A premier winery in Ohio

Firelands Winery is one of Ohio’s oldest wineries, located in the lakeside town of Sandusky. The original cellar, which
is still used today, was built in 1880 by the Mantey family. The winery produces and bottles wine for the Firelands 1880 Estate Reserve, Firelands, Mon Ami, Lonz, and Mantey brands. The attached tasting room and restaurant are popular tourist destinations showcasing our unique Ohio wines. The estate vineyard Vitis vinifera varietals are lovingly crafted in
an austere and old-world style, while the distinctive Vitis labrusca grapes are vinified and blended to create a taste of sweet, juicy, Americana.

OUR FACILITY

Although some people feel they lack the romance associated with wine making, today’s fermenting tanks are made of stainless steel, which is much better for converting the must to wine without losing the varietal character of the grapes.

OUR EQUIPMENT

Wine from stainless steel vats or barrels tends to be lighter, fresher, and crisper compared to oak containers. For wines that emphasize a fruity flavor, stainless steel offers considerable advantages.
