From Grapegrowing to Winemaking with Winemaker and Viticulturist Patricia Chalfant from Caesar Creek Vineyards.
Estate wines are made on site from grapes grown in the owner's vineyard, fermented, bottled, labeled, and aged in their winery, and sold in their tasting room. This is unusual for an Ohio winery, but it is Caesar Creek Vineyards objective to be true to the finest winery traditions of France and California where the winemaker knows and loves her land and vines, and makes the best possible wine she can from them.
Patricia Chalfant, 1999 graduate of Springboro High School, is the wine maker and vineyard manager at Caesar Creek Vineyards in Xenia. She holds a bachelors degree in biology from Ohio University, and a masters degree in horticulture and crops from Ohio State University.
Ages 18 & up. Seating on a first come basis.
