Our Story

Sapphire Creek Winery & Gardens is nestled among ten acres of secluded woods and streams and the 11,000 square foot building is indeed the hidden gem of the Chagrin Valley.  Boasting 28-foot barn wood ceilings and panoramic glass windows, the winery embraces a modern and sophisticated aesthetic while at the same time is inviting and comfortable. 

Sapphire Creek Winery & Gardens is the vision of Kathleen and Andy Dangelo who fell in love with the seamless incorporation of indoor and outdoor spaces prevalent at Napa Valley wineries.  As life-long residents of the Chagrin Valley, they realized this experience was lacking in northeastern Ohio.  They also realized that they could use the landscape design and installation prowess of their company, The Ohio Valley Group, to create unrivaled outdoor spaces. The 15 acres of wooded property that they owned and used only a small portion of for their landscape design company, The Ohio Valley Group, Inc., was the perfect location to bring this vision to life.  In early 2016 they began the design/build process and opened Sapphire Creek Winery & Gardens in March 2018.

The perfect complements to Kathleen and Andy are Kimberly and Jimmy Gibson.  The Gibsons are also life-long residents of the Chagrin Valley and are the successful owners of Hungry Bee Catery and Cultivate in Chagrin Falls.  Kimberly McCune Gibson is also well known for her appearances on the popular Food Network show, Chopped.  The Gibsons bring their culinary knowledge to the Sapphire Creek team creating an unrivaled guest experience with both world-class food and unparalleled service for both The Restaurant at Sapphire Creek and Events at Sapphire Creek.

The Sapphire Creek team of the Dangelos and Gibsons combined to form Sapphire Creek:

A place of natural beauty and sophisticated aesthetics where tradition meets innovation.  Sapphire Creek is an unrivaled destination where world-class food, wine and service meet among spectacular art, gardens and architecture.  Sapphire Creek Winery & Gardens truly inspires all of the senses.
