Rosaline rosé.


During the warmer months, nothing beats a stroll through the vineyards at Chateau Tebeau Winery. Owners Bob and Mary Tebeau built the winery on their 36-acre farm in Helena, including a beautiful stone patio and koi pond. Cool off with a frozen wine slushie at Brandeberry Winery in Enon. Choose from a variety of flavors, and be sure to add a dollop of whipped cream on top. Then relax outdoors to live music plus dinner from a local food truck.

After taking in the striking fall foliage in the Hocking Hills, you’ll want to stay overnight at Le Petit Chevalier Vineyards and Farm Winery in Creola. You can even book their winery loft on Airbnb — it's the perfect spot to relax after a day of hiking at nearby Lake Hope or Hocking Hills state parks. Savor those colorful fall views atop the hill at Vinoklet Winery north of Cincinnati, where over 30 acres of vineyards and lakes lay before you. Enjoy live music on the patio and sip a crisp semi-sweet Sunset Blush.


Cuddle up by the wood-burning fireplaces at Hundley Cellars in Geneva and warm up with a rich glass of Merlot or Harvest Red. Pair your wine with hearty comfort food like short rib pizzas or a cheese and meat board. Husband-and-wife duo Ed Sunkin and Christine Sabo converted a Christmas tree farm in Doylestown into Silver Run Vineyard and Winery, where you can cozy up with a glass of wine by the fireplace or the outdoor fire pit.
