COSHOCTON -- For decades, Coshocton has been known as "Crow Town." No one seems to recall when or why that nickname began, but in recent years thousands of Canadian Crows have decided to make Coshocton their winter roost from November through early March. So in order to make the best of the situation, the crows are now celebrated each November with "crow-themed" festivities such as the Crow Homecoming and this Crow-shocton Crush Winery event.

On Nov. 8, the five wineries that make up Coshocton's Three Rivers Wine Trail will present the Crow-shocton Crush Wine Trail Event from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Guests will enjoy the fall season and taste delicious wines from each of the wineries. Advance tickets are required.

Tickets are $20 per person which includes wine tastings at each winery, visits with the wine makers, and a special gift. Tickets may be purchased from any of the five Three Rivers Wine Trail wineries: Shawnee Springs Winery, 740-623-0744; Rainbow Hills Winery, 740-545-9305; Heritage Vineyard Winery, 740-824-4314; Yellow Butterfly Winery, 492-1216; or Raven's Glenn Winery, 545-9305.

There is a Wine Trail Shuttle for the Crow-shocton Crush event available (with prior reservation) for $35 person that will take you to each of the five wineries. Contact Nikko's Wine Trail Shuttle at 740-622-0642. Coshocton Village Inn & Suites is also offering a special Three Rivers Wine Trail overnight rate.
