Wine Events


2013 is certainly flying by! I’m not sure if it’s Spring, Summer or Fall any more so it’s hard to believe it’s already June! The good news is the official start to summer is right around the corner – and that means one thing to me! The Annual Summer Solstice, Wine, Art and Music Festival is almost here!

Sarah’s Vineyard Winery and Art Gallery in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio will be hosting the 11th Annual Summer Solstice, Wine, Art and Blues Festival from June 21st – 23rd. Located directly across from Blossom Music Center at 1204 W. Steels Corners Road, nestled in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Sarah’s Winery offers a relaxing atmosphere and for this festival, there’s a great selection of wine, artists, food and music.
