The Mister and I received two tickets to attend the Vintage Ohio Wine Festival so I could share about it, and it was definitely one of my favorite trips of the summer! So be sure to pin this post so that you can add this to your bucket list next summer! Now for all the deets!

 

What is The Vintage Ohio Wine Festival?

The Vintage Ohio Wine Festival took place at Lake Metroparks Farmpark this year from August 2-3 and was produced by the Ohio Wine Producers Association. There, we found splendid wineries from all over Ohio and got to sample as many as we could! Plus, we had some great food and enjoyed the entertainment!

One of the first things you see when you get there is the ferris wheel. The colorful wheel is a fabulous touch as you can enjoy all the scenery on a ride. It is definitely a highlight of the festival. There is also some great vendors, which I can’t wait to share about the new plus size boutique I found from going.

If you want to get away from the crowds, there are plenty of places to go to relax, like near the pond. The mister and I enjoyed chatting and watching everything from afar as we recharged a bit.

What Makes this a Great Date?

Since I have a lot of food allergies, the whole dinner and a movie thing doesn’t work well for us. Therefore, I love a creative date idea. Wine tasting is one of our favorite date ideas too! The music, the ferris wheel, the music…well…it all adds a certain whimsical feel.

The mister and I enjoyed traveling from tent to tent, comparing notes, and sampling the wines. We even found a few new wineries to visit for future dates! While it was crowded, the crowd had a food feel to it, and I felt really relaxed. Okay, so the wine helped, but seriously, people were really nice!

Lines moved quickly, and we even talked to some of the other attendees to get ideas on which wineries to try next. We also got tips on which wines to try! It was definitely a good time overall!

What to Wear on a date like this?

I seriously got compliments on my outfit ALL DAY LONG. So…of course, I have to talk about what I wore.

With it being summer, I wanted to keep it light. However, when wearing dresses in the summer, beware of summer breezes! This dress from The Flourish Market is just the right length. It also works for summer as it is fairly light. However, I plan to get a lot of wear this fall with it too!

Since it was an outdoor event, I made sure to grab my favorite summer hat to protect my scalp. I found this cute hat at Apricot Lane while exploring Pinecrest this summer! Because I burn easily, I tend to wear hats when I am outdoors for an extended time.

 

Final Thoughts

If you live or plan to visit Northeast Ohio or Cleveland next summer, make sure you add the Vintage Ohio Wine Festival to your list of things to do. You can also find them on Facebook and Instagram, so be sure to check them out!
