Heineman Winery

Heineman Winery The Heineman Winery was founded in 1888 by Gustav Heineman, an immigrant from Baden-Baden, Germany, the grape growing region of that country. The Lake Erie Islands were already noted for the quality grapes as a result of ideal soil conditions and the long growing season because of the tempering effect of Lake Erie. Today the third and fourth generations of Heinemans, Louis and Edward, share the family wine making tradition. The Heinemans and other local growers cultivate 50 acres of grapes on the island. This gives the winery "vine to wine" quality control year after year. The Lubrusca, or native grapes are are grown on South Bass. The two major varieties are Concord and Catawba. These are used in to produce two grape juices and many of the wines including the most popular, Pink Catawba. Ives, Delaware and Nia gara are other examples of Labrusca grapes grown on the Island.
