Firelands Winery was founded in 1880 under the name Mantey Vineyards and has been producing high quality wines ever since. Join us at the winery in Sandusky Ohio and see what we are all about. There is a self guided tour that allows you to see the different aspects of production from an interesting perspective, a tasting bar where you can try a selection of our world class wines, and several intimate seating areas where you can share a bottle of wine with friends and family. All in all Firelands Winery is a great place to spend an afternoon.

Nice selection of wine flights. Local wines and other wines Chianti flights etc. nice inside. They could fix up the outside area. Firelands make most of the wines in region. Wine flights are $3. Bottles are $12-17 .

I remember when it was called Mantey's, and just a tasting room and a gazebo in the vineyard. Since the late 1900s, Firelands has grown. Still a well-attended tasting room, expanded wine selection, personable staff. We always have a great time there.

This winery is one of my favorites! Always friendly and knowledgeable staff working to help guide you through their wines. A small snack tray is available to go with the wine tasting. There is also a very nice gift shop.

No matter what style of wine you like, Firelands has it. They also import some great wines from Italy. Claudio Salvador has quietly built this business into a regional wine powerhouse. The passion shows through in the wine!

We spent an hr & a half here. We choose a collection to sample & tried a few wines. Then decided which was our favorite & ordered a glass to enjoy. We also ordered a cheese plate which was great to enjoy w the wine. The ladies working there were very informative & nice. They offered some suggestions of places... More

Myself, my husband, cousin and his fiance went to Ohio for the weekend to check out Cedar Point for the first time. But during our free time when we were't at the park, we tried out this winery and we weren't disappointed. The staff were very welcoming, nice and knowledgeable. We all participated in a tasting which was only $3!!... More

We enjoyed this winery and the atmosphere. They have numerous wines, something for all tastes. They are in the process of putting in a very nice back patio for sitting outside but inside they have plenty of places to have a glass of wine.

I was more impressed with the wines than the winery itself. The outdoor patio and surrounding grounds are lacking the ambiance of some other wineries I've visited. But in all fairness, Firelands Winery is undergoing some renovations to allow for more outdoor seating as well as a kitchen expansion with a brick pizza oven. The wine flights are *very* reasonable... More
