Now considered "Ohio's Most Unique Winery," is the SCHOOL HOUSE WINERY, located in DOVER, OHIO. They are known as a "boutique winery" and are established in an old renovated one room schoolhouse built in 1886. On this first stop of our Progressive Luncheon we will have 4 wine tastings which also includes a tasty cheese and fruit plate.
On the banks of the beautiful Tuscarawas River, in WEST LAFAYETTE, is the enchanting, Tuscan-style, RAVEN'S GLENN WINERY AND ITALIAN RESTAURANT known as "Ohio's Crown jewel of Wineries." This is the second stop on our Progressive Luncheon journey. Our group will have a 30-minute tour prior to lunch with wine tasting. Our Buffet Lunch will include Three Meat Lasagna, Chicken Parmesan, House Salad, bread sticks, dipping oil and a 4 oz. Glass of Wine or Non-alcoholic Beverage.
The third stop on our Progressive Luncheon tour is our dessert stop. Here we will enjoy wine tasting and "wine cake" which is exclusive to the enchanting YELLOW BUTTERFLY WINERY in NEWCOMERSTOWN. This winery is housed in an almost 100-year-old bright yellow barn. Their porch has Amish rocking chairs and their multi-level deck offers views of some of the most beautiful landscapes in Ohio. You might enjoy a visit from a passing alpaca as they meander around the property. Be sure to stop in the NOOK gift shop for a look at the quality products make from the alpaca fur including Teddy Bears.
Of course, bottles of wine are available for purchase from all of the above wineries at your expense.
