2010 Excellence Award for Tourism Presented to Raven's Glenn Winery

Raven's Glenn Winery, 56183 CR 143, West Lafayette, Ohio (740) 545-1000,  has been selected as this year’s recipient for the 2010 Excellence Award for Tourism by the Eastern Ohio Development Alliance.

The winery is located in East Central Ohio and considers itself  "Ohio's crown jewel of wineries." Robert and Renee Guilliams entered the winery business in 2003 with a focus on crafting quality wines and how, if paired correctly, they can create a sustainable relationship to the hospitality trade. Robert Guilliams, co-owner says, “We have designed our facility around becoming a distinctive winery and restaurant destination.”

“This is a well-deserved award for a signature business that brings commerce from all over the state to our community, “said T.J. Justice, Coshocton Port Authority executive director.

The winery's slogan came about several years ago when an elderly visitor to Raven’s Glenn remarked, “this has got to be “Ohio’s Crown Jewel of Wineries” and the phrase stuck. Raven’s Glenn now attracts more than 55,000 visitors per year from Ohio and surrounding states.
