Buckeye Lake Winery

The Winery is Closed until further notice due to a fire!

Dear friends and family of Buckeye Lake Winery. It saddens us to inform you that we will be closed the next several weeks due to a fire that took place last night in our kitchen. We want to ensure everyone that our team is working diligently to get back on track for this summer. We will be assessing all public events, private events, weddings and concerts on a case by case basis. Thank you to anyone who has reached out on behalf of Tracy and Laura Higginbotham and our team. We will do our best to keep you all informed on our process of moving forward. We believe that this is a minor setback and we will come back stronger than ever.

IMG_1028I have always had a passion for good food and great wine. After spending over 20 years in Corporate America, I chose to shift gears and turn my love of food and wine into a legacy for my family. Buckeye Lake Winery is committed to producing great wine by bringing the Napa Valley experience home and creating an atmosphere of relaxation and recreation on the waters at Buckeye Lake.

We work directly with growers in the Napa Valley, Russian River Valley, Sonoma and Lodi Regions. We travel to California each Fall to evaluate the grapes and determine when to harvest, coordinate and participate in the harvest, lease space at custom crush facilities, ferment the grapes and coordinate the logistics to get the young raw wine back to our facilities for aging, blending and bottling. This hands on approach from start to finish ensures a Napa quality wine since we start with the grape. We are also growing and buying local to produce a delightful Ohio style wine on premise.

My vision for Buckeye Lake Winery is to create a casual but elegant restaurant and winery that pairs simple foods with great wines. Whether it’ s a casual dinner or a special event, my dream is to create a wonderful destination place with beautiful views, comfortable food and great wine.
