Portage Hills Vineyards, 1990s


Located in the scenic southwestern corner of Portage County, the Glaus family converted 40 acres of farm land into a winery and vineyard and opened its doors in 1987. Proper soil, the right microclimate, and frost protection provided the family with the best land in the area to produce high-end American, hybrid, and vinifera wine. The winery closed in 2002.
