The Ferrante Legacy
The Ferrante Family has been producing nationally and internationally acclaimed wines since 1937, when they opened their first winery in Cleveland’s Collinwood area. In the 1970’s Peter Ferrante built a state-of-the-art winemaking facility in the family’s Harpersfield Township vineyard. Pete (Papa) Ferrante & wife Josephine (Mama) Ferrante created a legacy that now 5 of their 8 children are continuing to honor.
Today guests can visit our state-of-the-art winery, where third generation brothers work together with the overall goal of striving to maintain 80 years of tradition. Anthony Ferrante manages 40 acres of manicured vineyards, and Winemaker Nick Ferrante continually experiments with new innovative technology/techniques to keep his wines cutting edge.
In the Ristorante, sisters Carmel and Mary Jo Ferrante along with the entire extended Ferrante family and staff provide the ultimate dining experience.
The Ferrante farm is located in the heart of the Grand River Valley. The Grand River Valley is an American Viticultural Area federally recognized including land that is 2 miles from the Grand River, and 14 miles from Lake Erie. This region provides an ideal climate for growing grapes. Our 40 acres of vineyards are home to vinifera style grapes including; Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Dolcetto, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc just to name a few!
