National Ohio Day

Happy National Ohio Day! Have you ever been to Ohio? I haven't, but someday I'll go so I can cross another state of my list - you all know it's one of my goals to visit all 50! I decided to research some of the best wineries and restaurants in Ohio and share them with you all.

Hundley Cellars

This is a winery in Harpersfield Township and "genuine, old-fashioned hospitality" is what you'll get here. This is a family owned business started by siblings to unite their family again. They bought the land, planted their own vineyard, and opened in 2014. They have so many different wines that all sound delicious and unique - I want to try them all! They also have small plates and snacks to pair with your wine. I'd definitely want to get their cheese and meat board - in case you didn't know, something Ohio is known for is their cheese, so I can't miss that. They have live music on Saturdays and Sundays, so it seems like the perfect place to spend the afternoon one weekend. I can't wait to make a stop here!

The Flying Fig

This small eatery is a "farm to table/vineyard to glass", amazing looking spot in Cleveland. The owner, Karen Small, also happens to be the executive chef! How cool is that. She wants her restaurant and winery to feel like home, and from what I can see it sure looks homely! Along with the reds and whites, they also offer two different roses that sound delicious - one French style and one Sicilian. Can I get a bottle of each please? ;)

Wyandotte Winery

Wyandotte is located in Columbus and looks like the cutest place ever! Also family owned, Wyandotte makes their wines by hand. This seems like the perfect place to go if you're just getting into wine and you're not sure what you like. The owners and staff are happy to help you find something you find delicious. Although they grow their own grapes for wines and source other ingredients locally, they even import some things from as far away as Chile! There is such cool history and a homey feel to this place that I just can't not go.

The Winery at Versailles

This winery looks absolutely amazing! It's located in Versailles (Ohio), and has also won the award of Best Winery in Ohio for five years straight. They grow their own grapes, and they have other sources for grapes that grow the fruit exclusively for them. They have sooooo many different wines that there's bound to be something you'll enjoy. Their Spiced Apple wine, as well as their Blueberry Rain really caught my eye. They offer wine tastings, food, and so many different events that all seem so fun. They have paint classes, themed dinners, trivia nights, and more! It's perfect for a date night or girls night out.

Chez Francois

Two words: wine. dinners. A tasting menu and wines to pair it with. What sounds better than that?! I would definitely pick this restaurant for a date night, possibly an anniversary or Valentine's Day. It just gives me romantic vibes and I love it. Their wine list is pages long... I'd have to go hundreds of times to try them all, but I can't complain about that. This restaurant has won awards and is definitely well recognized by lots of people. It's in Vermilion, and it's definitely the place I'll go during my first night exploring that town. I can't wait!

Refectory Restaurant

Live music, wine tastings, food... this places has it all. Located in the heart of Columbus, this is definitely the place to go. I love restaurants that change their menus seasonally, and this place does just that! It has been awarded twice, has a French executive chef, professional sommeliers to pair your meal with the perfect wine, and so much more. It'd love to go with a group of friends to enjoy a night of good food, wine, laughs and music/shows. It's the perfect place for celebrating life. Their wine list isn't too shabby either ;)
