Gervasi expansion to include hotel and distillery

Gervasi Vineyard is expanding to include a boutique hotel and distillery.

JUST ANNOUNCED - Gervasi Vineyard will be expanding to include a luxury boutique hotel and distillery. The construction of this two-building expansion will begin this spring.

“The addition of a hotel and distillery further exemplifies Gervasi Vineyard as a destination resort,” said Ted Swaldo, Owner/Proprietor of GV Destinations. “To grow strategically, our objective is to listen to our guests and align our business accordingly.”

The two new venues will be built together just across from The Crush House on the southwest quadrant of the property and will boast a Tuscan mission-style motif.

The single-story hotel will host 24 large individual suites featuring king-sized beds, fireplaces, heated floors and other high-end amenities. A covered patio will be adjacent to each room, allowing guests to enjoy the picturesque view of a courtyard and pond. The 18,000-square-foot structure will feature a shared lobby with an exercise facility. Similar to The Villas, the hotel will offer a complimentary Italian-style continental breakfast delivered to each room, as well as deluxe in-room services such as spa treatments, massage and yoga. Guests may also order Gervasi wines, specialty foods and flowers to be delivered to their room.

Further cementing the position as a destination resort in Ohio, the Swaldo family is adding a 10,000-square-foot distillery, which will feature an extensive line of craft spirits. The expansive structure will showcase high ceilings with an oversized window to view the distillery. A craft cocktail lounge and posh cigar lounge will be positioned to overlook the adjacent park trails and creek bed. Public and private tours will be offered, as well as tasting experiences. The distillery will be built next to the south vineyard (in front of the new hotel) and will house a welcome center for guests.

“We are proud to be one of the first wineries in Ohio to break into the craft distillery market,” said Scott Swaldo, Owner and General Manager of GV Destinations. “This provides a great opportunity to expand our demographic into the millennial market and broaden our appeal to consumers seeking a unique experience. Our offering of spirits is still under development, and will certainly evolve. We anticipate beginning with wine barrel-aged bourbon, whiskey, vodka, gin and select liqueurs and brandy."

Gervasi Vineyard is a prime example of how the City of Canton is supporting growth and development of tourism in our backyard. “Gervasi is a first-class destination for locals and tourists for our great city,” said Tom Bernabei, Mayor of Canton. “The current assets – The Bistro, The Crush House, the winery and The Villas – make me proud that Gervasi Vineyard calls Canton home. The addition of the hotel and distillery will be over the top.”

The expansion is scheduled to be completed in late 2018 or early 2019, with an opening date to be announced.
