Ohio Fall Wine Frolic Weekends

Beginning this weekend, October 11 and 12, twelve Akron/Canton Ohio area wineries are sponsoring the Fall Wine Frolic, a self-driving wine tour. Each stop will feature a selection of Ohio wines as well as appetizers and beverages for the designated driver. The $45/couple ($35 for a single) fee includes a souvenir Schott Zwiesel crystal wine glass and a picnic tote loaded with a corkscrew, cutting board, cheese knife, and cloth napkins. Among the participating wineries are Breitenbach Wine Cellars in Dover, Swiss Heritage Winery in Dover, and Viking Vinyards in Kent.

The wine frolic continues October 17, 18 and October 24, 25. Several area bed and breakfast inns and small hotels are offering special rates for those wishing to spend the night. For more information, visit Ohio

Of course, while you're thinking about wine, be sure to visit "Drink Local Wine," the new Web site devoted to regional (including Ohio) wines.
