Ohio actually has some of the longest wine making traditions in this country. Prior to, and just after, Prohibition, the area along the southern shores of Lake Erie was one of the leading winemaking areas in the country. These days, there are still many wineries producing many excellent whites and dessert wines, and the occasional quality red. Most, however, follow the tourist model, often combining restaurants or Inns and providing entertainment in addition to serving their own wines. The wine was from one of those. That doesn't mean the wines are not good or worth buying.
