Our History


Madison Wine Cellars, Inc. is comprised of some well known faces and names in the Ohio wine industry. The group is comprised of two families that have worked closely together for years.

Tony Debevc, owner of Debonne Vineyards-Ohio’s largest estate winery, will be in charge of wine production.

Cindy Lindberg, event coordinator at Debonne and former school psychologist with the Mayfield City School District, will be in charge of the day to day operations of the winery.


 Grand River Cellars was first established in 1976 known at that time as the Grand River Wine Company. During its first few years the focus was on wine production and the growing of quality vinifera grapes. The initial winery opened to the public in 1978 and grew in popularity over the next 20 years.

The owners, Bill & Carol Worthy, decided to sell the winery in 1998. In August of 2005, Madison Wine Cellars, Inc. purchased the winery from the former owners and began to develop what is now called Grand River Cellars.

Inside the new Grand River Cellars you will be welcomed by a warm and inviting atmosphere that includes a beautiful fireplace, many hand painted murals, and a large bar area for friends to gather. The winery offers a large variety of appetizers, grilled sandwiches, and a well-rounded dinner menu.
