Looking for delightful Ohio wines with a gorgeous lake view? Visit Buckeye Lake Winery! Located along the shores of Buckeye Lake, approximately 35 miles east of Columbus, Buckeye Lake Winery is the perfect spot to sip on Ohio wines, dine on a delicious meal and to enjoy the gorgeous lake views.
Established in 2013, Buckeye Lake Winery is committed to producing quality wines by bringing a Napa Valley experience to Ohio. Working directly with California grape growers in Napa Valley, Russian River Valley, Sonoma and the Lodi Regions, their hands-on approach from start to finish, ensures that each of their wines are premium Napa Valley quality. Featuring nine wines; eight are California grown grapes and one sweet white wine made with Ohio grown grapes which is produced and bottled at Buckeye Lake Winery. From red to white and dry to sweet, wine lovers will find a wine to satisfy their palate at Buckeye Lake Winery!
Pairing great wine with good food is easy to do at Buckeye Lake Winery. Featuring soups, salads, charcuterie boards, small plates, sandwiches, flat breads and entrees, the extensive gourmet menu will make your inner-foodie rejoice! We started with a wine tasting of eight wines and paired our tasting with winery chips (kettle chips drizzled with cream sauce, parmesan and crumbled gorgonzola…those were divine!) and a charcuterie board featuring a selection of artisanal cheeses (you MUST try their homemade apricot goat cheese and blueberry goat cheese…absolutely sublime!), cured meats, olives, dried fruit and nuts, French bread and marmalade. After our tasting, we shared a bottle of Lake View White while dining on delicious gourmet sandwiches (The Bradwich and Chipotle Chicken).
While you may visit Buckeye Lake Winery for Napa-inspired wines and delicious gourmet food, you will find yourself being captivated by the lovely lake views! Settle into one of the many cozy seating areas all with lake views, pour yourself a glass of wine, listen to the relaxing music (live bands are featured during summer weekends) and marvel in the beauty of nature! We found ourselves staying for more than three hours, an easy feat with the food, wine and views at Buckeye Lake Winery….it truly was the perfect Ohio summer evening!
