We have been to quite a few wineries in the last year but Meranda-Nixon is one of the most inviting we have found. The owners made us feel very welcome and were enthusiastic about not only their wines but wines from their neighbors and Ohio in general. We picked up our Ohio Wines Cork Board and got our first cork. They shared with us their wines and made us feel like long lost friends. They encouraged us to continue our quest to visit the other Ohio wineries and even mentioned a few of their favorites.

If you are looking for a light summer sweet wine we recommend the Trotter White Wine and for something a little drier (but not too dry) we recommend the Red Oak Creek (not oaked but named after the creek on their property).

If you are looking for great wine, wonderful asnosphere and lively conversations about wine, grapes and life in general Meranda-Nixon should be on your MUST visit list.

For more information and directions please visit their web site at www.meranda-nixonwinery.com or on facebook @merandanixonwinery.

Also if you are hungry we recommend stopping at the Lake Manor Restaurant.
