A local favorite, this wine is produced from the Native American grape, Catawba. This dry wine is floral with notes of lemon grass and granny smith apples, with a slight tart finish. This is one of the first wines our founder Gustav Heineman produced in the 1880's.
About Heineman Winery
Makers of Fine Wines Since 1888
The Heineman Winery was founded in 1888 by Gustav Heineman, an immigrant from Baden, Germany, the grape growing region of that country. The Lake Erie Islands were already noted for quality grapes as a result of ideal soil conditions and the long growing season because of the tempering effect of Lake Erie.
By 1900, Heineman's was one of 17 wineries on Put-in-Bay. The passage of the Volstead Act creating the Prohibition of Alcohol in 1919 was catastrophic to the Island's grape and wine industry. Most of the wineries failed and the vineyards fell into disrepair. Heineman's survived under Gustav's son, Norman, by selling unfermented grape juice and providing taxi cab service to and tours of the Winery's caves.Learn More About Us
