Situated on a 15-acre property, the family owned-and-operated venue opened in 2009.
“This is always a fun event. It’s a good time to come out and spend time in a relaxing setting,” said Elizabeth McDonald.
Located in Hanover Twp. between Hamilton and Oxford, the winery has adopted the tagline “Hanover Winery — We’re just far enough to feel like you’ve gone somewhere.” It is 35 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, and 35 minutes from Dayton. Hanover Winery affords a park-like setting with a pond, mature trees and beautiful sunsets.
On Friday, FinTan (an Irish band) will perform at 6:30 p.m., and on Saturday, Sam Dearie will take the stage at 3 p.m. followed by Golden Goldners Roots of Rhythm and Blues Band at 6:30 p.m.
Best Thing Smokin’ food truck will be on site at 5 p.m. on Friday and 1 p.m. on Saturday. The winery will also offer cheese and charcuterie trays and pizza. Last year, nearly 1,100 guests attended the two-day event.
Guests may choose from more than 25 wines by the glass or bottle, which are all produced by Hanover Winery. A house Sangria will also be served by the glass or pitcher, along with wine slushies, bourbon cocktails, bourbon slushies, and a variety of beers, including beer selections from Municipal Brew Works.
