We’ve been to this winery many times, but what made this time special was that we met family there. My brothers and sisters are scattered all over the country, so it is rare that we get together. It was fun to catch up over lunch at one of our favorite destinations in the Toledo area.
Mon Ami was originally established in 1873 under the name The Catawba Island Wine Company. It was purchased by the Mon Ami Champagne Company in 1937. The winery has changed hands a few times over the decades. A restaurant was added in 1945, and the current owners have invested large amounts of time and effort in maintaining and enhancing the charm of the buildings and grounds.
Mon Ami is especially fun on summer weekends. Live entertainment, either inside or out, is scheduled on Friday and Saturday nights and on Sunday afternoons.
