Lonz Winery on Middle Bass Island Awaits Renewal

20130729_132951 Rumors abound about a long-anticipated renewal of Middle Bass Island’s Lonz Winery, owned by the State of Ohio, but left vacant and unused since the tragic collapse of the winery terrace thirteen years ago this month.  Recent speculation among Bass Islands residents suggests there is viable interest in bringing the property up to current building codes.  However, no official statements have been released by state or local authorities.  Meanwhile, the historic estate retains its charm and character, as well as healthy fruit-bearing trees.
