The Mazza family has been making wine on the shores of Lake Erie for more than 50 years. Beginning with a single vineyard in 1972, Mazza now operates three distinct locations in the Lake Erie AVA, producing more than 475,000 gallons of fresh juice and wine annually with approximately 600 acres under grape and grain cultivation. Mazza’s family of brands includes numerous and award-winning wines, spirits, and beers distributing to national and international markets.
Mazza Vineyards is the family’s flagship winery. Since its beginning, the brand and its wines have been inspired and influenced by a diverse lineage of international winemakers from New World winemaking regions across the globe. Their clean and experimental approach to winemaking has resulted in a fascinating wine list that ranges from crisp and pristine to robust and fruit-forward. Nearly every vintage features their signature Ice Wine of Vidal Blanc, showcasing the family’s legacy of trailblazing winemaking and the distinct effects of Lake Erie’s cold climate.
South Shore Wine Company stands as a tribute to the Lake Erie AVA’s storied heritage of sparkling wine production on the site of Erie County’s first commercial winery. The Mazza family restored the 19th century facility and its Civil-War-era cavern, which is now home to an effervescent collection of bubbly bottles produced in traditional, contemporary, and experimental methods. From grapes to grain, we partner closely with local growers, and some of the agricultural products that end up in our bottles are grown right on our own property.
