The Quarry Hill roots began with William Gladstone Gammie (Bill's father), born in 1903. William Gammie was one of four children, and were part of the massive wave of immigration to America in the first part of the 20th century. William, Alex, Margaret, and their mother Elizabeth acquired a farm, in 1931 in Berlin Township, which they named Gammie Brothers.

William and Alex Gammie bought the present farm on Mason Rd. where the whole family lived because it was during the Great Depression. The Gammie brothers’ primary crop was vegetables. Because of the well-drained soils, elevation,and nearness to Lake Erie, fruit crops soon became an important source of income.

To carry on the family niche of farming, Bill followed in his father’s footsteps. Bill decided to spend his time working the family's farm. In 1979 the farm was named Quarry Hill Orchards by Bill’s mother, because of the three old sandstone quarries on the farm's rolling land.

In 2004, the concept of the winery came to be. The McLellands approached The Gammies, and together decided to open a winery and named it Quarry Hill Winery. Mac McLelland, originally from Georgia, operates and co-owns the winery & vineyard with Bill. Mac was bitten with the "wine bug" while in Georgia after graduating from Auburn University,and once in the area, began an apprenticeship at another winery where he made wine and eventually managed the business for over seven years. During this time, he learned his craft and developed his passion for wine and grape growing.

Quarry Hill Winery has expanded, since its inception, with a new winery building to house the winery operations. This new building has opened and offers a most comfortable environment for visitors to enjoy the wines grown and carefully crafted on site.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
