Vintage Ohio is a two-day festival that showcases Ohio wine, food, and music. The event, held at Lake Metroparks' Farmpark just east of Cleveland, features wine samples, Ohio food vendors, craft exhibits and demonstrations, and food samples from area restaurants. The 2013 dates are August 2-3.
More than 30 Ohio wineries, including Chalet Debonne and Old Mill Winery, are participating in the 2013 event. Wineries will offer samples as well as wine to purchase by the glass, bottle, and case.

In addition, a number of Ohio food manufacturers will have exhibits at the event. 2011 participants are yet to be announced.
