This month we'll be visiting Columbus' hidden treasures....urban wineries!
Our first stop is Camelot Cellars Winery, which is owned by Janine Aquino, a fourth-generation wine professional. Originally located in the Short North, now it makes its home in Old Towne East. We will experience tastings and receive an overview of what Camelot has to offer.
Next we head to Signature Wines, which is really hidden in the east Columbus area. This winery specializes in traditional small scale wine making and the largest selection of personalized wine in Ohio. Kelly Harvey, the founder, passed away in 2016, but the winery continues to honor her memory with excellent wines.
Lastly we head to Brothers Drake Meadery, whose specialty is meads, which feature honey as their sugar source. Love the vision and mission of this winery: "Opportunity matters...we're all better off when we're all better off."
The route of our map is HERE.
As wineries can't give wine away, and we don't want to take up a lot of time buying tastings separately, I will purchase the wine tastings to be ready ahead of time so we can enjoy the presentations and return in a timely fashion. Don't forget to dress warmly and bring helmets, water and SNACKS for the trip.
