Beautiful scenery, delicious wine, a relaxing atmosphere – it must be Napa. Nope, save your money on the airfare and head down the road to the Vineyard at Pine Lake in Columbiana. Part owner Joe Glista joined the podcast to talk about his family’s journey to becoming wine producers, a little history of Ohio wine and their newest venture into craft brewing. Joe is a wealth of knowledge with an incredible vision for what wine in our area can be. Hearing the care and thought he puts into each wine and beer makes you excited to try each one. The Vineyards at Pine Lake is truly a local gem that has a tremendous future.
Where can you go for one of the country’s top beer selections? Columbus? Cleveland? Pittsburgh? Nope, right here in Boardman at Vintage Estate Wine and Beer. If you want it, chances are they have it. And for all you moms celebrating the end of home schooling (like me), the wine selection is top notch too! Owner Jeff McDevitt swung by the studio to talk all about VE’s history, how they grew their selections and the amazing brewer community in our area. Take a listen and be sure to visit them at 7317 South Ave. in Boardman!
