Henke Winery...

... ranks among "the top 10 urban wineries in the United States." Food Republic
...voted "Best Wine Shop in Cincinnati" by Cincy Magazine readers.
... makes Channel 19's "A List".

The Winery was established in 1996 quickly outgrowing its first location in Historic Winton Place. We then moved to the west side where we have been a mainstay for more than 15 years, providing a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for all.

The cuisine at Henke Winery and Restaurant is best described as American/eclectic. Chef Steve Anderson, a Cincinnati (West side) native, has been making exquisite soups, features, and desserts for Henke Winery. With a full Resume, including The Maisonette, The Palace, and Rondo's, you can expect a full culinary adventure.

All wines are made right here in our own cellar. We do everything like Mondovi except have vineyards. The Ohio Valley region offers many quality vineyards and Henke takes advantage of these resources as much as possible.

A very special thanks goes out to a large group of volunteers that help bottle the wine and come together like an extended family to make Henke Winery a success!
