Laurentia Vineyard & Winery (written Apr 08, 2022)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
3 wines w/generous tasting for $9. Only red tasted was a light structured, drink now Cabernet Sauvignon. As for white wines, tried was a no real character Gewurztraminer and a slight citrus flavored Riesling. Appreciated was a real effort by Laurentia during covid restricted era to separate patrons as best as possible into separated seating areas.

Kosicek Vineyards (written Oct 05, 2021)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
Appreciated during this covid era was the orders taken at the bar and tastings done at individual tables with wines noted on each glass. Our hostess gave us an honest overview of local wine practices. Seven whites, three 'pinks' and eleven reds. Rather generic in tastes overall, but a nice introduction to what wines can be found in Ohio.

Quarry Hill Winery (written Oct 03, 2021)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
One host, Emily, smiling and serving 22 people at one time as she greeted guests, cooked, offered tastings, rang up sales and cleaned the facilities by herself. And there are those who do not have faith in today's youth?? We found a delightfully dry, green apple tasting (yes, you are located among hundreds of acres of apples trees) Pinot Grigio and an unexpected heavier bodied, yellow 'dry' Riesling. Red wines were typically northern state light-to-medium bodied vinifera Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah and a blend attempt. Our success here was finding an uniquely smooth, semi-fruity Apple 'gift' wine.

Stonegait Winery (written Sep 15, 2021)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 3 stars
Unassuming and rather new to the Ohio wine scene, this winery surprised me with its offerings of not only vinifera wines but also American hybrid selections. They are producing a light Marquette example which can easily accompany most meals plus an exceptional, uniquely clear, refreshing Russian Rkatsiteli. As described by my wife, ~ 'like Champagne without the fizz.'
