Trumbull County has taste – especially when it comes to locally made wines, beers, and yes, even mead! From woodsy wineries to industrial breweries, here are some places the discerning drinker won’t want to miss:

Hartford Hill Winery Northeast Ohio

Hartford Hill Winery & Brewery

Bushnell Campbell Road, Fowler

This scenic country winery has plenty of space for a good time – inside and out.

Enjoy upscale country vibes while you sample Hartford Hill’s extensive wine selection, including fruit wines – blueberry is a favorite – red blends, and wine slushies. And craft beer is on the menu now, too!

Need a bite to eat? Treat yourself to elevated apps, pizzas, sandwiches, and desserts.

With a sprawling outdoor area including a large patio and covered stage, you can sit outside and take in the view (say hello to the ducks in the pond) or, if you prefer, cozy up in the loft or around the fireplace inside. This dog-friendly winery will provide a relaxed country vibe. 

And you’ll probably catch some live music while you’re there!

Country Porch Winery in Northeast Ohio

Country Porch Winery

Wilson Sharpsville Road, Cortland

This family-friendly and dog-friendly local winery provides cozy vibes and tasty wines since 2008.

If you lean on “the sweeter side of the vine” or like some “semi-sweet middle of the country road” wines, you’ll likely find some new favorites at Country Porch. Plus, there are plenty of fruit wines and sangrias to try!

The menu includes a selection of appetizers, plus flatbreads and an extensive list of monthly specials.

Keep an eye on Country Porch’s calendar for paint-and-sips and classes – because the only thing better than a glass of wine is having a little extra fun while you drink it.

And, if you have a four-legged friend, you can bring them along – Country Porch’s patio is dog-friendly!

Charbeney's Wine on the River in Northeast Ohio

CharBenay’s Wine on the River

West Market Street, Warren

Located in the heart of downtown Warren, CharBenay’s is a wine bar that offers a dozen selections that can be enjoyed in the spacious indoor seating area or by a firepit on the large patio overlooking the scenic Mahoning River.

CharBenay’s has a full, creative menu with everything from local favorites to seafood, veggie dishes, and desserts. And you can grab brunch on Sundays!

With local craft beer, bourbon, and nonalcoholic options, Char’s is a great place for everyone and can easily accommodate big gatherings. You’ll often find live bands playing inside or out, so you can rock out while you wine and dine!

Greene Eagle Winery Fowler Northeast Ohio

Greene Eagle Winery and Brew Pub

Davis Peck Road, Greene Twp.

You can really, “take a sip back in time” at this woodsy and charming, small-town winery. Stepping into Greene Eagle feels like setting foot in a lovely cabin. Outside, there’s a cozy porch and a big, sprawling lawn.

With a selection of dry and sweet wines, Greene Eagle has something for everyone. From their Gewurztraminer, a fruity, semi-dry white wine, to a peach wine slushie, you can’t go wrong. And, if wine isn’t your style, check out Greene Eagle’s wheat beer or IPA!

Hungry? The menu includes salads, pizzas, sandwiches, and wraps. Plus, you can get a “cupcuterie” and carry your charcuterie wherever you go!

With live music and special seasonal events, you won’t want to leave – and you won’t have to if you book an overnight stay in Eagles Nest Cabin. The inviting cabin behind the winery has a queen bed, loft, and a sleeper sofa.



Woodland Cellars in Northeast Ohio

Woodland Cellars | Too Hot Mamas

Main Street, Hubbard

On Main Street in Hubbard, you’ll find more than just a winery. In addition to a wine menu, Woodland Cellars, along with the addition of Too Hot Mamas, has a variety of ciders – which you can take home in growlers – and mead made from a 700-year-old recipe!

It also has a robust food menu with flatbreads, burgers, and some exciting entrees created by Too Hot Mamas.

This family-owned winery and meadery has been open since 2018. With its relaxed, comfortable setting, you’ll be sure to enjoy the live bands, trivia nights, games, and puzzles along with your drink of choice. And keep an eye out for events like karaoke night and craft classes.

Modern Methods in Northeast Ohio

Modern Methods Brewery

Dave Grohl Alley, Warren

Across from the World’s Largest Drumsticks in colorful Dave Grohl Alley you’ll find a brewery with modern industrial vibes and an extensive selection.

Methods has more than a dozen homemade craft beers on tap to keep a beer-lover coming back for more. Popular brews include the Darlene Logger – winner of a local people’s choice award – Dub City IPA, and the Roast Beast, a coffee-chocolate stout. If you like what you taste, you can take home a “Grohler.”

While Moderns Methods doesn’t have a regular food menu, it often teams up with local eateries for pop-up dinners, and on any given day has snacks and a seasonal charcuterie on hand. Plus, it’s walking distance from lots of locally owned downtown restaurants.

Thursday night is game night. You can also enjoy live music most weekends and catch the occasional open mic night or specialty performance. And, seasonal Night Markets turn Modern Methods and the alleyway into an artisanal market with soaps, woodworks, chocolates, handmade jewelry and more.
