 Enjoy our hand-crafted wines from the best available juices in Italy, Chile and California.
We welcome you to bring your own food to pair with our wines. However, we frequently have food trucks preparing their individual specialties and  Michael’s Pizzeria (740) 323-2080 in Jacksontown does deliver to us.
Looking for unique and different place to have a wedding, book or wine club meeting?  You will find our scenic location in Southeast Licking County a great place to relax with your friends.
Hope to see you soon in the tasting room.
Jim Young, Vintner/Owner

Up Coming Events

We are back from Italy.
Cindy and I traveled to Italy this past week and had a great time. The wine and food was great but no better than what we have right here in Licking County!  Our guest bartenders Doug, Keith, Tim and Sandy did a fabulous job holding down the fort while we were gone.  Further good news the guest bartenders assured me nothing free was given away, tips did not fund the shoeless children fund nor were there any outstanding tabs for customers! Cindy and I are looking forward to sharing our Italy experience with all of you soon.

Yoga and a Wine Chaser!
Don’t delay reserve a spot for one or all of the next yoga classes on Saturday, May 21, June 11 and July 18 at 12:30 p.m. Katie Gilbert, a RYT-200 certified yoga instructor, will take beginners and intermediates through 60 minutes of vinyasa flow. Focusing on breathing, staying present and stretching your body and mind. You will walk away with a sense of peace and relaxation and ready for a glass of wine! Bring your own mat, an open mind, and a thirst for wine.
$15 fee includes 60-minute yoga class and a glass of wine.
Limited space available. Email your reservation to and put Yoga in the subject line. Please pay at the door.

Winery hours will be changing as of Thursday May 5th
Jim’s mood and the weather has changed. The winery will be operating under spring, summer and fall hours starting Thursday May 5th.  However, if you are in the area call or stop in to see if he is hard at work and in need of a wine break.

Otherwise we will be open Thursday and Fridays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.
 “Girls Night Out” Last Wednesday’s of the month is back starting May 25th
Jim and Cindy will be showing off their new hats they bought in Italy!

Live – Music Police I’m Playing You!
During the past year the music licensing agency BMI has been harassing wineries relentlessly to pay them an exorbitant fee to have live music at their venues. The $1,500 fee they requested is not something many of us can afford or justify. BMI is using a software program to scan website for key words like Live Music, Bands and Playing to name a few.  Just for kicks and grins I have added those key words to this posting  to see how long it is before they contact me. Here is my disclosure, “I do not allow artist that play cover songs/licensed music at the winery. Yes I believe music artist need to be paid for their art.” I will report back how long it takes and the bullying response that I will get!

Since this posting I have received three letters and one email telling me I am in violation even though I have not had any live music!

Wine Only!
Please respect our need to follow state law regarding consuming other types of alcohol at Sand Hollow Winery.
You can try hiding it in a red solo cup. But really, how many of those do you see at a winery! All that it takes is one customer seeing the illegal consumption. Who tells a bar owner that files an anonymous complaint. Then we have to explain that red solo cup to the State of Ohio, Division of Liquor! Thanks for understanding.

Looking for a place for your group to meet?
