20 Reasons We Love Ohio
Northeast Ohio's wine country
Some 45 miles east of Cleveland, nearly two dozen wineries -- many of them award-winning -- thrive along Lake Erie and in the nearby region, hiding amid old-fashioned covered bridges and shore towns trapped in time. The wineries add a cosmopolitan flair to northeast Ohio's long-established resort scene in towns such as Geneva-on-the-Lake.
