A First in Findlay: Gillig Winery

. May 1, 2016.

When you think of Findlay, you think of wine-making, right? Well…Gillig Winery hopes to make that happen. 

Owned by Findlay residents Trevor and Nikki Gillig, the business held its grand opening in April at their cozy location, 1720 Northridge Rd. 

The Gilligs’ motivation to open the business came when they were enjoying a visit to a Michigan winery overlooking verdant vineyards, and noticed it was for sale. They were “inspired by their passion for wine,” Niki Gillig said. While grape-growing itself wasn’t a task they were interested in, the seed was sown to someday build a wine bottling business. After research, they decided to import juices from all over the world to customize their own wines. Originally from Tiffin, the Gilligs chose to live in and open their business in Findlay because of its economic diversity and its optimal size as a “bigger-small-town.”
