There isn't a whole lot more that I can add to the negative reviews that have already been posted. The atmosphere was more akin to a mountain man's cabin than a winery. We actually passed up the main house and had to turn around at a dead end. Greeting by some obnoxious dogs on the way in, couldn't find the... More

While out in the Conneaut area, chasing down wineries, which we have not visited in our past trips, Markko popped up on our gps, so we set out to visit there. Located off of RT 84 in Ashtabula county, near Conneaut, getting there was an adventure in itself. Located on a dirt road, the winery is located on a beautiful... More

We came to Markko Vineyard after visiting several others in the area. We enjoyed sitting out on the back deck while tasting. The wine was good, not my absolute favorite. The place is old and dirty-even saw a mouse run by. But, getting there was half the battle! The dirt road threw us for a loop!

This little backwoods 'house' was not fit for serving anything. The wine tasted old, and not in a good way. It was dark, dingy and smelled like mildew. The wines are really overpriced, even if you are a fan of the dry wines. Just not a good idea to visit this one. There are too many others which are worth... More

I heard good things about the wine but we stopped at shortly after it opened and had no idea if we were to continue to pull forward, park and go to the first building, or if the place was still in business. We sat turned around and sat for about 5 minutes as I messed with the GPS. We didn't... More

This winery is out of the way a little but well worth the travel. Situated on a dirt road in the woods, the building is so old/beautiful. Arnie is the owner and has a very fun and dry sense of humor. The wines are excellent - the best in Ohio and are well worth the prices. This vineyard is different... More

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
