There aren’t many places on the island more beautiful than the Heineman Winery wine garden. Heineman Winery wine is bottled on the island, and made on the island, from grapes grown on the island. Try one of the many varieties of their quality wine on a cool summer day and enjoy the amazing outdoor wine garden. Heineman Winery is open daily from their opening in mid-April through to near the end of October. Tours of the winery, as well as the spectacular Crystal Cave, are available for $8 for adults and $4 for children.
Come to the winery and enjoy a fantastic cheese plate with your wine of choice in their wine garden. Their selection of wines, all produced from seed to bottle right here at the winery, is impressive. They have 25 different varieties of wine! While we don’t recommend trying them all in one visit, you should definitely sample as many as you can responsibly, because they’re all amazing! You’ll just have to make a repeat visit to check out the rest!
Some of Heineman Winery’s Varieties
Be sure to also give their grape juice a try. It was this grape juice, along with tours of Crystal Cave, that allowed the winery to survive prohibition, so it’s basically like tasting history! Heineman Winery can also ship any of their wines year-round, but be aware, they can only ship wine inside of Ohio. So if you’re from out of state, make sure to stock up while you’re on the island!
Heineman Winery has been passed down from generation to generation in the Heineman family. It’s truly a family-owned business, and one Put-in-Bay is proud to be home to. A bottle or two of Heineman wine will make for the perfect gift to take back to the mainland!
