Walt Churchill’s Market, 3320 Briarfield. Maumee, (419) 794-4000. 12:00 – 5:00 PM. Old Vine American Wine. There are not many old grapevines left in America. Prohibition devastated the American wine industry and then the colonization of Cabernet, Merlot, and Chardonnay in the 1970s destroyed most of what was left. But there are still pockets of 75+ year old vines still around. They are just very rare. That’s what we’re going to taste. Nominal fee per sample.
