 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 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.

If you didn’t experience the sound of Evolution last year don’t miss it this year. They have a unique and relaxing sound that lends itself to the surrounding environment. At the same time they are playing you can talk quietly with your significant other like you are on your first date. Disclosure for music gestapo’s: They only play their original music!
July 4th we will be open and Poppy’s will be here too!
If you don’t have anything planned for the 4th enjoy it with us. We will be opening at 2pm until 9pm.
If you want fireworks you will have to visualize them while staring off into the abyss lake side or watch them on TV when you get home!
Poppy’s Roadside Dinner winery schedule: June 24 and 29th Girls Night Out.
If you haven’t had Poppy’s comfort food you are missing something wonderful. If you have, you need to experience it again.

The long anticipated opening is finally here.
IMG_20160519_091231455It has been a long winter and I know many of you have missed being able to use the official Sand Hollow Winery IMG_20160519_091244862_HDRouthouse. It is once again fully functional along with the shower on the backside.  Unless you want to air dry please bring your own towel.  As in the past we will be supplying a Sears catalog or other suitable paper products for your convenience. We considered having a water closet attendant like they do in Italy, but couldn’t find a volunteer that didn’t expect to keep the tips. Maybe next year.

Winery hours changed.
Sorry forgot to tell you my mood changed along with the winery hours last Thursday, May 5th
The winery is now operating under spring, summer and fall hours. However, if you are in the area on other days please call or stop in to see if I am hard at work and in need of a wine break.

We will be open Thursday and Fridays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. We will schedule your special events on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays.

Live – Music Gestapo’s I’m Playing You!
Latest Update: BMIHere is the latest item sent in the mail. Interestingly I haven’t had anyone playing but I need to cease and desist! Can’t wait to see what they do after Evolution plays there unique and original music this weekend. Maybe they will pay us a visit.

Last Update: No more calls but emails that suggest the cost could be substantially less, go figure. As far as I know Nate Donchez didn’t visit me as he said he would or at least announce he was there. It might have been because customer Chet was looking menacing in the corner of the room! I am sure they will kick up their bullying tactics once they see that Evolution is coming back to play this month. As always I will keep you informed to the ever unfolding saga with the music gestapo’s.

[Here is my original post] 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!

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.
