Lonz WineryDuring the mid-1800’s, Middle Bass Island was a remote, sleepy little grape farming community. But a German settler named Andrew Wehrle changed all that at the southern tip of the island. Wehrle, a stonecutter by trade, began by carving a 14-foot deep wine cellar out fo the island’s native limestone. By 1875, the Golden Eagle was reputed to be the largest winery in the United States.
Lonz wines, now part of a corporation bearing its name, continue to be made by enologist Claudio Salvador. Born in Italy, where he received his education and experience in the art of winemaking, Claudio has been making the signature Lonz wines since 1979. Combining his knowledge of wine making, continuing research, meticulous vinification, and creative effort, he has produced a new class of Lonz wines that are winning national awards. The same pride, the same determination and the same standards set by Andrew Wehrle and George Lonz continue today as we expand and improve on the fine wines bearing the Lonz name.
