Barrel Run Crossing Winery & Vineyard in Rootstown, Ohio is one of those wineries that’s just fun to visit. On a beautiful sunny Ohio day we hopped on the motorcycle and journeyed to the countryside. A quaint boutique winery with a relaxed atmosphere and a friendly staff all add up for an enjoyable afternoon. But, lets talk about their wines too!

Patterson Fruit Farm in Chesterland, Ohio and has been a local favorite for many years. Patterson’s is set in the beautiful Ohio countryside and is open year round. When you walk into the main building the first sight you will behold are the many bags filled with big beautiful apples such as Jonathan, Honey Crisp, McIntosh and so many other varieties to choose from, grab a few samples to try.
