Situated on the western side of the Geneva-on-the-Lake, this unique destination resort features an eight room bed and breakfast, four 1940s era cottages, a full production winery, a farm-to-table restaurant, and a day spa on 2 acres with an expansive view of Lake Erie. The location offers a variety of semi-sweet and dry wines designed to accompany the food available at the restaurant.

Running the business is a family affair for the Fagnillis, who purchased the property in 2001 and opened the winery in 2002. Sam Fagnilli, who grew up on a dairy farm, is the winemaker and his wife, Karen, assists with the daily operations in the inn, spa, and restaurant. Their son and chef, Nathan, manages the restaurant and Andrea, their daughter, coordinates the location’s events.
