Ed Trebets Offers Insight to Ohio Wine Industry for Crain's Cleveland Business
Kent State University at Ashtabula Wine Degrees faculty member Ed Trebets was interviewed for a recent story for Crain's Cleveland Business, commenting on the growth of the Ohio wine industry.
Trebets told the publication, "While a lot of industries took a hit during the recession, our industry was either stable or increased, depending on the winery. Coming out of that, you're getting some serious entrepreneurs putting millions into wineries. That's happening in Ohio now. My prediction is, in the next five to 10 years, it will swing toward those just wanting to invest." Trebets also commented on the marketing of the industry as well as his two brands, Muddy Paws and Urban Vintner.
The article also included comments from other Ashtabula area winemakers.
