Rockside Vineyards

Rockside Vineyards is Ron and Lynn Rutter’s family-owned vineyard and winery located in Lancaster, Ohio. We purchased the land in early 2007 and planted the first vines that spring. We now have four-and-a-half acres of vinifera, French hybrid and American vines surrounding the winery and tasting room. Our grapes include Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Chambourcin, Vidal, Niagara and various other wine and table varieties. The majority of our wines are made on site from estate-grown grapes as well as others from Fairfield County. Seven wines are currently offered, and several more will be available in the near future

Slate Run Vineyard

1900 Winchester Southern Rd, Canal Winchester, OH 43110 (MAP)

Slate Run Vineyard is a small farm winery that was opened in 1997 by Keith and Leslie Pritchard. Keith, an avid amateur winemaker since 1981, started planting grapes in 1985 to support his experimental winemaking pursuits. Quickly realizing that he planted too many grapes, Keith started selling them to other amateur winemakers and small wineries. In 1994, Keith came to the realization that opening a winery would allow him to utilize all the skills and education that he developed previously in life. Named for a small nearby creek, Slate Run Vineyard is in central-Ohio, southeast of Columbus. We welcome you to visit us, to taste any of our 16 proprietary wines, and to purchase some to take home. We can also ship wine, but only within Ohio.
