Debonne Vineyards

Debonne Vineyards was established during the third generation of the Debevc family’s viticulture history. Anton Debevc, a 1914 immigrant from the Slovenian State of Yugoslavia, purchased a general fruit farm in Madison, Ohio in 1916. Anton’s son, Tony Sr., helped expand the vineyard in the late 1960’s.

In 1971, Tony Sr. and his son, Tony, began their journey as commercial winemakers, establishing world class standards in the Lake Erie and Grand River Valley regions. Debonne Vineyards was founded as a winery in 1972 with the construction of a winemaking facility and a charming Chalet.

Ferrante Winery and Ristorante

The Ferrante Family has been producing nationally and internationally acclaimed wines since 1937, when they opened their first winery in Cleveland’s Collinwood area. In the 1970’s Peter Ferrante built a state-of-the-art winemaking facility in the family’s Harpersfield Township vineyard. Pete (Papa) Ferrante & wife Josephine (Mama) Ferrante created a legacy that now 5 of their 8 children are continuing to honor.

Today guests can visit our state-of-the-art winery, where third generation brothers work together with the overall goal of striving to maintain 80 years of tradition. Anthony Ferrante manages 40 acres of manicured vineyards, and Winemaker Nick Ferrante continually experiments with new innovative technology/techniques to keep his wines cutting edge.
In the Ristorante, sisters Carmel and Mary Jo Ferrante along with the entire extended Ferrante family and staff provide the ultimate dining experience.

Grand River Cellars

Grand River Cellars was first established in 1976 known at that time as the Grand River Wine Company. During its first few years the focus was on wine production and the growing of quality vinifera grapes. The initial winery opened to the public in 1978 and grew in popularity over the next 20 years.
The owners, Bill & Carol Worthy, decided to sell the winery in 1998. In August of 2005, Madison Wine Cellars, Inc. purchased the winery from the former owners and began to develop what is now called Grand River Cellars.

Inside Grand River Cellars Winery & Restaurant you will be welcomed by a warm and inviting atmosphere that includes a beautiful fireplace, many hand-painted murals, and a large bar area for friends to gather. The winery offers a large variety of appetizers, grilled sandwiches, and a well-rounded dinner menu.
