Welcome to the new Camelot Cellars under new ownership of Janine Aquino, fourth generation Wine Professional. Camelot Cellars is an urban boutique winery dedicated to providing customers with the highest quality wines, service and skill possible. Our products and services include wine sales, retail sales, handcrafting your own wine, the wine bar, wine tastings & flights as well as the Tuscan Room private event space.
Under new ownership, Camelot has been radically transformed back to the essence of an authentic winery. The interior reflects a vintage modern feel with Tuscan & French accents and expresses the Camelot’s foundation that ‘wine is art’ . This expression is reflected by way of showcasing local artists throughout and using local craftsman for elements such as custom made reclaimed wood tables using Ohio lumber, the newly expanded wood wine bar and the impressive triple framing of the Wine Wall.
The staff at Camelot Cellars provides the highest quality customer service, guidance and education when it comes to wine & winemaking. This attention to detail ensures the highest quality wines produced. The Winemaker handcrafts wine from premier vineyard juices sourced from around the world. In 2011 Camelot Cellars became a nationally recognized winery winning 31 medals in national and international wine competitions.
The Wine Wall reflects the true art of winemaking. Here you can select from over 80 varieties of wine including selections from around the world available for purchase by the bottle and many as your own handcrafted wine experience. Bottles range from $12 to $24 and we offer a full case discount of 10% and cases can be mixed with any variety you prefer.
Handcraft Your Own Wine
Craft your own wine under the watchful eye of our skilled staff. After 6-12 weeks of processing, you will return to bottle, cork, cap and label your own wine. Your experience includes designing your own label and selecting your style of wine bottle. Our staff will help you every step of the way and you can even design your own custom label. Schedule time to sample wines from our extensive menu & decide which wine you prefer. Perfect for special events such as weddings and anniversary parties or for your own wine cellar. Pricing starts at $199 for 15 or 30 bottle orders. Bottles, labels, shrink caps and corks are all included with your purchase.
Adopt a Wine – Adopting a wine is the perfect solution if you need your wine sooner than the handcrafting process allows. Just sample and select from our current wine list, then skip the handcrafting process (which takes 6 – 12 weeks) and go straight to bottling, corking, capping and labeling your wine.
Our newly expanded retails sales include branded wine glasses, wine openers, wine chillers, The Olive Orchard® olive oil, gift bags, stoppers, cheese boards, and other locally sourced wine related items.
Our locally crafted wood wine bar is a communal oasis where people come to sit, meet, and sample wines by the glass or bottle. Enjoy informative wine tastings and choose from a variety of flights in a casual setting where all types of wine drinkers are welcome. Glasses start at $6 and bottles start at $12 + corkage.
Experience an informative wine tasting that includes 6 samples of our wines and your very own wine steward. Your steward will discuss wine, describe wines in detail and answer any questions you may have about wine. We recommend making a reservation so please call us for details. To view a current list of wine tastings being offered look here.
Our wine flights provide an informal way for customers to sample 3 different types of wines. There is a wide variety of wines to choose from and flights are available anytime.
