Describe your experience at Gervasi over the years.
Starting with the Gervasi team in early 2009 to develop and commission the winery has truly been a rewarding experience. It has been a pleasure working with the Swaldo family as the operation evolved and adapted over the years in response to our community of customers. We planted five acres of vineyards that are currently focused on three grape varietals; Marquette, Frontenac Gris and Aromella. Our wine portfolio has grown from 7 wines in 2010 to 24 wines today that we bottle on site. Over our short history, our wines have received distinctions with gold and double gold medals, Ohio and Finger Lakes wine competitions “Best of Class”, The Ohio Department of Agriculture Director’s Choice Award for “Best of” and 2016 Ohio Winemaker of the Year.

Call us biased, but we think there are a whole lot of reasons for you to come and spend some time with us at Gervasi Vineyard. But let’s face it – few of those reasons would exist without one of the key attractions at Gervasi: wine.
So whether you are new to the Gervasi Vineyard world or you’ve been here a dozen times, we’d like to show you how Gervasi’s head winemaker Andrew Codispoti and his winemaking staff turn grapes on the vine, our raisin d’etre, into delicious award winning wines during one of our many winery tours where wine novices and seasoned connoisseurs alike will learn first-hand about the Gervasi winemaking process.

If you are new to the winery tasting experience, here are a few suggestions for your venture. First, taste wine with friends. It will be more fun with comrades in the exploration. In the tasting room, the staff will enjoy sharing about their wines. So ask about the vineyards and how the wines are made. Plan for food around your tastings. It enriches the experience, moderates the alcohol and nurtures responsible tasting. Winery staff and restaurant servers will gladly recommend a food and wine pairing for you. (more…)
