GV Destinations is teaming up with the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank and Taste of the NFL for the “Kick Hunger Challenge.” Now through September 30, when you visit The Bistro, The Crush House, The Marketplace or The Twisted Olive, make a $1 donation to fight hunger in our community, and we will match it.
The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank provides food and other essential items to hunger-relief programs in eight Northeast Ohio counties. Gervasi Vineyard and The Twisted Olive have a combined fundraising goal of $10,000 for the month of September. Join us in supporting this local cause that has a real and lasting impact on hungry men, women and children in our area.
Stop in today and ask your server how to donate!
USA TODAY released its 10Best list of wine country hotels, and The Villas were ranked #1 in the nation! A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to pick the initial 20 nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote.
“As a destination winery resort, we are truly honored and excited to once again be voted as the ‘Best Wine Country Hotel’ in the country,” said Scott Swaldo, General Manager. “We celebrate this significant achievement with our team who have worked so hard to make Gervasi Vineyard a world-class destination."
The 7th Annual Bellissimo Fine Art & Fine Crafts Show drew more than 50 artists and artisans and a vast array of unique creations. Visitors were asked to vote for their favorite artist, and after 560 votes were tallied, Deborah Russel was named People’s Choice for her glass bottle serving trays.
Deborah’s process begins by melting the bottles for 22-26 hours. If the bottle has a paper label, it takes four extra hours to remove the label, reapply and coat with finish. Each bottle is tempered, which makes it suitable for heating and freezing. The result is a functional dish that can be used for anything from serving appetizers to displaying business cards. She uses many old, antique bottles from brands like Coke, Pepsi and Clorox. The bottles are decorated to match the label and are displayed in a color-coordinated manner. All bottles are unique, and they can be personalized for each customer.
Congratulations Deborah, and thank you to all artists who participated in this year’s event!
