Wine Enthusiast names Cincinnati winery among best in U.S.

A Cincinnati winery has landed among the top 10 on Wine Enthusiast’s list of best urban options.

Henke Winery, at 3077 Harrison Ave. in Westwood, is No. 6 on the annual list of Best Urban Wineries.

Henke opened in 1996 and makes 15 wines in its cellar with the ability to produce up to 20,000 bottles per year. Owner Joe Henke sources many of the winery’s grapes from Ohio along with Kentucky, Indiana, California and the Finger Lakes region in New York.

Nearly 90% of Henke’s wines are sold on site. Wine Enthusiast recognized its “spicy Zinfandel from 100-year-old vines, a robust Cabernet Franc and a Seyval that’s a barrel-fermented sur lie style.”
