I am the oldest winery in America with its original land. I was built by German immigrants who settled in the Ohio River Valley and produced fine wines of the America’s Rhineland(R) in the mid 1800s. I provided safety to citizens during a Civil War battle and witnessed a new era of freedom for all in America with the Underground Railroad Trail at my doors.
