Jim and Sharon Sciaulino. A passion for making good wine.
Sharon James Cellars is the dream of Jim and Sharon Sciaulino. A dream they wish to share.
Both avid wine enthusiasts, Jim (retired from the auto industry) and Sharon (in the banking industry) are native northeast Ohioans with a knack for wine. The Sciaulino’s started wine making as a hobby at home in 2004 after years of sampling Ohio wines and traveling on many of the state’s trails. Wine making soon became much more than a hobby and more a way of life. Homemade wine was shared regularly with friends, family, and neighbors at parties and events. And the wine was good.
In 2009 Jim and Sharon decided it was time to chase their true dream of wine making. They planted a vineyard on their property in Mantua and started looking for a building to purchase for a future winery. In February 2011, they purchased the old White Horse Inn building in Newbury and started renovation. After months of saws, hammers, and of course some wine, Jim and Sharon were set to open their dream of Sharon James Cellars.
Jim and Sharon have been married 30+ years and reside in Mantua, Ohio with their dog. Come into Sharon James Cellars today and share their dream.
