NEW WINE RELEASE!:  

We are happy to announce the release of our 2018 vintage of Autumn Wish. The 2018 vintage of “Autumn Wish” is an estate semi-sweet white wine that is made from 100% Aromella™ grapes. ‘Aromella ™ is a new variety, recently released in 2013. Developed at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, Cornell University as a disease-resistant, cold climate grape. It originated from a cross between three other grapes, Ravat, Traminette, and Gewürztraminer. It is suitable for growing without excessive pesticide use as is required of traditional varieties. In addition, Aromella may be grown without grafting. Traditional grape varieties are grafted because of their lack of disease-resistance. Our vines are own-rooted, meaning that the root system is true to the desired variety, and not grafted.

All the grapes in this wine are hand-pruned and hand-picked, which contributes to the exceptional quality of this wine. The vines are grown using a GDC trellis system. The grapes were hand-harvested at 21 Brix, destemmed and lightly crushed. The pomace was allowed to sit for 4 hours on the skins, and then lightly pressed. Unlike other white wines, this example has a fruit-forward flavor profile, high minerality, and moderate alcohol profile of 12%.

IN THE GLASS: “Autumn Wish” is a fruit-forward varietal white wine. The aroma is very floral, similar to a Muscat-style wine. Tasting notes include peaches, tropical fruits, pineapple, honeysuckle, and citrus peel.
This is a great wine to pair with soft, young and mild cheeses such as goat cheese, mozzarella, Muenster, feta, Monterey Jack and mild cheddar. It is also a perfect wine for spicy foods such as dim sum, Vietnamese, Korean and Thai cuisine, as well as Indian curries.





Update on Pears:  (November 1, 2019) We are all done fresh-picking for the season.  However, we have a substantial reserve of Asian pears stored in our walk-in cooler.  We are keeping Hosui, Shinseiki, Shin Li, Atago, Shinko and Olympic.  Hosui will still be available in our market until sometime in December, or until our supply runs out.  Shinseiki will still be available in our market until January, or until sold out.
  • Shin Li has medium smooth, yellowish green skin with russet spots. The firm white flesh is extremely flavorful and has a sweet and spicy, cinnamon-like aroma. Large fruits like slightly flattened spheres. Fruit ripens in early to mid-October and keeps three to four months.
  • Olympic (Korean Giant)  Very large (16-32 oz.), attractive orange-brown russet, round pear.  Flesh is firm, crisp and juicy sweet.  One of the best tasting, late ripening varieties.  Ripens late October, early November.  Storage life is 8-9 months.
  • Hosui is a large to medium asian pear with a crisp, juicy off-white flesh.  Skin has an excellent golden brown russeting.
  • Shinseiki, or New Century, is a large to medium fruit with firm, white crisp flesh and a sweet juicy flavor.  Skin is yellow-green to pale yellow with small lenticels

    Frequently Asked Questions:


    Q: Do you have pick-your-own apples? 

    A: We do not open our orchard for unsupervised picking.  We do offer a Pear Hunt, which is a supervised tour of the orchard where the owner or an employee will tour you through our well-kept farm.  During this tour, we will educate you about the different varieties we offer, how to properly pick an Asian Pear without damaging the tree, assist you with photo opportunities, and hunt for the best pears in the orchard.  There is an additional charge of $5 per person, and the session is limited to 30 minutes.  The Pear Hunt is available only on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings, by appointment.  Call 216-534-9600 and leave a detailed message about your group size, when you would like to come, and the best way to contact you back.


    Q: Do you have apple cider?

    A: We do not offer apple cider.


    Q: Can we pick up apples off the ground?

    A: No, you cannot.  And no, we do not.


    Q: Can we come and have a glass of wine and some food?

    A: We only offer 1/2 oz. wine samples and bottle purchases during our normal hours.  We don't offer sit down service, and we are not a restaurant nor a bar.  We are a farm, and our focus is award-winning estate wine which you can purchase and take with you to enjoy or gift to someone special.  We can ship our wine with some restrictions.  We do have special ticketed events where we sit down, pour our wine into glass, and showcase our craft.  We post these events from time to time on our website and our Facebook page.

    Q: When does your season end?

    A: Grape picking ends at the end of September.  Apple and Pear season ends end of October.  We store apples and pears which we sell on Thursday, Friday and Saturday throughout the winter until our supply runs out.  We usually run out sometime in February.
