Absolutely the best winery I have visited in ohio and maybe east of the Mississippi. Read the other reviews and believe them. I would recommend calling ahead and if you ask, Arnie may even give you the dime tour of their traditional European wine cellar! Don't be put off by the back road, or that it doesn't look like your... More

Great varietal wines that pair well with food. well balanced and crafted with a passion. My favorites are the Chardonnays reminisent of some of the fine wines of Chablis in France. Arnie is true to his craft. He respects the land and lets the grapes do their thing!

We spent the weekend bicycling, visiting covered bridges, and wineries. We planned to visit Markko winery during the bridge tour. We had always heard the wines were very good, but it's a bit off our beaten path. When we pulled in, it reminded us of the approach to the Armstrong Woods Redwood Preserve in Sonoma - very woodsy. As soon... More

This was our second trip to Markko Vineyards. Arnie Markko and his partner Linda run this Vineyard and Winery. Markko has been making Fine Wines (not fruity) but ones using European stock since 1968. The Ohio Wineries all speak fondly of Arnie since he not only was the Godfather but goes out of his way to help new Wineries and... More

With all the old world charm of a graveyard, Markko leaves a bit to be desired from ambiance but makes up for it in delicious wine. This place is not for the faint of heart. You will most likely be served by an indifferent contacerous delightful old woman who couldn't care less if you enjoyed wine or disco danced on... More

This place may look a bit sketchy. You may think you hear banjos playing (think Deliverance). You may wonder if it's an actual winery or just someone's home. But, whatever you think, don't turn away. Take a chance, walk inside, and sample all the delicious wines you want. This is not your typical winery, but the tasty wine and interesting... More

Group of six visited the vineyard - great experience. Markko is a smaller winery offering strictly estate grown grapes. Owner Arnie Esterer founded the winery in 1968. Back in the woods and very comfortable. We enjoyed tasting of several wines including '09 Pinot Noir and a wonderful '10 Reserve Chardonnay (my favorite). Also tasted and purchased a bottle of '99...

We were staying in Geneva on the Lake and decided to go wine tasting. Markko Vineyard seemed like it was the furthest away so we started there and worked our way back to Geneva. This was the BEST winery that we visited all day. We purchased several bottles of wine. We prefer Chardonnay and Cabernet wines and they had quite... More

Several friends of mine and I visited this winery during a local wine tour. When pulling up, we were confused as to whether or not we were actually at a winery or someone's personal home. It's in the middle of the woods and pretty run down looking. There are dodgy picnic tables in the lawn as well as various rusty... More
