Canton, Ohio (January 21, 2020) Gervasi Vineyard is Celebrating a Diamond Anniversary and has several special promotions and celebratory events scheduled for the month of March 2020.

Gervasi Vineyard’s history began a decade ago when owner Ted Swaldo, inspired by Grandma Gervasi’s (maiden name) and the family’s traditional Italian ways and cooking, saw great potential in an overgrown 55-acre piece of land with a two-hundred-year-old barn all located on the edge of Canton.

Ted had a dream of creating a place for people to come to enjoy time together with an alluring bottle of Italian wine and traditional Italian food all served surrounded by their own specially designed slice of Tuscany.

Ted’s son, Scott Swaldo, is the general manager and has been overseeing all operations and development.

“We started with the restoration of the barn in 2009, we knew it had to have an Italian feel in the design,” Scott said. “The rustic elegance of the barn is one of the first things visitors notice. After the barn, we built the pavilion designed with the same elegance, grace and style.”

The Bistro, which initially occupied the upper level of the barn, was opened March 16, 2010. A few months later, The Piazza (the outdoor dining venue located immediately behind the barn) was opened, and the surrounding vineyards were planted. The Tuscan-style Pavilion was also added to the estate the summer of 2010 to host large-scale outdoor weddings and events.

Gervasi Vineyard has continued to evolve and is now a destination winery resort offering a place for celebrations of love, marriage, birthdays, special personal events…and life.

The property has become home to a winery inside The Crush House (October 2013); distillery (January 2019); several distinct restaurants including The Bistro, The Piazza, The Crush House, and The Still House (December 2018); The Villas and Villa Grande with 24 luxury overnight suites (October 2013); The Casa, an upscale boutique hotel with 24 additional luxury overnight suites (May 2019); and The Marketplace, a boutique gift shop.

In celebration of the customer support over the past 10 years, Gervasi Vineyard is offering several special events in the month of March including:

Diamond Anniversary Promotions: March 1-31

· Receive 10 Loyalty Rewards points per dollar spent.

· $10 off bottles of GV wine on Wednesdays when you dine-in at The Bistro, The Crush House, The Still House, and The Twisted Olive. (Italian Collection excluded)
