Cincinnati Winery One of Top U.S. Urban Wineries

Wine Enthusiast named Cincinnati’s Henke Winery one of top urban wineries in the United States.  The magazine bestowed this honor on nine U.S. wineries and Henke is the only top urban winery located in the Midwest.

During 2012, Henke Winery owner Joe Henke graciously provided Midwest Wine Press with a private tour of his winery and restaurant.  As detailed in the MWP article below, Henke is a master of using oak barrels to enhance cold hardy wines.  Many of the grapes used to make Henke’s wines come from Ohio and the Midwest.

FoodRepublic also named Henke Winery as one the nation’s best urban wineries during 2012.  So if you’re in the Queen City and want to visit one of the Midwest’s best wineries in a distinctive part of the city, book a reservation at Henke Winery.
