Gervasi Vineyard is now among the top rated attractions in Ohio. Last fall, Ohio Magazine asked their readers and website visitors to cast votes for their favorites throughout the state in 50 categories. The list of 2014 Best of Ohio Readers’ Ballot winners was recently announced in this month’s issue. Canton’s own Gervasi Vineyard was named the Best Winery.
Gervasi Vineyard, a spectacular fifty-five acre estate is one of the few special places where beauty, tradition, comfort and an appreciation for wine, fresh food, and luxurious accommodations connect.
Gervasi Vineyard’s winery produces award-winning wines made from estate, domestic and imported grapes. The grapes are selected by an experienced wine team and all wines are bottled and cellared on premise. The estate vineyard consists of nearly six acres, growing six exceptional wine grape varieties which are well-suited to the terrain and climate.
Be transported! The more you know about wine, the more you enjoy it. Whether you’re new to wine or a long-time wine enthusiast, Gervasi offers winery tours and classes on a variety of subjects, from wine appreciation basics, to a survey of the wines of Italy, or a look at the great vintages of France. Enjoy Gervasi’s specialty handcrafted wines in two distinctive onsite restaurants: the Bistro and the Crush House, that features as expansive tasting bar.
Be delighted! The Bistro, located in a renovated barn is reminiscent of a Tuscan farmhouse. The full service Bistro offers an extensive authentic Italian menu featuring seasonal hand selected and locally sourced ingredients. In addition to the main dining room, private dining options are available. The Crush House menu offers a delicious variety of casual Italian fare perfect for a fun lunch, casual dinner or later night snack. Private dining is also available.
Be relaxed! The Villas at Gervasi Vineyard are luxurious and comfortable for overnight stays and special celebrations. The AAA Four Diamond Boutique Inn offers twenty-four lavish suites, all tastefully designed with your relaxation in mind. Each lakeside suite includes a cozy fireplace, spacious bath with walk-in shower, and an outdoor patio surrounded by stunning views. After a day of exploring the breathtaking landscapes and sampling delightful wine, the Villas makes it easy to forget that you aren’t actually in Italy.

A January vineyard stroll reveals bare canes showing a healthy rosy brown / tawny color. This is a result of near ideal fall conditions (plenty of rain and a late hard frost. Last year's canes were able to luxuriate in a splendid autumn, and fully ripen and harden off for the winter.
This week the "polar vortex" descended on North America, and the news media was abuzz. Dire warnings of frozen pipes, frost quakes and frost bite. But what about the vines? For the most part, our grape vines don't seem to mind too much (yet.)
They are at their full dormant stage at this point in the winter, the time they are best suited to endure such conditions. In fact, our Minnesota and upstate-New York bred plants wouldn't mind terribly if it dipped double digits below zero. (The coldest reading our vineyard thermometer recorded Monday night / Tuesday morning was a relatively balmy -4 F.)
"Wind Chill" is a warm blooded mammal concern, and our vines are unconcerned with these dramatic numbers the weather media trumpets. (Even our swans seem to have missed the Polar Vortex warnings, as they swam contentedly in a circle of open water on an otherwise frozen lake, water kept open by current created by their body heat and the paddling of their enormous webbed feet.)
For now it is calm and quiet in the vineyard. The snow crunches crisply underfoot. Although, if you stand around long enough on a cold winter day, you will hear some disconcerting cracks ("frost quake" in the locust vineyard poles) and eerie squeals (galvanized trellis wires tensioning and vibrating as they contract.)
