Matt & Tara Meineke are visionaries, first generation farmers, winemakers, entrepreneurs and proud parents of two wonderful daughters, Amelia and Madelyn. The couple met while working together at a hardware store in the small town of Chesterland, Ohio. Both Matt and Tara had successful careers prior to their entrepreneurial journey, Matt as a VW automotive technician and Tara as a special education teacher. In 2007 they acquired prime land with a vision to plant European Vitis Vinifera grape vines. The planting of the original winery property was completed between the years of 2008 and 2009. Both enjoy spending time growing and producing estate hand crafted wines, managing select growers’ vineyards while expanding their current farm operation. However the most rewarding part of running the business is immersing the children in all the madness while enjoying every second of the journey!
