La Vigna Estate WineryLa Vigna Estate Winery makes only estate grown, produced and bottled wines. Our pre-prohibition winegrowing philosophy of on-time harvesting goes against the contemporary winemaking style of high sugar content and over-ripe flavors. The goal of making wines that strongly convey the “somewhereness” of the vineyard is our passion.

To define the Glacial Edge Area precisely in winegrowing terms is a matter that requires instinctive feelings. Historically there is much more to it. From Nicholas Longworth’s Sparkling Catawba to present day winegrowers the path remains the same. The first and most important key to quality is dedication, keeping an eye on the vines as the season progresses, managing the canopies to maximize the exposure each cluster receives, dropping crop where needed to balance the vines, and making that all-important decision about the right time to harvest. We work hard in the vineyard, and then we allow our wines to make themselves.

La Vigna Estate Winery is located about a mile north of Higginsport in the Glacial Edge Area approximately 45 miles east of Cincinnati, Ohio.
