Wine lovers are going to have even more space in which to relax at Matus Winery this spring. The family-owned winery expanded its western Lorain County facility, an idea that came from owner Bob Matus’ neighbor Frank, who had an 1850s barn he was going to tear down. Instead Matus and his friends jacked up the barn, put it on a trailer and pulled it down the road to their facility. It was “just like moving a big box,” says Matus. The expansion began in April 2008 and finished in November. Originally, there was only a main bar room, with little room for guests to sit. The new space maintains the rustic look and has more room for patrons who want to spend a peaceful day sampling a variety of wines. Every Thursday the winery hosts happy hour from 5-9 p.m. If you’re in the mood for dinner, visit the winery on Friday evenings for the catered meal. Be sure to try Martin’s American Concord — a sweet red wine made from Concord grapes. It’s named after Matus’ uncle, Martin.
