Become a member 

The Ohio Wine Producers Association welcomes you to join our Winery, Friends, Suppliers, or Growers Members organizations. 

Winery Membership

Are you an Ohio winery? For information on joining the association, please call 440-466-4417.

Future Wineries Membership

As a winery planning to open in the not too distant future, our office invites you to take advantage of the services of the OWPA to help support a smooth transition from original concept to opening your doors.  

While we are not attorneys, OWPA has worked with dozens of wineries in various stages of development, assisting with advice, recommendations for professional assistance, general marketing suggestions and practical hints to avoid some pitfalls others have experienced.  

This level of membership also entitles you to receive regular industry mailings and updates, so that when your doors do open, you can take full advantage of the services offered. 

A web listing also affords future customers access to your general information long before your tasting room is ready for guests. 

Join today, or call 440-466-4417 for more information. 

Grower Membership $50

As a winegrower who supplies fruit to our member wineries, we invite you to support the organization that helps build the market for your grapes and other fruits. We will also spread the word about the kinds of fruit you grow -- and make that information available to those interested in buying your products. 

In addition, when issues relating to agriculture, grapes and wine come up in Columbus, in Washington DC or even on the local level, we are there to represent your needs and protect your interests.  

Supplier Membership

The purpose of the Supplier Membership program is to establish a network between and among wine industry vendors, our winery members and the Ohio Wine Producers Association. 

From Advocacy and Communications to Networking and Professional Development and Industry Liaisons, OWPA encourages all members, wineries and affiliates alike to focus on what they do best and then to provide opportunities which mutually benefit all involved.  

We invite you to join our organization. Enclosed with this letter is a history of the work of the association as well as an outline of the various levels of membership and samples of both the 'Tuesday Tidbits' and 'Industry Alert' emails. 

The value of membership is delivered through:

  • Advocacy - Protecting and Promoting Your Interests
