Reborn Vintages   addthis
The Ohio River valley was once America’s greatest wine-producing region, at least before the Civil War. And even today at 16-million acres, it’s still one of the biggest in the country. And today there’s a renaissance going on in Ohio. Ohio winemaker Bill Skvarla says,“It’s gone from the perception that the Ohio Valley is grape juice with alcohol in it to where we’re now producing world quality and international award winning wines."

While glass blowing was known as early as 40 B.C., the first wine bottles weren’t developed until hundreds of years later.

The color of the wine bottle is more important than the shape. Colored glass protects the wine from the damaging affects of the sun and ultraviolet light.
