Visit Ferrante Winery
The Ferrante family has been producing nationally and internationally known wines since 1937! That is a huge feat! In 1970, Peter Ferrante built a state-of-the-art wine-making facility, which is now known as Ferrante Winery.
However, in 1994, a devastating fire consumed Ferrante Winery, and the family was forced to rebuild. Today, 5 of the 8 Ferrante children are carrying on the tradition at Ferrante Winery. Nick Ferrante is a third-generation winemaker who keeps on top of new and innovative techniques and technology when it comes to wine production.
Ferrante Winery is a large winery. It has a HUGE outdoor area, which is great for listening to local musical talent when the weather is warm. The outdoor seating at Ferrante Winery has shade options as well as views of the vineyard.
Ferrante Winery also has a very large indoor restaurant, which gives a traditional upscale Italian dining atmosphere.
Also located inside Ferrante Winery is a smaller, more intimate tasting room and area where you can sample and purchase wine to go.

After reading multiple other reviews, visiting several times, and talking with other customers, the menu can be hit or miss. People either seem to love it or want to leave it when it comes to food at Ferrante Winery. It is a mixed bag.
Personally, when I have dined there, I had gluten-free, vegetarian options, and my food was good. Another common comment is the price of the food at Ferrante Winery. The food is a little more pricey here as compared to other places in the area. However, they do offer a larger selection and higher quality foods than other local restaurants.
When dining at Ferrante Winery, you can expect a variety of starters, salads, pizzas, pasta, steak, veal, chicken, and of course, dessert!
We went for dinner and got there early. The place was mostly empty and we were able to sit at the window looking out over the vineyards. The food was delicious and the wine was amazing. You can get samples of wine with your dinner for a certain amount of money (I didn’t look) and we had excellent service and excellent food. It was really enjoyable for both my husband and me. As we were finishing our food, the restaurant started to fill up quickly both inside and out. They do not take reservations.BethTK (TripAdvisor)
Cindy’s Insider Ohio Tips!
When you walk into Ferrante, the small tasting room is to the left. I love that you have the option to enjoy wine with a meal in their vast indoor dining space or outside. It’s the perfect spot if I’m looking for a more upscale dining experience beyond the typical charcuterie boards and pizzas found at other wineries. Ferrante’s ambiance feels a bit more “high-end” with its premium wines and gourmet food, and understandably, the prices reflect that distinction.

What to wear wine tasting
When it comes to what to wear wine tasting, it really depends on where you are going to taste wine. When it comes to Ferrante Winery, I would suggest you dress up a bit more than you would for other places. Let’s call it dressy casual.
If you are visiting a vineyard where it is warm, we suggest a hat, sunglasses, and, of course, sunscreen. The temperatures often can fluctuate in wine country, so dress in layers, think a scarf, jacket, or light sweater. Think comfort paired with style and a whole lot of sensibility. Leave the high heels at home; they are a tripping hazard when it comes to walking around many vineyards.
When in doubt, go with a simple outfit that is comfortable when you stand and when you sit. Typically, wine country “casual” is a little fancier than normal casual. However, it all depends on where you are visiting, the region, the state, etc. When in Ohio wine country, we have noticed that anything goes. You will see a mixture of casual clothing (think leggings and sweatshirt) and cute but comfy sun dresses in the warmer months.

Grand River Valley
The Grand River Valley, located in northeastern Ohio, previously covered by glaciers, now grows over 50% of Ohio’s grapes and is the home of over 30 wineries. The micro-climate of the area is prime for grape growing due to the extended growing season. Many of the wineries offer events 12 months a year, including tasting trails, live music, or pairing classes.
Winegrowers of the Grand River Valley
The Winegrowers of the Grand River Valley are a collaboration of Ferrante Winery and Ristorante, Debonne Vineyards, Grand River Cellars Vineyard and Restaurant, Laurello Vineyards, and Cask 307, whose mission is to educate the local wine consumer on wines from the Grand River Valley. This group of wineries frequently put wine trails together where wine lovers visit each of the six wineries, and they receive a wine tasting that is perfectly paired with some sort of food. Go to the WineGrowers of the Grand River Valley website for the current calendar of events.
