ASHE Cuyahoga Valley Section October 2019 Meeting
"The Engineering of Canton's Gervasi Vineyard" with Ted Swaldo, owner and founder, Gervasi Vineyard & Italian Bistro. A native of New Philadelphia, Ohio, Mechanical Engineer Ted Swaldo had a dream to open a premier winery in Canton, Ohio and leave a legacy for his family. In 2009 he broke ground on an overgrown tree farm and 55-acre estate consisting of a historic barn in need of major renovation on 55th Street NE in Canton. In less than a year, he and his family transformed the picturesque 55-acre farm into an award-winning Winery, an outstanding Italian Bistro, a Marketplace and an outdoor Pavillion. Since opening in 2010 they have have added a Conference Center, Gervasi Village with six (6) Italian designed Villas (recently picked by USA Today as the best wine country hotel in USA), a new state-of-the-art computerized Winery, and a pub style restaurant called "The Crush House." In December 2018 he added a new distillery called "The Still House." It is a coffee shop by day and cocktail lounge by night. "The Casa" upscale bootique hotel opened in May 2019. The property has become a "Destination" and attracts over 220,000 visitors annually. One (1) PDH will be awarded for attending this event. Time: 5:00 pm - Social/Check-in 6:00 pm - Dinner 6:30 pm - Presentation Buffet Menu: Fruit/vegetable appetizer, Italian salad, Chicken Parmesan, Tuscan Beef Short Ribs, Past Marinara and Grilled Vegetables. Cost: $40 per person for members and guests $50 for non-members with the additional cost covering your new member initiation fee.
