See All News

The Pro Football Hall of Fame and Gervasi Vineyard have partnered for the third consecutive year to produce a co-branded wine featuring the Hall’s iconic logo. The specially labeled wine, a Limited-Edition label, made its debut on Tuesday, July 31, at Gervasi Vineyard.


The 2018 Limited Edition Zinfandel is a dry red wine that presents attributes of blackberry, raspberry and black cherry interlaced with nuances of oak. Each wine at Gervasi Vineyard is given a special name. In the Hall of Fame series of wines, the Hall of Fame selected the name “Commitment” for this third edition. This ties into the Hall of Fame’s mission and the core values learned from the Game – commitment, integrity, courage, respect and excellence. Commitment is dedicating yourself to a cause, despite the challenges.

In addition to the Zinfandel, Gervasi Vineyard currently carries the first two Limited Edition Hall of Fame wines in the collection, “Excellence,” a Cabernet Sauvignon, which is full bodied with bold layers of black currant, black cherries and notes of plum; and “Integrity” a Chardonnay that is barrel fermented and sure lie aged, displaying elegant oak and fruit.

“We are truly proud to be a part of the iconic Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Enshrinement Festival,” said Gervasi’s General Manager Scott Swaldo. “Our limited-edition collectible wines align with the Hall’s five pillars of character and also embody key traits that we embody on at Gervasi Vineyard when treating our guests.” 

The three Limited Edition Pro Football Hall of Fame wines, “Commitment,” “Integrity” and “Excellence” are available for purchase starting today and sold at Gervasi Vineyard, at The Marketplace and The Crush House as well as at The Twisted Olive located in Green, Ohio for $39.00 per bottle (take home only). Gervasi Vineyard features 28 wine varietals with a focus on classical European varieties and includes three premier estate-grown North American hybrids. The wine varietals range from a dry Cabernet Sauvignon, such as “Excellence,” to a sweet Vidal Blanc Ice Wine. 

Winemaker, Andrew Codispoti said, “This year’s wine co-branding encore with the Pro Football Hall of Fame is truly elevating and moving. We are pleased to again share in this spectacular occasion. 

In celebrating excellence, integrity, and commitment, as a premier winery resort in Ohio, Gervasi Vineyard offers wine education classes, wine tours, and exclusive pairings tours for wine enthusiasts. Complimentary tours of the winery are offered every Saturday at noon, 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. at The Crush House Wine Bar & Eatery.
