Visit Laurello Winery
Laurello Winery is a boutique winery located in Geneva, Ohio. It is a favorite of those who frequent Geneva Wineries. Laurello Winery is owned and operated by the Laurello Family.
On a personal note, I have visited Laurello Winery many times. This is one of my favorite Geneva wineries! My favorite time of the year to visit is when it is warm outside.
Laurello Winery has a large outdoor area that is perfect for relaxing, listening to local music, and sipping on a local wine. There are tables available on the concrete patio, as well as picnic tables in the grassy area. Feel free to bring your own lawn chairs or a blanket to use in the grassy area.
When the weather turns cooler, you can head inside, where Laurello Winery also has ample seating. They have three different seating options inside. You can cozy up next to the fireplace on chilly days.

Cindy’s Insider Ohio Tips!
I hold numerous cherished memories of Laurello Winery over the years, having visited countless times. My absolute favorite moments are during the warmer months when I can relish sitting outside, listening to music, and savoring their delightful wine and food. It’s fantastic that they offer gluten-free options. A lesser-known fact is that the winery owns houses/cabins on-site, available for rent through a separate website. This feature truly makes Laurello Winery a one-stop destination, offering accommodations, delectable food, exquisite wine, and enjoyable entertainment!

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 Wine Growers of the Grand River Valley website for the current calendar of events.
How to taste wine
There are so many ways to taste wine; today, we are sharing our simple beginner tips for how to taste 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? 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.
