At this point, I think it’s pretty safe to say that Ohio loves craft beverages.
Delaware County has put together an incredible “Vine & Bine Trail” featuring 10 wine and ale-makers, perfect for the adventurous, if not slightly boozy, spirit in all of us.
“Delaware County has some of the finest wines and craft beers in Ohio, and the Vine & Bine Trail is a terrific way to recognize and celebrate the county’s booming wineries and breweries,” said Joan Ayscue, communications assistant for Destination Delaware County Ohio. “Spanning from downtown Delaware to Powell, this trail is an easy way to sample these innovative wines and ales, while also exploring the region.”
If, like me, you’re wondering what the heck “bine” is, let me fill you in. The Vine & Bine trail is named after the stems that grow a wine’s grapes and a beer’s hops! Cute, right? The campaign hopes to bring awareness to the robust wine and beer scene that Delaware County has developed, as well as the local ingredients used to create the beverages!
“Many of the wineries and breweries use local ingredients in their winemaking and brewing processes,” Ayscue added. “The impact of these businesses goes beyond the patrons who frequent these establishments. It truly is a county-wide collaborative effort between the vintners/brewers and the farmers.”
Delaware County has four wineries and six breweries in the region that offer award-winning wine and craft beers. The drinks offered by the participating crafters offer everything from white wine to pale ales, and when I say there’s something for everyone, I really mean it.
“When people think of craft wine and beer, they may not initially think of Delaware County,” Ayscue said. “However, we have some of the best wineries and breweries in the Midwest here. This trail is a fantastic way to position Delaware County as a leader in the craft beverage scene, and attract wine and beer enthusiasts to the area.”
