Chateau Hough Tour and Wine Tasting
Cornell’s course on wines was always one of the school’s most popular (and failed) offerings. Don’t
miss your chance to brush up on your wine swilling technique, drinking wine from Cornell vines
planted and grown right here on Cleveland’s east side!
Chateau Hough, started by Mansfield Frazier, is a vineyard and winery located in the Hough
neighborhood of Cleveland designed to give returning convicts and at-risk youth an opportunity to
earn a paycheck, as well as to make productive use of local vacant land.
Cornell worked with Frazier to develop a freeze-tolerant varietal of Gewürztraminer called
Traminette that is now producing wine at a time when many of the area vines were killed by the
polar vortex a few years back.
Join us for a tour of Chateau Hough’s vineyards, taste the wine, and hear Mansfield’s story of Chateau Hough
and how Cornell helped along the way.
