Wild About Wine Spirits Trail

Wine and craft beer enthusiasts have a new reason to discover Southeast Ohio’s Appalachian hills. Three neighboring counties – Guernsey, Coshocton, and Muskingum – recently launched a new spirits trail called “Wild About Wine” that highlights the region’s most prestigious wineries and breweries.

The trail allows visitors to be “trailblazers” – much like the early pioneers were. Fourteen wineries and breweries may be visited in any order. Participating locations within the three counties are Baltic Mill Winery, Georgetown Vineyard, Guernsey Brewhouse, Headley Inn Winery and Vineyard, Killing Tree Winery, Rainbow Hills Winery, Brewery & Pizzeria, Raven’s Glenn Winery, Stone Crest Vineyard, Weasel Boy Brewing Company, White Eyes Creek Winery, Wooly Pig Farm Brewery, Y-Bridge Brewing Company, Yellow Butterfly Winery and YOLO Winery.

“We’re just a quick trip from Columbus, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh, yet an entire world away from the big cities,” Cambridge/Guernsey County Visitors & Convention Bureau Executive Director Debbie Robinson said.

While the region is wild about its wines and craft brews, travelers are encouraged to get off the trail and experience all there is to see and do. One attraction in particular – The Wilds – spans over 10,000 acres in southeast Ohio and is one of the largest conservation centers in the world. Threatened and endangered species roam open pastures with endless vistas and provide an ideal setting to study ecological recovery and restoration. Visitors may discover The Wilds through a variety of unforgettable tours, including open-air safaris, zipline tours, horseback tours, and many more. Amenities include a frontline Café, indoor and outdoor seating, a gift shop, handicap accessible, as well as organic and environmentally focused tour packages.

Robinson noted that each county has numerous unique must-see, do, and eat experiences. A full list of Guernsey County locations may be found at VisitGuernseyCounty.com.

“We invite folks to relax on our porches and sip our spirits. When traveling through our area, you’ll get swept away by our unique opportunities and experiences that will drift into a day, an overnight, or a weekend and will leave you wanting to visit us over and over again,” said Robinson.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway for two or a fun-filled weekend with your friends, be sure to check out the hotel/lodging packages offered (available to overnight guests only). Each package includes the official Wild About Wine Brochure, a $10 discount on an Open-Air Safari tour (valid until 10/31/24), a Wild About Wine stemless wine glass, and a Wild About Wine Bracelet. Participants will present their bracelets as they visit all the participating wineries and breweries to receive special discounts and gifts.
