Urban Vintner was founded in 2016 by Ed Trebets and Gregg Turk. We started Urban Vintner because we wanted to bring back winemaking to the city where our forefathers started their winemaking traditions. In San Francisco, pre-the 1907 Earthquake, there were over 100 wineries in the city proper. After the destruction that took place, the wineries moved out to what is now Napa, Sonoma, and the other growing regions. The younger generation is bringing winemaking back to the city and there are now 25 urban wineries in the city of San Francisco.
Our goal is to bring winemaking to the City of Willoughby. City residents and visitors will be able to experience the production of wine right in the city. The crushing and pressing of grapes will be on display at our production facility and tasting studio on North Industrial Parkway in Willoughby, OH. Visitors will be able to see production from grape to bottle.
The wines will be made from fruit received from growers that Winemaker, Ed Trebets has established relationships with throughout his career. The fruit will be gently processed and given extra care for them to be reserve wines and reflect Ed’s signature style. Urban Vintner’s first wine is a reserve cabernet sauvignon made from grapes brought in from Calaveras County which is southeast of Sacramento. Twisted Oak and Ironstone are two of the wineries in this region.
