#1 of 10 in Things to do in Geneva
Ferrante Winery is a family-owned and operated winery since 1937. The original winery was established in Cleveland's Collinwood area by Nicholas and Anna Ferrante. In the 1970's, their sons Petter and Anthony built modern winemaking facilities in the family's Harpersfield Township vineyards. And, in the 1980's their families developed a thriving restaurant to showcase wine and food.

Nicholas Ferrante, third-generation Winemaker, boasts his Signature Series wine produced from premium estate grown grapes such as Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, in addition to our very special Ice Wines made from Vidal Blanc and Cabernet Franc grapes.

  • we visited Ferrante on our wine tour, and we were so glad our driver brought us here. This winery featured an upbeat atmosphere and delicious food and wine. Someone recommended that we try their pizza...  more »
  • Been here multiple times. Every thing is always real good. Our waitress was awesome. Always get there early because it fills up fast.  more »
  • This was our final stop on our wine shuttle. It was a fun, cozy place and the gift shop had really unique pieces that I don't usually see at wineries. It was very busy and the facility is just gorgeou...  more »

  • We come here all the time. It's one of the few wineries that serves sweet white wine, along with a variety of dry whites and reds. Their outside patio opens in May through September and has great entertainment every Friday and Saturday night along with an outdoor menu, that is substantial enough to eat and stay outdoors for the entertainment. They also have a full service restaurant which serves good food. Come on down and experience one of the better wineries of the area.
  • Beautiful patio and restaurant. Group of twelve, we were able to be sat right away without reservation. The food is good, Unfortunately two of the dishes I wanted they were out of or I would give 5 stars! Over all very enjoyable!
  • Second edit after most recent visit on 3/26/19: I love the wine, great wine! But with so much local competition, I always leave feeling there could be more. I always feel like I am missing something. That "something" is atmosphere. I am not saying I don't enjoy Ferrante, I certainly do. What I am saying is there is SO much local competition. It seems like everyone is always trying to do the next best thing while Ferrante sits back and watches. Is that a bad thing?........Original edited review August '18: Decided to give the restaurant another try. Dramatic improvement over our first experience less than three months ago. Food was excellent! A noticeable change in quality. Service was also not rushed like it was during our initial visit. I don't know if this is a sign of improvement or inconsistency so I can't just jump to 5 stars until I try it again. But my recent experience leaves me wanting to come back with confidence. As is always expected, amazing wine!!
  • We had an excellent birthday dinner here this evening for my mother. Our server, Dylan, made it even more fantastic. We had small children with us and he was extremely patient and helpful. Food and wine were delicious as usual.
  • Oh my dear! How lovely was this experience. I highly recommend it. Excellent 🍷 and really good food 👌
