2016 Father’s Day Capital City Wine Tour

May 19th, 2016 by

Sure you can take dear old dad out to dinner, give him a pair of slippers, and a card to celebrate Father’s Day in Columbus. But how about doing something completely different this year? Ohio is blessed with an abundance of excellent wineries. Many of them are located just a short drive from Columbus on what’s called the “Capital City Wine Trail.”

Whether your dad is a wine connoisseur, a wine “newbie,” or just enjoys a nice glass of wine every now and then, an excursion to one or more of these nearby wineries listed below is sure to be a unique Father’s Day treat dad won’t soon forget.

But before you head out on your Father’s Day Central Ohio wine adventure, we strongly urge you to drink responsibly. Use a designated driver to avoid the possibility of a DUI that would certainly ruin your Father’s Day. And we wouldn’t want that. Please contact the wineries directly for their hours of operation as some wineries are closed on Sundays.
