The Engels and Krudwig Winery was open from 1863 to 1959. It is now reopened and is currently operating as E&K Winery.
The Beginning of E&K coincides with the genesis of the grape industry on Lake Erie's southern shore. During the 1850's Jacob Engels began a wine importation business. He planted a 10 acre plot of grapes to the east of the city in 1860 and began erection of the winery building in 1863. By 1878, Mr. R.P. Krudwig joined the Engels family in the flourishing business, and together they became the leaders in the burgeoning industry.
By the turn of the century E&K Wines were famous across the eastern United States. E&K native wines were being toasted as far east as New York City and as far west as Texas.
