Matt & Tara Meineke are visionaries, first generation farmers, winemakers, entrepreneurs and proud parents of two wonderful daughters, Amelia and Madelyn. The couple met while working together at a hardware store in the small town of Chesterland, Ohio. Matt and Tara both had successful careers, Matt as an automotive technician and Tara as a special education teacher. In 2007 they acquired prime land with a vision to plant to European Vitis Vinifera grape vines. The planting of the original winery property was completed between the years of 2008 and 2009. Today they spend their time growing and producing estate hand crafted wines, managing select growers’ vineyards, expanding their current farm, running the business and of course immersing the children in all the madness while enjoying every second of the adventure!
