Whether you're looking for a romantic dinner on a patio with live music or an afternoon family outing, Maize Valley Winery is the perfect place to enjoy the fall harvest. Located about 25 minutes from downtown Akron, Maize Valley is a restaurant, a market that sells locally sourced foods and an award winning winery with a comfortable tasting room.
I recently spent the afternoon at Maize Valley, sampling some wines in their tasting room and then eating lunch on their beautiful patio out back. The staff were pleasant and very knowledgable about the wines and the food was great, especially considering how reasonably it was priced. Take a peak at their menu by clicking here.

Maize Valley will be hosting special fall activities including a corn maze and pumpkin cannon firing starting on September 12th. They are also having a Hot Air Balloon Lift Off and Art Fest on September 28th, and on October 12 they will be hosting a giant car crushing, pumpkin eating robot dinosaur called Megasaurus-- I made certain to mark my calendar for that one. For more details about upcoming events and family friendly fun, check out Maize Valley's event calendar.
