Run Vineyard grows 58 varieties of grapes on 4 acres of vineyard. We have
a wide variety of hybrid and Vinifera grapes growing to provide a
complex array of flavors to make our proprietary wines. We grow
grape varieties hybridized in France (ie.French Hybrids), Germany
(at Geisenheim), Hungary, and USA (Cornell & Arkansas).
Vinifera varieties have origination in France (Chardonnay, Pinot
Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon), in Germany (Riesling, Kerner), and USA
(Carmine). We have a unique (and hostile) climate in this area of
Ohio. Winters can be very cold and some varieties need winter
protection. Summers can be very hot and humid. This requires
growing systems that are modified from others to provide the best
success. What this means is that Slate
Run Vineyard is a winegrower that produces
unique proprietary wines.
