Virtual Wine Tasting Experience
Join Dancing Birds Wine Tours as Destiny Burns takes on an interactive virtual wine tasting experience of her wines at CLE Urban Winery on Wednesday May 13 at 7 p.m. While this event is free, registration is required. Click here to register today!
CLE Urban Winery brings the unique concept of a working winery and tasting room to the historic urban setting of the Cedar-Lee neighborhood of Cleveland Heights, Ohio. They don’t have a vineyard – their wines are hand-crafted and bottled on-site in our craft brewery-style winery and are made from premium juice sourced primarily from the US west coast and branded to honor and celebrate the city of Cleveland.
Their wine production area is located behind glass across from the Tasting Bar and is designed and built so that their winery operations are performed in full view of their customers. They recently expanded the footprint of their wine production and bonded storage areas to almost double in size, and added space for more barrel aging of their wines. You can now see the whole winery from the storefront window on Lee Rd!
CLE Urban Winery is located at
2180B Lee Road
Cleveland Heights, OH 44118
