Sunday June 16th

Fifth Annual Rib Festival
2:00 PM to 9:00 PM Stay tune for information about this event! We hope to have unique BBQ flavors and aromas presented by six Local Chefs! This has always been delicious but potentially messy!
Friday July 12th
Fourth Annual Registration and Time Trials for Tour of the Valley Bike Race
Once again, we are a proud Tour of the Valley sponsor! Details on the weekend to follow or check out their website at tourofthevalley.com
Sunday August 25th
Fifth Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival
Open 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Time of catering and Music to be determined
There will be a lot of kid-friendly entertainment and kid snacks and beverages throughout the afternoon, as well as music for the adults and food. Generally the hot air balloons arrive around 5:00-5:30-ish and will inflate near sunset and take off when allowed by the FAA guidelines, weather permitting of course. More information will be posted as it is firmed up.
We are planning to remedy the long Food and Tasting Bar lines that we experienced last year. Please come and let us know if we improved this year!
And as in the past, there is a $5.00 per person entrance fee for the Balloon Fest to help defray the entertainment and balloon costs - this is the only event with an admission fee.
We have a few other summer ideas in mind and will keep you posted if they come to fruition.
Weekend Musical Entertainment at Our Winery:
We have live entertainment every Friday and Saturday evening from 7:00 until 10:00 PM (there is no cover charge). The musicians will entertain you in the Banquet Room unless there is a scheduled rental and as soon as the weather permits, they will play outdoors on our patio.

Yes! We Recycle!!
Our large blue recycling bin will soon be outdoors but we still recycle indoors. 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.
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. And please, if you smoke, use the ashtrays and containers available for your cigarette and cigar butts. Thank you!
We do have Gift Cards that can be issued for almost any amount. These cards can be used on our winery products but not on Rachel's Catering menu.
Gift Baskets for any occasion can be custom-made with the wine(s) of your choice, gourmet wine cheese spreads, special crackers, chocolates and more. What a wonderful idea! Baskets range from $15.00 to $65.00 plus the cost of the wine. Need a larger basket? Not a problem - we can customize that too. It is preferred that you give us 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 do have 2 Bottle and 3 Bottle Wine Gift Boxes with a variety of attractive bows for your selection. The boxes are reasonably priced and definitely dress up your gift of wine. Ask to see our ribbon selection.
Do you want to have a good time and not have to worry about driving home? Well, BeMyDD's motto is "WE DRIVE YOUR CAR, SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO." They offer both a Personal Driver Service (only $12.50 per hour with a three hour minimum) as well as a Pick-Up Service. Plan in advance and it is pretty reasonable. Check them out at www.BeMyDD.com or call 1-877-U-BEMYDD (1-877-823-6933).

A REMINDER or Two:
It is against the Ohio State Law to consume any alcoholic beverages on our Winery property that was not purchased through our Winery. This includes drinking out in the parking lots 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.
