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

Up Coming Events

TONIGHT is Girls Night Out at the Speakeasy!
Mr. Speaks will be at the speakeasy tonight Oct 26 for Girls Night Out. He will have the outdoor yellow light on starting at 4:30 pm. The pass code is 18 & 21. You can text 740-405-2534 for closing time. Chef Ken will have flat bread with assorted options along with Rueben, Ham and Swiss cheese wraps available. If you are not a Anti Saloon Detective or member of the Temperance Society stop in and see our new digs.
Count Down to the Sand Hollow Halloween Party Oct 29th!
The 4th Annual Sand Hollow Halloween Party is right around the corner! This year the party will be held at our new Sand Hollow Winery Speakeasy, located at 57 S. Third St. – straight across the street from the Licking County Historic Jail. The party will take place this Saturday, Oct. 29, from 6-9 p.m.
There will be a costume contest with prizes for the top three winners, plus party favors for wine pairing and cupcakes to “die” for!
If you come hungry, not to worry, Poppy’s Roadside Diner Chef Ken Monroe will have his soon-to-be famous flatbread pizzas available for purchase. In addition, Sand Hollow has a great selection of Pearl Valley Cheeses, sausage and crackers to assemble a perfect cheeseboard for your favorite wines.
If you don’t want to come in costume, that is fine, too. There will be plenty to enjoy. In fact, there will likely be a visitor or two from the Jail of Terror haunted attraction going on right now in the county jail. (One might even resemble your favorite vintner!) If you dare to venture over to the Jail of Terror to get the bejeevers scared out of you the cost is only $16. If you are eager to go through, you can go to the head of the line with a Fast Pass for $25.
There is no RSVP required for this event. See you all Saturday!
Mr. Speaks is going to be available at 4:30 pm through Saturday!
Remember the Speakeasy is located directly across the street from the historic jail at 57 S. 3rd St.. Look for the illuminated yellow light at the peak of the roof. Knock a SOS on the solid black door with a peep hole and enter.  If it is locked please look inconspicuous while waiting for someone to open the door. After entering give these numbers 18 & 21  to Mr. Speaks or the first person you see to gain entry. BTW if the yellow outside light is not on. Mr. Speaks has received word from his informants that it is not safe to partake in any juice. If you are coming from out of town text this number 1910 to Mr. Speaks at 740 404 8971 or 740 405 2534 . Wait for his text response before proceeding to the Sand Hollow Juice bar.
BTW if you see someone that looks very familiar…he is! That is our favorite food truck operator Ken Monroe from Poppy’s Roadside Diner helping Mr. Speaks. Ken has made himself available to serve up great juice and a specially prepared food menu for his regular and new customers!
Winter Hours Are Upon Us
We will be open now only on Friday’s 5 to 9 and Saturday’s 2 to 9 until spring. However, you can still have your favorite juice at the speakeasy in Newark during the week. Text Mr. Speaks this message “1910”  at 740 404 8971. He will let you know his availability .

“Jail of Terror” is back and Jim is gone again!
It is that time of year when Jim is MIA at winery on Sand Hollow. But Cindy is keeping the doors open once again while Jim plays with demented zombies and vintage clowns at the Historic Licking County Jail in downtown Newark. For those of you that like to get the bejeevers scared out of you.  Stop at the speakeasy first for a juice bracer and then walk across the street for a scare you will never forget! For more details go to the Jail of Terror website. Check out this video too!
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.
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.
Important Notice
Before leaving, check your pockets and bags for our logo glasses. Recently we have caught a few trying to escape when the merchandise alarms went off. The alarms are loud and annoy our neighbors, guests and wildlife. Please help us keep the peace and serenity and rogue glasses here. Warning to Employees & Guest – Excessive frisking is not encouraged or condoned! Thank you Sand Hollow Winery Management
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.
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.
