Natural Areas Wine Tours

Wine tasting with a wild side!
Co-sponsored by The Cleveland Museum of Natural History and Ohio Wine Producers Association

Explore northern Ohio's wild beauty and its local wineries on a one-of-a-kind wine tour. Each date offers a naturalist-led hike through a spectacular natural area followed by a wine-tasting opportunity at a local winery. Bring your enthusiasm for the great outdoors, good wine and good company too!

Each trip begins with a hike from 10 am until noon. Participants are sent maps and drive themselves to the nature preserve. After hiking, we’ll proceed to the winery for lunch and wine tasting. Trips are limited to 30 participants. $35 per person.
