You should take a road trip this Saturday. Where to? Well, try Georgetown, OH. I know, I hadn’t heard of it either, but it’s only about an hour away from downtown Cincinnati.
Think about it – the trees will be beautiful. And short of heading to upstate New York, where else are you going to get the chance to be a "leaf peeper" and have some wine at the end of it all? Wine? Of course. I wouldn’t tell you to take a road trip unless there was some wine involved.
The Wines, Vines, and Farms event is a wine festival to benefit the Southern Ohio Farmland Preservation Association (SOFPA). SOFPA is a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization that works with local farmers and landowners to discuss their options for conserving their land. One hundred percent of the ticket proceeds will go to the charity.
For only $10, you can sample Harmony Hill, Henke, Kinkead Ridge, Lakeside Vineyards, Meranda-Nixon, Renascent Vineyards, and Woodstone Creek. Your $10 gets you a souvenir glass and 7 tasting tickets. It’s a great chance to try locally grown (for the most part) wines and chat with the winemakers.
The event is happening from 11 am to 4 pm on Saturday, 10/25, on Courthouse Square in Georgetown. There’s also live music happening throughout the festival and a silent auction to benefit the charity. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a Quilt Barn and Covered Bridges tour happening nearby. Personally, I’d pass on the quilts, but I can’t get enough of covered bridges.
It’s an hour out. Take a slow lazy Saturday and enjoy the weather and the wine!
