Sip, swirl, spit -- the Cleveland Wine Festival returns.

More than 200 varieties of vino from across the globe will be poured at this weekend’s Cleveland Wine Festival at Voinovich Park. Reds, whites, and zinfandels from Australia, France, and Italy are on tap at the second-annual outing. “Our goal is to give people the chance to try different types of wine,” says spokesman Chad Tennant. “So when they are faced with the hundreds of choices available at their local store or on the restaurant wine list, they will have a better understanding of what they like.” In addition to all the sipping going on, the fest features cooking demonstrations by some of the area’s top chefs -- who’ll pair specialty dishes with different varietals. Plus, more than 30 Ohio vineyards are spotlighted in a special area. “We have the chance to show the quality that our state truly has to offer, under one pavilion,” says the wine fest’s Chris Previte.
