ANOTHER AWARD! – “MISS PETUNIA PIE”
Yes, we have done it again. We have just been notified by the Ohio State Wine Industries Committee that our new desert wine – “Miss Petunia Pie” – has won the coveted Ohio Quality Wine award. This award – the “OQW” award – puts this wine in the top class of wines made in Ohio. So, 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 some wineries, please stop in and try “Miss Petunia Pie.” (If you are lucky, you may also get to see the celebrity dog Missie in real life, who is on the label and is the wine’s namesake.) So far, we have won 10 OQW awards since we have been first opened in early 2013!
THINK HARVEST? – NOW YOU CAN DO IT!
Our winemaker Patricia Chalfant will decide later this week what we will be picking this weekend. The candidate grape varieties included are our Noiret vines and our Seyval vines. The decision depends in part upon the weather and also upon the chemistry she measures in each of these grape varieties, including their sugar (“brix”), acidity (“TA”) and pH. To determine these factors, she collects 100 berry samples and then measures the combined berry sample using her chemical analysis skills.
Volunteers are invited to pick on Saturday and/or 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: email@example.com

The tasting room is open Friday and Saturday from 2pm until dark. Betina Solas makes her fist appearance this Friday at the Tasting Room, so come and hear her special celtic music strait from Dublin!

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.
