2016, Debonne Vineyards


Featured as part of the Ashtabula County’s Barn Quilt Trail, an 8 foot-by-8-foot painted airplane quilt hangs prominently on one of the oldest barns on site. The story goes that before wind machines were used to prevent vine frost damage, the late Tony Debevc, Sr. would bring in World War II airplane engines to circulate the air and protect his vines. The current wine owner, Tony Debevc, Jr., is also an avid flyer and his personal hangar is located on a grassy site between rows of grapevines.
