We live near Firelands Winery but had never stopped until this last weekend. We really enjoyed it. Tried 6 wines for $3 and then bought a couple of bottles. Nice atmosphere and nice people working there! Will definitely go back!

Stopped in today to get some sparkling grape juice! There is something wonderful about grape juice with Catawba grapes!

Great service and the tasting menu provided a nice variety. While not Napa or Sonoma, it's probably one of the best small wineries in the Midwest.

The employees were very friendly. They had a very good selection of wine to choose from and they allowed you to taste up to 6. At this winery you need to pay for sampling.

This is my second visit to Firelands Winery and both times I was very impressed with the winery itself. It is very quaint and well decorated. Much nicer than most Ohio wineries. The wine itself is average, although I am not a fan of Ohio wines and don't like sweet wines. However, it is still worth a visit if you... More

We visited the winery last Saturday. My husband and I both did wine tasting and was impressed with the tase and pricing of the wine. There were several kinds on sale and we ended up buying 7 bottles. I agree that you should not be charged for the tastings if you buy at least 6 or more bottles of wine.... More

As part of the Harvest Hosts program we overnighted at Firelands Winery in our RV. We arrived late in the afternoon of a busy Saturday and were promptly treated to an excellent and reasonably-priced wine tasting. The Reisling was a standout favorite, and we also liked the Vin Rose and the Pinot Noir well enough to buy bottles of them... More

We enjoyed the wine tasting. We ended up buying a case of wine. It would have been nice for staff to have deducted the tasting fees ($14) from the price of the wine. Staff were great with our kids, ages 8 and 9. They offered them grape juice and were very accommodating! We would like to see management recycle their... More

Very impressed with how educated the server was here. Been to many wineries and have never had a better experience. No cue cards, this woman knew her wines and was able to suggest new ideas for us. Sadly, they do not ship out of state and I'm not willing to travel 7 hours to refill those wines I loved.

Linda, I am thrilled that you enjoyed our wines and found our server to be knowledgeable that really is our goal! Your profile says your from Hanover Park Illinois which if I am not mistaken is a suburb of Chicago. While we cannot ship to Chicago we do have a distributor in Chicago. I know that Whole Foods and Pastoral... More
