Especially on a lazy Sunday afternoon, my husband Jack and I are fond of visiting one of our local wineries just to kick back and relax. Most recently, our winery of choice was Halliday’s Winery at Lake Milton, Ohio. The Halliday wines number just six – three reds and three whites – and my favorite by far is the Riesling (shown here on one of the tables, all of which are decorated with old-time photos). The winery is named for Jesse Halliday, who built and ran a grist mill in the area in the early 1800s not long after Ohio gained statehood.

    Nice capture AND tradition! I like a good Riesling, too.

  • Probably my favorite white wine as long as it’s not really dry – this one’s just about right and not too sweet, not too dry. It’s also 7 bucks a glass, so we don’t go here too often! :-D
