Firelands Winery was founded in 1880 under the name Mantey Vineyards and has been producing high quality wines ever since. Join us at the winery in Sandusky Ohio and see what we are all about. There is a self guided tour that allows you to see the different aspects of production from an interesting perspective, a tasting bar where you can try a selection of our world class wines, and several intimate seating areas where you can share a bottle of wine with friends and family. All in all Firelands Winery is a great place to spend an afternoon.

We went with friends to attend the food exposition. The food was absolutely delicious and all for $20! We did buy a couple of bottles of wine to go with the food. The presentation was very nice and Chef Greg was so gracious. This was our second visit to the winery. All the staff is great.

Visited today to pick up some wines and to enjoy a few moments with some wine and snacks. This is not our first time here nor will it be the last. We enjoyed a tasting and made a selection of wines to bring home. This is in my opinion one of the best wine stops in Ohio. We understand now... More

New kitchen opened yesterday, 11-3, Osteria Gusto. We tried their rueben flatbread. It was delicious. Returned to the bar to finish our bottle of wine with our favorite server, Hannah!

I remember when it was called Mantey's, and just a tasting room and a gazebo in the vineyard. Since the late 1900s, Firelands has grown. Still a well-attended tasting room, expanded wine selection, personable staff. We always have a great time there.

This winery is one of my favorites! Always friendly and knowledgeable staff working to help guide you through their wines. A small snack tray is available to go with the wine tasting. There is also a very nice gift shop.

No matter what style of wine you like, Firelands has it. They also import some great wines from Italy. Claudio Salvador has quietly built this business into a regional wine powerhouse. The passion shows through in the wine!
