Charming winery tucked away in the woods. The wine we tasted was delicious and can stand up to California and France. This little gem is not cheap, however the quality justifies the price. The owner really seems to care about making great wine on his plot of land. Loved the rustic charm of this no frills spot. Their sheep dogs... More

Drove liked it seemed into no where. On unpacked roads. Don't waste your time. The place ,I hate to say is run down . The inside was filthy . Was not impressed at all. Did not care for the one wine that I tasted.

Don't let the negative reviews sway you. The location is a little difficult to find, the roads are dirt, the building does look like a cabin in the woods, the dogs do greet and welcome you to the property, it is a bit dusty inside, there's not much room for tasting, a mouse just might run past, however.... Arnie has... More

These wines are great. When I have people over for a tasting, I'll put out a Markko wine with both New World and Old World selections. The group always picks Markko Homage and Excelsior as their favorite wines of the group. It's a really cool, rustic location. This is a working winery that grows their own grapes, so be aware...

My friends and I have come to Markko Vineyard annually on our trips, and each time, Markko's gets worse and worse. This last time was the FINAL time we will ever return. The roads to get there are stone, once you finally turn in, you see a cabin like building and several tent like structures. Inside, a mouse ran across... More

I heartily agree with Steve S. We just left Markko. No tourist trap here...quirky place in the woods, but the wines...they are truly exquisite. Quite a history here too. Don't be scared off by the look of the place...true wine connoisseurs will love these wines.

Yep, it does appear more like a shack in the woods. It's small inside and the tasting counter is more like a window sill. But if you're looking for big, ornate, fake european, tourist crap from your wineries then go to Ferrante and drink they're garbage. Here's why you need to appreciate Markko: -They grow ACTUAL wine grapes(Chardonnay, Pinot, Cabernet,... More

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!
