Known as the “church winery”, this boutique winery is contained in a century old Methodist Episcopal church that originally was located in Shalersville, Ohio. Wine owners, Heather and Gene Sigel, moved the church to its present location in 2000, opened the winery in 2002, and constructed a back deck overlooking the vineyards in 2006.
Signs of the church remain such as the original pews, the wainscoting, flooring, and some of the stained glass windows. Marketed as “the quiet winery”, the location provides a relaxing atmosphere for intimate conversation and beautiful views. Currently the vineyard consists of 35 acres of vinifera and produces 2,500 to 3,000 cases of wine yearly.
