June 10 Ribbon-Cutting Included Several Local Dignitaries; Portion of Proceeds from June 11 Donated to Wood County Plays

TOLEDO, Ohio – (June 28, 2021) Urban Pine Winery, a brand-new neighborhood winery, located at 3415 Briarfield Boulevard, celebrated its grand opening with a series of events earlier this month. The well-attended festivities took place in mid-June and included a formal ribbon-cutting held in conjunction with the Maumee Chamber of Commerce and the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce, as well as a grand opening celebration with a portion of proceeds benefitting Wood County Plays. With nearly 250 guests over the course of the grand opening weekend, Urban Pine Winery made a splash as it formally entered the local community.

“We are completely blown away from the amazing turnout for all of our opening events and during our first few weeks of service,” Jen McAlear, owner of Urban Pine Winery, said. “We are so grateful to be in a community that shares our excitement and passion for wine. This has been a dream of mine for so long, so it is really wonderful to see it all coming true.”

Fostering its commitment to giving back, Urban Pine Winery raised more than $800 in one day for Wood County Plays, a nonprofit organization that designs inclusive playgrounds for all children, regardless of size, mobility or ability. Reshaping the landscape of play, Wood County Plays seeks to build playgrounds for children that aim to improve their physical, cognitive and social behaviors.

Urban Pine Winery boasts more than 8,000 square feet of space. The winery features a double-sided fireplace, a private event space for up to 50 people and a large outdoor area. Serving more than 50 different wines, including classics and exclusive varietals, as well as a globally inspired food menu, guests have an array of choices at Toledo’s newest winery.

Hours of operation are Tuesday through Thursday from noon to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from noon to 10 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. The winery is closed on Mondays.
