I am originally from the Cleveland area, however, I have not always called Cleveland home. My affinity for wine led me to the Napa Valley in 2003 to pursue a winemaking education. After several vintages spent learning my craft, I returned to Northeast Ohio and began making wine in the Grand River Valley. Over the years I have consulted for many of Ohio’s top wineries.
When I learned of an Urban Winery coming to my hometown of Cleveland Heights, I felt compelled to make a contribution to the project. The vision for the winery is one that emphasizes community outreach through wine accessibility, and a commitment to educate and enable all levels of wine enthusiasts.
I look forward to interacting with all my fellow Oenophiles in the Greater Cleveland area!
