Visit Kosicek Winery
Kosicek Winery is a family winery located in Harpersfield, Ohio. The Kosicek family has been grape farming in Northeast Ohio since 1929. In 2012, Tony Kosicek (a third-generation farmer) and his wife Mauri established Kosicek Winery also named Kosicek Vineyards.
The grapes that make Kosicek Wines are grown along Lake Erie. Kosicek Winery is considered a state-of-the-art winery and Kosicek Winery produces a range of wines sourced from the estate vineyards. Their children (fourth generation) are also involved in the business.
Kosicek Winery has plentiful indoor and outdoor seating. Indoors you can sit at the bar or claim one of the tables. There is also bar-type/ high tabletop seating located against the windows that look out to the vineyards. The inside of Kosicek Winery is decorated nicely with modern earthy tones.
If you are lucky enough to visit Kosicek Winery on a warm day, the winery has a very large outdoor deck to sit at. The deck is often covered with a sunscreen. There is also a very large covered pavilion outside.
Kosicek Winery does offer events at its vineyard. When things warm up in spring, their live music schedule will resume!

How to taste wine
There are so many ways to taste wine, today we are sharing our simple beginner tips for tasting wine.
- First, look at the wine. Note how the light may filter through the wine.
- Second, smell the wine. Are there any aromas you can pinpoint?
- Third, swirl the glass, then sniff again. Did any new aromas appear?
- Fourth, take a sip of the wine. Note how the wine feels in your mouth and how it tastes. Does the wine dry a certain part of your mouth, also does it have an initial taste?
- The Fifth and final step is to swallow the wine and note if there is an aftertaste. Those are the basic beginner steps to taste wine.
Kosicek Winery Food Menu
Kosicek Winery has some delicious food options. You can expect traditional meat boards, cheese plates, and bread dipping plates. You can also find some very good soft pretzel sticks and flatbread pizzas. What we found to be the stand out was the apple strudel. Why not order a piece when you visit Kosicek Winery? You will not be disappointed!
We loved the new pavilion that has been constructed since our last visit. When you travel with two dogs, you are always looking for places that you can go and bring them along. My husband enjoyed their oaked Chardonnay and their Riesling was delicious, not too sweet for my tastes.Wendy J (TripAdvisor)
