This was my childhood home. 2701 Camba Rd. Jackson, OH. It was also the location of the Louis Jindra Winery and Restaurant which was owned and operated by my parents Louis and Jeanne Jindra. The Winery and Restaurant closed in 1990 but the building is still there and is used for parties and weddings. A few families have lived in the house since ours and it has undergone some renovations. The large barn was torn down many years ago to create more parking, and a few other small buildings are now gone as well as all the vineyards. The only wine part that was retained was the name "The Winery". So glad to have found this! Thanks so much!

This farm was purchased by my father, Louis J. Jindra, M.D., before the winery existed, and before my brother, Louis V. Jindra purchased it from our father. Both father and son, planted the grapes that became the vineyard; and our father; put his money into the building that ultimately became the winery and restaurant. In the early days, my father Dr. Jindra, kept our horses in the field to the right of the barn (in front of the building used for the winery and restaurant. It was sold by Dr. Jindra to Louis Jindra, when he retired. Do not remember the year; as I was and am still living in So. California.

My childhood home from 1978 to 1985ish when we moved out and across the road. Now owned by Rick and Debby Crabtree as "The Winery on Camba" it is used to host weddings and other functions.

My parents, Dr. & Mrs. Robert Smith of Medina, Ohio, knew the Jindras from Oak Hill. I came across an article from the Columbus Dispatch that was written the year the winery opened - not sure what year, but it notes the winery opened August 13. My parents lived in Oak Hill from 1951-1954 when they moved to Medina, Ohio. If you would like the article, please let me know what address to mail it.
