Make Friends - Keep Friends
One Man's  Legacy....

In 2016, just two weeks after the winery opened, the Robinsons lost their beloved Dad, father-in-law and "Papa", Bill Broel, Sr. at the age of 83.  While he was able to see the winery taking shape, he never got to enjoy the business open and full of the friendly people who have made the first year such a wonderful success for our family.  He would have LOVED it!  My dad was a constant inspiration to us and always had words of support to share. So much of what we have been able to do is because of the foundation of love and the spirit of entrepreneurship that was shared with us by my dad. Thanks for reading our story.  ---------Judy

In the late 1960's Judy's dad, Bill Broel, Sr. bought the  property on the corner of Wooster Street and Bison Street and he and his business partner opened a welding shop (now the winery) on the "flat land" on Bison Street and later built a huge building for boats and camper storage. Bill was a visionary and  built the first individual storage units in Massillon.   With extra fill dirt during the construction of the Massillon Rec Center, Bill was able to flatten out the hill on Wooster Street, and started selling Amish made Miller Barns to local folks in Stark County.  All of this he did while working a full time job! 

Bill then met an Amish farmer and made a deal to start selling corn and vegetables on the same corner.  Bill used one of the Miller barns and created a produce stand, which he ran for eight summers until finally making Florida his year round home in 2015.  During this time, we learned from Bill that making and keeping customers, or "friends", was key to running a successful business! 
Oh...and then the City of Massillon annexed the property and changed the street names to Cherry Road and 27th Street (see the sign on the far left!).   

Production Facility/Tasting Room

So it wasn't built to be a winery and sure isn't pretty on the outside, this is our production building and tasting room. We had planned to build a new building on Cherry Road (thus our name), but we've decided to stay put for a while.  We've got enough room for a nice casual wine experience, and everyone has fallen in love with the outside (pictured above Tuslaw Class reunion party).  So we are going to expand on our current site and see where God takes this whole adventure!  

Sophie is our official wine dog!

Here's Bill at his Florida home and also working the produce stand in Ohio. We miss him!
