The Wine Festival at Wolf Creek Grist Mill in Loudonville is just around the corner. The 10th annual Festival takes place Saturday, June 8, 2013 from Noon to 11 p.m.
“The Wine Festival is always of highlight of the year,” remarked Mark Smith, President of Wolf Creek Grist Mill. “And last year we expanded our selection of wines to include international wines. They were a hit, so they will again be part of this year’s Festival. Of course, we will still feature favorite Ohio wines.”
Guests can also enjoy domestic beers and great food. Wine is available for tasting, by the glass or purchase a bottle to take to your table. Ohio wineries are scheduled to attend.
The Festival will again include the very popular Five Food Courses that pairs wine and food. For the pairing sessions, guests will be given an overview of pairing five incredible food and wine selections, everything from appetizer to dessert. Food, separate from the pairing session, is available for purchase throughout festival hours. Adding to the festivities will be live music.
New this year this the Martini Bar! In addition, free shuttle service will be provided to guests staying at area lodging: BlackFork Inn BnB, Mohican Adventures, Mohican River Inn, Mohican State Park Campground & Cabins (pickup at commissary,) Smith’s Campground, and Wally World Resort. Buses will run from 3 to 11 p.m.
For children there will be a scavenger hunt with prizes and free kids ice cream. The Festival is held under large on-site tents, so the wine tasting and fun go on rain or shine.
