About Rockside Winery and Vineyards
Visiting Rockside Winery and Vineyards in Lancaster, Ohio, will make you feel like you’ve been transported from the hills of the Midwest to the rolling vineyards of Wine Country. The winery’s 17 sprawling acres are managed by Robin and Valerie Coolidge, the owners of Wyandotte Winery in Columbus, Ohio. Their dedication and craftsmanship has made Rockside the producer of some the best wines in the area. Plus, the winery is less than an hour from the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls!
The winemaking process at Rockside Winery and Vineyards is based on tradition. Incredible care is put into each small, hand-crafted batch. Because of Ohio’s harsh winters and short summers, grape growing here is challenging and tricky. The Coolidge’s know that each vine must be expertly cared for to develop healthy, flavorful grapes. Their mastery of vinting shines through in the wine!
