Owner and Winemaker
Benny Bucci opened Benny Vino Urban Winery in July 2010 with a vision of creating an urban style winery in the heart of Perry Village. Trained at Missouri State University, Benny received his Enology certification in December 2011. Benny crafts his wines from fruit that is sourced in from Chile, California, Washington State and also local and regional grapes to create award winning wine.
Benny started making wine as a hobby as a young boy with his father and uncles and then the passion was born. After visiting Napa Valley for several years and being able to visit the wineries in Tuscany, Italy he knew that he needed to be involved in his life calling, the wine business. Benny worked for Debonne Vineyard in the cellar for a period of time learning from the ground up. After Debonne, he became the General Manager and Winemaker for Thorncreek Winery.
Once word of the delicious wines that Benny crafts started to get out, Benny Vino Winery was born and in his first year of opening, we awarded the Best Urban Winery in Cleveland by Cleveland Magazine. Benny has never lost sight of his passion and that is to produce award winning wines. In January 2016, Benny moved out of his Urban Setting to the heart of Wine Country in the Grand River Valley. Currently located on a 7.5 acre parcel that sits directly on the Grand River, giving the winery a destination that no other winery in the area can boast. Patrons agree, Benny Vino Urban Winery is a find for all that come by.
