Whether it is an event, a holiday, a dinner, or just meeting up with a friend, John Christ Winery can turn any day into a celebration. Situated in the premier lake side community of Avon Lake, Ohio, John Christ winery is a popular gathering spot for casual evenings and planned events.
John Christ Winery began producing wine in 1946 when the original owner, John Christ, came to Avon Lake from Macedonia to cultivate vineyards and a fruit farm situated on an estimated 27 acres of land. When Christ retired from wine making, the current vintner, Jack James, began experimenting with the wine recipes and cultivated a new batch of exceptional wines. His talents are so remarkable that his wines continually bring home medals from the Ohio State Wine Competition for John Christ Winery. At the most recent competition 15 of their wines were entered and all earned medals, including 3 gold!
Everything is done onsite from extracting the grape juice to fermentation, aging, bottling, and labeling.
John Christ Winery bottles wine four to five days per week, all done by hand. One by one, each bottle is filled, sealed, labeled, and boxed in a mini assembly line.
OPEN: Mon.–Wed. 10 – 6; Thurs. 10 – 11 pm
