Touring Ohio wineries and vineyards inspired hobby winemakers Paul and Donna Roberts to acquire land, plant grapes, and build a winery on 53 acres of rolling countryside. Visitors can browse the vineyards, taste the wines, and take in fantastic views. The location hosts special events periodically, including chef dinners, cookouts, and catered affairs.
The location opened in 1999 and the couple maintains three acres of mainly French Hybrid grapes, and produces 14 wine varieties ranging from sweet to dry. Several of the wines have received the Ohio Quality Wine label granted by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. This program is open only to Ohio wines produced with at least 90% Ohio-grown grapes and have passed a rigorous sensory and chemical analysis.
