    For the ninth year, the North Market has gathered eighteen of Ohio’s finest wineries to celebrate fine local cuisine and vino at the North Market Food & Ohio Wine Festival Presented by PNC. The festival will take place the weekend of July 9-11. Sponsoring organizations include PNC Bank, Ohio Grape Industries, Master Clean, Ohio Magazine, Yelp and Columbus Alive.

    The Food & Ohio Wine Festival will kick-off on Friday night with a special preview party from 7-10 p.m. Tickets to the event are $20 and include a commemorative wine glass, 10 tasting tickets and a $5 North Market gift certificate. Proceeds benefit the historic North Market. Columbus celebrities will serve as guest pourers for the wineries. Men of Steel, a local steel drum band, will lend their cool Caribbean tunes to the festivities. Discount coupons good for $5 off Preview Party admission are available at local PNC branches starting in July.

    The following wineries from around Ohio will offer select wines by the taste (50 cents to $2.00 each), glass, bottle and case: Chalet Debonne Vineyard, Madison; Ferrante Winery, Geneva; Firelands Winery, Sandusky; Henke Winery, Cincinnati; Laurello Vineyards, Geneva; Maize Valley Winery, Hartville; Markko Vineyard, Conneaut; Meranda-Nixon Winery, Ripley; Mon Ami Winery, Port Clinton; Raven’s Glenn Winery, West Lafayette; Soine Vineyards, Powell; St. Joseph Vineyards, Thompson; Stoney Ridge Winery, Bryan; Troutman Vineyards, Wooster; The Winery at Wolf Creek, Norton; Valley Vineyards, Morrow; Viking Vineyard, Kent and Wyandotte Winery, Columbus.

    Throughout the weekend there will be live music on two stages and cooking demonstrations in the well-appointed Ohio Proud mobile kitchen. The kitchen consists of a 24-foot trailer that has the look and feel of a home kitchen with three large screen monitors to display the demonstrations to the audience. Chefs from local restaurants and North Market merchants will conduct the demonstrations and samplings. Additional activities include the Saturday Farmers Market and a Sunday marketplace featuring local artisans and Ohio Proud vendors.

    “The quality of Ohio-made wine continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Our festival is the perfect opportunity to sample the offerings from 18 Ohio wineries, so you can see for yourself how great these wines have become,” said David Wible, Executive Director of the North Market. “Eating locally has become part of our everyday routine, now you can drink locally and not have to sacrifice quality or taste.”

    Festival hours are Friday, July 9, 7-10 p.m., Saturday, July 10, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sunday, July 11, 1 – 6 p.m. Preview Party admission is $20 with $5 discount coupons available at local PNC Bank branches.

    Glad to see PNC is continuing the support NCB gave to this event.

    Shan’t make it this year as I will be investigating the local wines of … Missouri. Will miss visiting some of my peeps.




    This is such a great event, really looking forward to this year’s offerings.



    Really enjoyed this event last year despite it being held in a downpour.

    hmmm more expensive than previous years, unless i’m mistaken; isn’t going to stop me though :D

    I was really saddened by this years event. Wine samples had doubled or tripled in price from previous years with every sample needing at least two tickets.

    Previous years it was 1 tickets with 2 ticket samples being used for the more expensive wines like the ice wines.

    Makes no sense to me to do that, maybe it’s just me but i’ll happily burn a ticket on a wine I have no idea about but if a sample is going to hit me for around $2 then i’m a little less inclined to be adventurous. Perhaps I’m just too poor for this festival now ;)
