MORLEY — Sandy and Aaron Sedine of Morley have taken their wine-making hobby to the next level, opening a new small wine-making business called Heavenly Vineyards.

Wine-making has been a fun hobby for the Sedines for the past decade. Though both of them still work full-time jobs, the couple decided to open up a business, offering a variety of locally-made wine. Since April 21, the Sedines have been selling as many as eight kinds of wine in a building Aaron, a mechanical engineer, built by hand.

“It’s a new and different kind of business for this area,” said Sandy, an art teacher at Tri County High School.

A black cherry wine called Black Jack is one of a few selections at Heavenly Vineyards available.

The Sedines are hoping to add some more flavors this summer, including blueberry, strawberry, peach and rhubarb.

Heavenly Vineyards has red wines such as a luminous dark cherry called Rusty Red and a full-bodied oak-flavored wine called Vieux Chateau Du Roi; white wines, such as “a spicy German tongue teaser with a fragrant aroma” called Valley White, and a deeply colored, cinnamon-flavored white wine called Big G. There are also fruit wines, including lemon and sweet tart cherry, and a dessert-style wine called BlackJack, which is a flavorful black cherry wine made with Michigan cherries.

Tasting room hours are from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

Appointments can be made, as well.

Heavenly Vineyards is at 15946 Jefferson Road in Morley.
