Description

Peter Ferrante (1923-2009) and Josephine Ferrante represent the success of the early history of the new Ohio wine industry. Leaders in local and national viticulture, the couple brought some of the first French hybrid grapes, a cross between American native grapes and European wine grapes, to the Grand River American Viticulture Area. This mix combines the best traits of both varieties; resisting disease, surviving northern Ohio’s cooler climate, and making better quality wines.
