Harmony Hill Vineyards


Harmony Hill Vineyards  in Bethel, Ohio is the perfect way to spend an afternoon and/or evening!  I met my Meetup.com hiking club there yesterday and took a short hike…probably a mile…around the vineyards.  The history of the farm is really interesting.  The owners named the farm Harmony Hills after witnessing all of the wildlife existing in perfect harmony.  They grow hay and medicinal herbs in addition to the grapes on their 70 acres of sustainable farmland.  In 2006 they were certified as a National Wildlife Federation Remote Wildlife Habitat!

Here’s the entrance…

Over 120 people had signed up for the hike and potluck meal afterwards…but probably 50 showed up.  You’re allowed to bring in your own food and their wine is quite good and inexpensive.  My bottle of Chardonnay was only $13.  We had an area away from the main area for our group.  My Power Salad of chicken, avocado, pine nuts, tomato, feta cheese, and corn was a hit!

The outdoor decor was cute…

This was a dog friendly…actually encouraged…event!  You were even allowed to have your dog off leash if it was well-mannered.

  2. You certainly have a wide variety of places and activities to keep you entertained. They should make you an Ambassador for the area. I should find out if the wineries in Niagara On The Lake have similar walking meetups.

  4. p.s. I wanted to make sure it is “Paper Moon” winery in Vermilion off Rte. 60, I get the name confused with my favorite cupcake place in Powell, Ohio, named “Pink Moon!” Had to check to make sure and now, you know!

  5. I was happy to see the photos and have been considering a wine tour trip that AAA offers through the Lake Erie area. I like the little Hermes Winery on Rte. 4 traveling towards Sandusky and the ones in Vermilion area, one with a moon in its name has a nice covered long porch and inside places also. You can get plates of cheese, olives and crackers along with light snacks. The wine is nice, I will have to look it up to put it on a p.s. for this post, they do have music also on weekends! Your walk, meal and gathering looked quite inviting!
