ODOT chose to tear up the intersection of US 30 and County Road 128 so our easy access from US 30 has changed. Thanks for doing that during our busiest time of the year! Way to consider the taxpayers!! Even a little notification would have been nice, but so rolls the government. If you are coming from the East on US 30 you need to exit at the SR 231 / Nevada exit and turn left (South). Go about a 1/4 mile and turn right on County Highway 56. Travel about 2 miles down the road to find us!! Coming from the West you will go past the winery (check out the vines from the highway), past the road side rest area and take the next exit SR 231 / Nevada. Turn right and go about 1/8 mile then turn right on County Highway 56 to come back to us!!
We are well into the second pruning of the vines and the grapes are awesome!!! They are looking really green and healthy. It's looking like a good harvest season so far.
Some new and some repeat events are on the July calendar. White Shutter is closing Saturday July 2 to support the Wyandot County Music Festival. Wyanstock is held by the Young Professionals of Wyandot County to fund scholarships and local charities. Come visit us at the Wyandot County Fairgrounds that day noon to midnight and enjoy good music, great beverages, tasty food, and some nice people.
The Wine and Yoga nights have been extremely popular. Come join us for a relaxing hour of yoga with Michele and then a yummy wine slushy!! We also have Zumba back this month with Deanna. Zumba, games, snacks, and wine make for a fun evening!
On July 21 we are trying a new craft. Jake is going to make frames out of pallet boards and we are going to paint a picture on them. Keep an eye on our Facebook page to see the picture and get signed up!!
It's great to see all of our wine friends again this year! Opening night we held a silent auction to help out a local family whose young son has cancer and were able to raise over $400 for them. Thanks to everyone who so generously participated by purchasing items and thanks to the following folks who donated auction items: Bair Family Farms, Barb and Bill Shumaker, Bringman and Clark Funeral Home, Curves of Upper Sandusky, Dr. Matt Thiel, East School Staff, Kendra Wolf, Leightey Stove Works, Michele Minehart Yoga, Rellinger Farms, Sarah Hamilton, Uper Sandusky Ram Boosters, and White Shutter Winery.
The vines are leafed out and we have some foot long shoots. The vineyard is looking beautiful and green. Thankfully we avoided the late frost threats.
Rumors about a brewery are true and permits have been sent in. Maybe this year you will be able to enjoy a cold craft beer at the venue!
On the nights we have live music our local food trailer has been present with delicious sandwiches and sides. Check our facebook page to see what Barb and Bill have cooked up for us on those nights!! The wine slush machine is debuting on May 20!! Come on out and get your slush on!!
Zumba with Deanna continues as last year on the last Wednesday of the month at 6:00. It is free and it's a great workout!
A new adventure this Spring is YOGA!!! Michele Minehart is a certified instructor and does an awesome job making us all feel relaxed and stretched - plus a super workout as well. The cost is $10 for an hour and a glass of wine or a wine slush. It starts at 6:30 on Thursday nights twice a month. Check our facebook page for her exact dates.
There are many more opportunities being planned this year to enjoy the local musical talent pool. Our goal is to have music twice a month this summer. Cork and Canvas events will be offered monthly. Let us know if you have any other events you would like to see:)
Come visit us in our charming 1850's farmhouse tasting room and take in a panoramic view of Wyandot County's first vineyard and winery. Experience our selection of sweet to dry wines produced and bottled on site. Like us on Facebook for times and details regarding upcoming special events!
