Stopped by here while passing through. Easily one of the friendliest and most knowledgeable wine tasting experiences we have had. We also enjoyed the wine. Spend the few minutes to find this place if you're nearby - and enjoy the wine in this informal setting.

If you love good wine, especially Chardonney, don't miss a visit to Markko. Place isn't fancy but wait until you taste his wines.

If you like dry wines that are quality wines, stop and visit Arnie at Markko Winery. Not too many wineries can pull out bottles of Chardonnay that have been aging in a barrel for 16 years. It is an amazing experience!

Started in 1968, early for modern Ohio vineyards. Very good Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Riesling. Another vintner told us this one was the well respected granddaddy of the area wine industry. Very much enjoyed our conversation.
