Passports for the trail are available at each of the six participating wineries: Mastropietro Winery and Myrddin Winery in Berlin Center,Lil Paws Winery and Halliday’s Winery in Lake Milton, The Vineyards at Pine Lake in Columbiana, and Diletto Winery (reopening at their new location in Boardman in October). You can also download a passport atwww.winesofthevalley.com. With passport in hand, participants purchase a glass of wine, get their passport stamped and receive a custom wine charm exclusive to each winery.
