Owner Jen McAlear and Her Neighborhood Winery are Recognized as the Best Local Winery

TOLEDO, Ohio – (July 18, 2022)Urban Pine Winery announced today that it has been awarded “Best winery” by Toledo’s local newspaper, The Blade’s, “Readers’ Choice Award”. The winery, which has been open since June 2021, has become a haven for friends, families and parties to gather in the Maumee community.

“We are honored to have been recognized for this award,” said owner Jen McAlear. “We are so thankful for the ongoing support we’ve received from the community. Our success would not have been possible without our hardworking team and the support of our neighbors.”

An avid at-home wine maker previously, McAlear is thrilled to see her passion turned into a career being recognized by the community she loves to be a part of. The 8,400 sq. ft. space is home to over 30 different wines, including classic selections such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir, as well as lesser-known grape varietals grown locally in California, and those from further-reaching vineyards of Italy, France, New Zealand, Chile and Germany. Specialty blends are created on-site as are custom vintages, with prices ranging from $18 to $60, and are then uniquely produced and bottled locally in a Maumee facility. 

The Blade’s “Readers’ Choice Awards” are announced yearly and highlight the best community business in multiple categories, including food and dining, retail, beauty and wellness and more.
