Ohio Wine Country Vacations & Tours



Explore more than 20 Northeast Ohio wineries just minutes from The Lodge at Geneva. The Ashtabula and Lake County grape-growing regions produce more than 60 percent of all the grapes grown in the state, giving Northeast Ohio vineyards a widely acknowledged reputation as the area’s finest.

The Grand River Valley growing region is perched atop the remnants of glacial beaches, creating a rich and fertile soil that has served as a perfect place for Ohio vineyards to grow rich and flavorful grapes for generations. Along with delicious wines, these vineyards also feature restaurants, gift shops, tours, and activities in idyllic settings.

The Lodge’s wine shuttle offers safe, reliable transportation to and from local wine tastings and vineyards. The wine shuttle is available Wednesday through Sunday from spring to early fall, and Friday and Saturday from late fall through winter.
