Enjoy our hand-crafted wines made with 100% Old World-style juices from Italy, Chile and America. Our Wines range from full body to sweet, all with a bountiful bouquet and unrivaled New World-style drinkability.

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.
Jim Young, Vintner/Owner

Sand Hollow Lake goes to winter level!
Due to a leaking overflow catch basin riser. The water level is now at winter level. Water activities will be limited to swimming, paddle boat, drinking and dangling your feet until further notice. We are looking at all our options for federal, state, pawn shop and quick cash funding. However, until funding is secured we will be open during the rest of this year and the next several years. While we work through this challenge

The Seasonal Closing Is Near.  
IMG_20160519_091231455It has been a great summer and I know many of you have been able to use the official Sand Hollow Winery IMG_20160519_091244862_HDRouthouse. We apologize for the wasp stings and raccoon  droppings. The shower will stay active until air drying is no longer an option for those of you that prefer not to use a towel.  The supply of Sears catalogs has been exhausted.  Please use the available paper products in the trash cans or bring your own. We are no longer looking for volunteers for the water closet attendant. The peek holes have been covered up and we do apologies for that volunteers indiscretions.  A thorough background check will be implemented for next years volunteers.

Live – Music Police I’m Playing You!
Latest BMI Update: This might be coincidental BUT after Evolution played and I posted the “Cease and Desist” letter in this newsletter last week the winery website was hacked. Google flagged it as a potential malware site that would be dangerous to open up. Unfortunately, it was necessary to hire a third party to clean my website of malware but I am back up and in the good gracious with Google. However, when inquiring if the site could have been compromised by a disgruntle person like my friends at BMI they said absolutely. If they can hack into the FBI, Hillary’ server and the White House they can surely get into a winery website. Hmmm probably should not have mentioned all of those sites now I’m on their watch list! Coincidentally the BMI letters and phone calls have stopped. That may change after this posting.
To see the previous “Music Police” post go to newsletter archives above.

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.
