GREAT EVENT THURSDAY – SIMPLY ONE
Check out the Simply One event referenced on the right … just press the button! Simply One is sponsoring a fabulous evening at the tasting room 6:30pm to 9:30pm this Thursday night, including Thai food and acoustic guitar music by the popular local artist Dave Mullikin, all to raise funds for Simply One’s charitable efforts. Come and have a blast!
To help celebrate the event, we are introducing our new 2013 vintage Chardonel. This is probably our best Chardonnay style wine yet, and we know you will enjoy it. Our Chardonel has been very popular with our customers and friends in the past.
ANOTHER AWARD – “MISS PETUNIA PIE”
Our “Miss Petunia Pie” won the coveted Ohio Quality Wine award in August. The “OQW” award puts this wine in the top class of wines made in Ohio. If you are looking for something special with or for desert which is priced very reasonably and is like the much more expensive ice wines sold by others, please stop in and try “Miss Petunia Pie.” (If you are lucky, you may also get to see celebrity dog Missie in real life. She is on the label and is the wine’s namesake.) So far, we have won 10 OQW awards since we opened in early 2013!
THINK HARVEST? – NOIRET THIS WEEKEND!
Our winemaker Tricia Chalfant has decided that we will pick our Noiret grapes this weekend. We believe the Noiret chemistry is as good as it can get this season, so now it is time. Our winemaker measures the grape sugar (“brix”), acidity (“TA”) and pH, and to determine these factors, she collects 100 berry samples and then measures the combined berry sample juice using her chemical analysis skills.
Volunteers are invited to pick on Saturday and, if necessary, Sunday, and observe the grape crushing and pressing process. For those who spend the day with us, we will provide a complimentary CCV T-shirt and something wet and tasty for adults . If you are interested in participating, please e-mail Tricia at: firstname.lastname@example.org
TASTING ROOM – FRIDAY AND SATURDAY:
The tasting room will be open this weekend Friday and Saturday from 2pm until 8pm. We do not have music scheduled this weekend, or generally in October as it is getting cooler outside on our pavilion patio.

HIGH QUALITY ESTATE WINES
Our core goal is to produce excellent wines from Ohio grapes which customers find pleasing and enjoyable. We pride ourselves in making “estate wines.” This means that the wines from our 2012 vintage are made on site from grapes grown in our vineyard, fermented, bottled, labeled, and aged in our winery, and sold in our tasting room. This is unusual for an Ohio winery, but it is our objective to be true to the finest winery traditions of France and California where the winemaker knows and loves her land and vines, and makes the best possible wine she can from them.
