Welcome to Terra Cotta Vineyards

Terra Cotta Vineyards was established in 1995 as a result of touring wineries and vineyards in Ohio for several years. After searching for the right location for 3 ½ years, we built the winery and planted grapes. The winery opened September 1999.

On a visit to Terra Cotta, you can sample the wines to find your favorite, and relax with a glass of wine on the back porch or inside tasting room. Cheese and crackers and Nosh plates are available to enjoy with the wines. Our view is gorgeous and you might even see an awesome sunset!

Chef in the Vineyard Dinners are held monthly by reservation. The dinner is a 2 entrée multicourse dinner where the finale is a flaming dessert presentation! These dinners are a great way to celebrate a special event! It’s a unique food and wine experience! Dates for the dinners are on the Event page.

Cookouts are held May through October and are perfect to enjoy with family and friends! We provide your choice of strip steak, marinated pork, or salmon and you are the chef that cooks it to perfection on our charcoal grills! The dinner includes a salad, baked potato, vegetable, bread and wine. Weather permitting these dinners are held outside but inside seating is available. Check the Event page for cookout dates and call for reservations!

Whether you’re planning a visit to sample wines, or organizing a get together, Terra Cotta provides the perfect atmosphere! Private dinners and functions are available.

Our license permits Terra Cotta wines as the only alcohol on site per Ohio Liquor Control. We must enforce this regulation to protect our license and appreciate your cooperation!

We're pleased to annouce that Paul received the Directors Choice Award for the Best Red in Ohio for Chambourcin! Director Daniels presented the Award to Paul yesterday, May 22, 2013, at the Legislative Tasting at the Statehouse. Paul was quite surprised and very appreciative of receiving the award with so many great reds being made in Ohio! Way to go Paul!

When coming to Terra Cotta from Moose Eye Rd there is now a 3 way stop at Moose Eye and Zane Trace Rd. Our original directions indicated to turn onto Moose Eye Rd and go to the stop sign then turn right onto Rix Mills Rd. Now you will go to the SECOND stop sign once you turn onto Moose Eye then turn right onto Rix Mills Rd (no current Rix Mills Rd street sign but it's coming soon).

Chef in the Vineyard Dinners are a great way to celebrate special events. Chef Bill Bird prepares a dinner monthly at Terra Cotta where each dinner ends with a flaming dessert presentation by the chef in the tasting room! Very impressive...and delicious! Cookouts are held May through Oct by reservation. If a group would like to have a cookout (for 20 or more) outside these months, give us a call. Check the events tab of our website for schedules for the dinners and cookouts.
