Forget heading to Napa for a wine tasting this year. Instead, book a flight to Ohio. According to RewardExpert, which analyzed millions of ratings on CellarTracker to identify where the best reviewed bottles of wine originated, Ohio is the top destination for wine this year. Coshocton, Ohio, to be exact, reports Smithsonian Magazine. Located about two hours south of Cleveland and a bit more than an hour east of Columbus, Coshocton has nine wineries and vineyards that boast an average wine rating of 98 out of 100.
