|Slate Run Vineyard is
a small farm winery that was opened in 1997 by Keith and Leslie
Pritchard. Keith, an avid amateur winemaker since 1981, started
planting grapes in 1985 to support his experimental winemaking
pursuits. Quickly realizing that he planted too many grapes, Keith
started selling them to other amateur winemakers and small wineries.
By 1994, facing aging, burnout, and a wife that wanted to see him, Keith
came to the realization that opening a winery would allow him to utilize all the skills
and education that he developed previously in life.
Named for a small nearby creek, Slate Run Vineyard is in central-Ohio, southeast of Columbus. We welcome you to visit us, to taste any of our 16 proprietary wines, and to purchase some to take home. We can also ship wine, but only within Ohio.
