This year,  many of the wines featured on Festival Field have been awarded the OQW seal.  This means the grapes were grown in Ohio and of course the wine produced in the cellars of our state.  This program was created by the state of Ohio with advice from the researchers and scientists at The Ohio State University who have developed the criteria for judging and bring in nationally recognized experts to evaluate the wines for their best and most appropriate attributes.

Here are some of the wines being poured, many of which will be paired with the gourmet foods (learn more about this new initiative here).

  • Ferrante Winery’s Grand River Valley 2010 Pinot
  • St. Joseph Vineyard’s Grand River Valley 2008 Pinot Noir Reserve
  • Valley Vineyards’ Ohio River Valley 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Breitenbach Winery’s Lake Erie 2008 Merlot
  • Debonne Vineyards’ Grand River Valley 2007 Chardonnay
  • Klingshirn Winery’s Lake Erie White Riesling
  • Grand River Cellars’ Grand River Valley 2009 Cabernet Franc
  • Old Firehouse Winery’s Lake Erie 2010 Riesling
