Ohio Wine Month shows state agritourism opportunity

Ohio Wine Month is an opportunity to highlight how the state’s wine industry adds value to the state’s economy.  

Christy Eckstein is the Executive Director of the Ohio Grape Industries Committee.

“That provides 40,000 plus jobs and provides $6.6 billion to the state’s economic impact each year,” she says.

She tells Brownfield wineries throughout the state have expanded to provide more options for their customers.
