Best Local Vineyard/Wine 

Tie: Gervasi Vineyard, John Christ Winery

One can never have too much good wine, which might explain why it was impossible to pick just one favorite vineyard. Food and wine lovers make regular trips to Canton’s Gervasi Vineyard, not only for its handcrafted wines, but also for the delectable Italian food and drop-dead gorgeous setting. Located on a lush 55-acre piece of land, the estate is a popular site for weddings and other elaborate events. Gervasi offers behind-the-scenes peeks at the operation during regular tours, and food and wine pairing classes that expand the horizons of both novices and long-time aficionados, two additional reasons that Gervasi is a grape lover’s dream.

For seven decades, John Christ Winery has been handcrafting award-winning wines. What began in 1946 as a modest operation has blossomed into a robust winery that bottles approximately 14,000 gallons of wine per year. Throughout the week, wine lovers visit the tasting room to sample the latest batch of red and white, sweet and dry wines, all of which is fermented, aged and bottled on site. For a nearby wine-country getaway, enjoy a bottle of vino with a loved one in the warm and rustic wine bar.
