Wineries are Magical
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 we encourage you to continue to support all the businesses around Sand Hollow Lake. Thank you for your understanding. The management.
Hogg Head's Blue Smoke BBQ  July 16
It is their first time at the winery come on out and try Hogg Head's Blue Smoke Barbecue. They are a central-Ohio based mobile food truck and catering business specializing in smoked meats! "The tenderness of the meat and the way the smoky flavor comes through no matter what sauce you use is amazing." Check out their Facebook page.
Poppy's has two new menu items!
If you are eating lite in this hot weather or just want to protect your girlish figure like I am. The chicken salad with Sand Hollow wine grapes, walnuts, celery and light dressing is a great choice. But the chicken and bacon club sandwich is to die for! If that doesn't  suit you the ever popular burger and fries will be available. 
July schedule 15, 21, 22, 23 and 29th Girls Night Out 
Check Poppy's full menu online.

Road closed starting July 11th
Sand Hollow Rd will be closed for those guest that are coming from the East on US route 40. Please turn right on Cooks Hill Rd, the street right before Sand Hollow Rd., follow Cooks Hill Rd to Ballou Rd. and then turn left on Fairview Rd., then left on Sand Hollow Rd.. They are widening Sand Hollow Rd at the South end near US 40. I know that is a disappointment to those that like the banjo playing visual experience that the old road provided but for most of us we are very pleased!
