Historic E&K Winery
Engel & Krundivig Winery was at one time one of the larger producers of wine in Sandusky. Ohio's Lake Erie Wineries includes a photo of employees posing for a group portrait surrounded by their barrels and baskets of bottles in 1890. They are dressed as merchants or wine makers or cultivators, a tribute to the team work required to produce wine. The winery eventually becameE&K Winery, whose 1944 display included Haute Sauterne, Ohio Claret, American Muscatel, and Ohio Rhine Wine. The building that housed E&K can be found in downtown Sandusky today.
