Conneaut Cellars Winery prefers the small batch, artisan approach to wine making; and is distinguished for its award winning wines. The winery performs all of the winemaking operations at their 7,200 square foot winery located in Conneaut Lake, PA. Tender loving care is applied to each process, from the grapes to the bottle. The grapes are gently squeezed by small bladder presses and then aged in stainless steel tanks, French oak barrels, or Pennsylvania oak barrels. The winery offers a broad spectrum of tastes from the farm wines of our grandparents through the more sophisticated French-American hybrids to the noble vinifera of world fame. Some wines are labeled using proprietary names to promote the local area.
