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!
