In 1979, Wes Gerlosky acquired 50 acres of farmland in Harpersfield, planted vines, and seven years later bottled a Chardonnay. Determined to elevate the status of the winemaking industry in Ohio, Wes focused his passion on producing superb European-style wine such as his world-class Gewürztraminer.
The Ribic family acquired the winery in 2005 and has carried on the Gerlosky tradition of producing fine European wines. The establishment offers a rustic tasting room, outdoor seating with direct views of the vineyard, and weekend music entertainment. As an estate winery, all the wines are made exclusively with grapes grown at the vineyard. Today, the winery is best known for its Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Noir.
