Lake Erie Wine Festival

Today is the Summer Solstice, better known as the first day of summer, and the weather seems to be (so far) cooperating beautifully. If you're looking for a fun day trip this weekend, take a drive out to Geneva for the Lake Erie Wine Festival.

Held on the shores of Lake Erie at Geneva-on-the-Lake, visitors will be able to take in the sights while sampling some of the finest wine in Northeast Ohio. Sixteen Ohio-based wineries will bring their best red and white wines with them to be sampled during the weekend.

New to the festival is a wine tasting adventure. For an additional $5, guests will have the chance to participate in a brief wine class and learn the basics of making quality wine and how to use a wine wheel. Visitors will be able to explore the wineries and sample special wines in one of three different "adventure flights."

Wine related artists and crafters will also have their wares on display throughout the festival.

Adult wine tasting tickets cost $25 and include admission, one wine glass, one tasting guide and 15 sampling tickets. Designated drivers and guests under 21 can purchase tickets for $10.

Lake Erie Wine Festival hours:
Saturday, June 22 from 1-8 p.m.
Sunday, June 23 from 1-8 p.m.
