Ohio

I'm going to be in Dayton Ohio for this week, and I've heard some hints that there is wine made in Ohio. Is there anything worth going out of my way to find? Any Ohioans out there feel there is a "bragging rights" wine?

There is a good deal of wine made in Ohio.
None of it is worth going out of your way to get. IMHO.

Now, now...... One mans opinion, as knowledgeable as it may be, may be just another name for mouthwash. Every tasting room in every state or region of this planet, deserves at least "one" opportunity at your hard earned wallet, w/o fear of vino prejudice.
Go ahead. Give those Galapagos grapes a try. How about a Fass 'O Fargo (North Dakota)? You scoff? But they're all award winning in their respective classes, aren't they? What are all those ribbons above our heads? Jungle Juice division, Taste of the Tundra, Prairie Pissoir?

Certainly, Ohio wines do march to the beat of a different drummer. That is due to the climate and soil conditions. Gone are the days of foxy concord based wines. One notable exception is Chalet Debonne. Their Grand River Riesling and Pinot Gris will match up well against most anything out of Washington or Oregon. Any other comments?

Thanks, folks, for the input... ... and as for "every tasting room" - I don't have time on this trip...thought I could cut the odds a little.
In that same vein, I just returned from Bali, where I tasted every winery (3) and there was actually one I would order next time - "Wine of the Gods" brand (don't ask, I don't know) Bali was an interesting wine area - they were harvesting, but there were also dormant vineyards, and some that were just in bloom. Three crops a year - no waiting. Maybe they should qualify vintages like "2003 - July" or "dry season '03"
