The newest winery in Ohio's "wine capital" of Ashtabula County is Kosicek Vineyards, located in Harpersfield (and pronounced ka-see-check). In an area where there is - almost literally - a winery found on every turn, it takes high quality vino to make one stand out from the rest. Kosicek, even in its infancy, most definitely delivers.
On a recent wine shuttle tour I took while staying at the Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake, our driver Don insisted that our first stop be Kosicek. He said that it is a fantastic up-and-coming winery that people HAVE to check out. Since it's not as well known as some of the bigger-name wineries (yet), he said he wants to expose as many people as possible to this great new spot.
The winery can be found on a beautiful estate, and is set far back from the main road, with lush vineyards going on for what seems like forever. The interior includes a striking brick fireplace, with high tops, bar seating, and even an inviting couch made out of re-purposed wine barrels.
In the summer months, nothing beats coming here to sit out on the deck under the green and yellow canopy, overlooking the vineyards (they have live music and even yoga classes on the deck in warm months). But, in the winter, it's great to cozy up by the fireplace and sip on some juice.
Winter hours for January, February and March are: Thursday 12-6; Friday 12-9; Saturday 12-9; and Sunday 12-7.
