Mantey VineyardsEdward Mantey purchased land in what was called at the time Venice, but the expansion of Sandusky absorbed the area into its corporation limits.
For nearly a century, Mantey Vineyards has produced fine Ohio wine. In 1880, Edward Mantey moved from Kelley’s Island to a small fruit farm in Venice, Ohio. The growing of grapes and production of wine was becoming a thriving business on the south shore of Lake Erie. The climate and soil produced excellent wine grapes, and the growing immigrant population from wine producing countries provided a good market. A sizable part of Edward Mantey’s farm was allotted to grapes. These were converted into wine and for the most part sold locally. Gradually fame of Mantey’s wine spread over a wide area and an active business was carried out between Pittsburgh and Chicago. Edward Mantey’s two sons became interested in the production of these fine wines, and joined their father’s business, which had grown from producing a few thousand to over 50,000 gallons of wine a year.
