We’ve added a few new companies since the beginning of this year so come and visit with representatives from various companies. The vendor lineup may change a little but look for Mary Kay Cosmetics, Pampered Chef, BeautiControl, Gold Canyon Candles, Origami Owl, Tastefully Simple, Arbonne, Bling It On, Thirty One and more! There may be fresh baked goods that can be purchased and enjoyed at home.

Make sure to mark your calendars for our special summertime winery events!

Sunday August 24th
Sixth Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival

Open 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM

We do charge an admission fee for this event. There is a $5.00 per person entrance fee for anyone over the age of 10 years for the Balloon Fest.
This helps to defray the costs of the balloons (10 are scheduled for this year) and their fees, the kid’s various entertainments and the music. This is our only winery event that has an admission fee.

Keep in mind that this is a kid-friendly event with clowns, face painting on the gazebo and three artistic painting sessions for the children in the pavilion this year. Unfortunately there will not be a Bounce -Around this year (based on recent news accounts of accidents in the United States).

There will be a variety of food. The Tropical Sugar Shack will be here from 1:00 until 9:00 with cotton candy and shaved ice (Adults – add a little bit of wine – Delicious and Refreshing!). And the Berlin Township Fire Department will be parking vehicles and selling kid-friendly snacks and drinks all day.

We are implementing changes with the food so you do not experience the long lines that you may have experienced in the past. We want you to be able to order your food and have it served to you right away. In addition to the food that Dan will be preparing, we also have two additional food vendors. Menus will be simple but good. An outside bar for only wine bottle sales and beer will begin serving by 4:00.

Rick Kohut, our BalloonMeister again this year, will display his balloon gondola at about 4:00 PM so you can see what the balloonists and guests fly in. This is a photo opportunity for a family and especially for your children to get inside the basket. Then, depending upon weather, nine additional pilots with their colorful hot air balloons will arrive for possible flights from the winery between 6:30 - 7:30pm. Balloon inflation and launch is totally regulated by FAA guidelines and the weather. The winery has absolutely NO say as to when or if the balloons will launch. In years past, the balloons have generally inflated about 6:30 PM and have taken off between 7:00 and 7:30 PM. It is a beautiful sight.

Interested in a balloon ride? Please contact Rick directly at 330-413-5587 or email him at for details. A balloon ride is $180.00 per person (this is discounted from the normal $225 fee). Basket space is commonly shared and a maximum number of rider slots are available on a first-contact basis. Children under 12 years of age cannot ride; age 13-17 must be accompanied by a parent. Payment is by cash or check only - payable directly to your assigned pilot. Be aware that each pilot reserves the right to deny access to their aircraft to anyone who is not acceptably fit or capable of a flight… so please, if you are planning on flying, enjoy soft drinks, tea or water for a couple of hours before takeoff. You will be expected to sign a pilot insurance Waiver Release of Responsibility. Each pilot attending is highly experienced and personally selected specific for this event. Flights and rides are never guaranteed as each pilot is in full command of their own aircraft and has the discretion to choose.

If you do schedule a flight, please wear cotton clothing and tennis shoes (no sandals or flip flops). Bring a light jacket just in case it gets chilly. Don't forget your camera as well. Hope to see you there!

Yes! We Recycle!!

Our large blue recycling bin just came outdoors and we do continue to recycle indoors and out. Aluminum cans, plastic bottles and cups, plastic forks, knives and spoons will be recycled, as well as wine and beer bottles and the cardboard containers. Thanks for working with us to protect our environment! The Green Team (through the Sheriff's Department) visits each week and picks up all of our glass, plastic, aluminum, paper and cardboard recyclables.

Our our main patio area (closest to the building) and the gray gazebo are designated as Non-Smoking" areas. For those of you who are now smoking e-cigarettes or e-pipes - we still consider that as "smoking" so please follow our guidelines.

Please use the picnic table area or the parking lot areas for smoking. During inclement weather, by Ohio law, the covered entrance way cannot be used for smoking as the law states that smokers must stand 20 feet from the building when smoking. For those of you who are now smoking e-cigarettes or e-pipes - you must follow the same guidelines. And please, if you smoke the real thing, use the ashtray bins and containers on the picnic tables for your cigarette and cigar butts; not the concrete flower pots. Thank you!

Gift Ideas!

We do have Gift Cards that can be issued for almost any amount. These cards may be used on our winery products but not on Rachel's Catering menu.

Gift Baskets can be custom-made with the wine(s) of your choice, gourmet cheese & crackers, chocolates and much more for any occasion. Perfect for a Business Thank You, a Welcome to our Neighborhood, Get Well Soon, So Appreciative of Your Help, a Happy Retirement, an Engagement or Wedding Gift! Baskets prices begin at $15.00 and can go up to $65.00 plus the cost of the wine that you select. Do you need a larger basket? Not a problem - we can customize that too. Please give us at least a day or two notice and a lovely basket with your choice of wine will be ready for pick up. Basket deliveries within Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties are available for a small delivery fee.

We also have 2 Bottle and 3 Bottle Gift Boxes that dress up your gift of wine. A bow is included. The boxes are reasonably priced ($1.75 for a two bottle and $2.00 for a three bottle box) and they definitely will make your gift of wine stand out! Check them out in the Tasting Bar area.

Just a Reminder:

It is against the Ohio State Law to consume any alcoholic beverages on the Winery property that was not purchased through our Winery. This includes drinking out in the parking lots, at the Gazebo and at the two pavilions. Please, do not jeopardize our permits by bringing your alcohol onto our premise. We do reserve the right to inspect any beverage or cooler container.

Did you know....

As of September 2006, Ohio lawmakers approved the "Merlot to Go" law. Ohio wineries and restaurants may now re-cork your open bottle of wine. Purchase a bottle to enjoy on premise and pour a glass. Then let us put a fresh cork in the bottle and you can take the rest home with you to enjoy later.
