Owner description: Firelands Winery was founded in 1880 under the name Mantey Vineyards and has been producing high quality wines ever since. Join us at the winery in Sandusky Ohio and see what we are all about. There is a self guided tour that allows you to see the different aspects of production from an interesting perspective, a tasting bar where you can try a selection of our world class wines, and several intimate seating areas where you can share a bottle of wine with friends and family. All in all Firelands Winery is a great place to spend an afternoon.

“Outstanding staff, nice winery, unique items for sale, enjoyable wines”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stopped in here and had a wonderful time meeting the staff, tasting wines, learning about the winery, browsing the items for sale, and learning about wines. The staff was fantastic, and even helped me with unusual requests. I was able to purchase wine bottle stoppers with a hole in them which I want/need for wine bottle crafts that I make. The staff was attentive and we never felt rushed or ignored. We bought wine to enjoy later, and were glad we stopped. We look forward to going there again and recommend it to anyone in the area or passing through.

“Surprisingly good reds”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We really enjoyed our wine tasting at Firelands. They had 2 flights to choose from- drier and sweeter. We went for the drier flights and really enjoyed them. Bought several bottles of wine to bring home to friends and family. Staff was very knowledgable!

“Cute little winery”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We were in the area and the weather was not cooperating so decided to go the this winery. Wine tasting was fun. You can try wine by the glass or by a group of selections. They have wines grouped for white, dry or sweet and reds the same. You choose your group and they bring you about 6 selections for $3.00. Fun thing to do on a rainy day. Cute give shop. Staff was very friendly and knowledgable about their wines.

“Great personality”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stopped by thanks to a pamphlet we picked up at our hotel. The wine was far superior to any other winery we stopped by and we were helped by the very friendly staff in our tasting experience. Try the port!
