“For many adults in the area, the mention of Sandy Ridge Farm immediately stirs fond memories of apple orchards , fresh pressed cider, square dances, Christmas trees, and a sense of community. Unfortunately, the farm closed for a period, and as time passed there was a generation that did not get to experience this historic arena as we did. In restoring Sandy Ridge, we hope to create a destination where new memories are created and old memories are shared by past, present and future generations.”
Although the majority of the apple orchards were removed years ago, the land is amazingly fertile and perfect for grape growing. Ohio as a wine destination is continuing to garner well deserved attention, and we felt the location was an ideal fit for local vineyard expansion efforts. I’ve had great success with Snowbirds Vintners, and it just feels right to extend that passion here locally in Ohio.”
- Chef Jamie McFadden, Owner, Sandy Ridge Vineyards
Lovely atmosphere! Great outdoor area in the mild Ohio weather today! Indoor farmhouse is a great place for receptions or parties. They only serve a few of their own wines and the others are favorites found by the owner so it makes for a nice selection. The menu has a great variety, including salads large enough for two (really)! Saw several other dishes being brought out that looked wonderful. We had crab and artichoke dip with a toasted baguette loaf that was to die for! And the hydrangeas were absolutely beautiful!
Best dining we've had in a long time. We had BBQ duck and scallops. They were excellent. A great experience.

Once the Home of Sandy Ridge Farm -
Sandy Ridge Vineyards & Mercantile reopened as a fresh concept for the Norwalk, Ohio community. Featuring a tasting room with deliciously fresh dishes created by Jamie, Sandy Ridge is also home to a local market with freshly baked goods and sweets, regular live entertainment, a neighborhood gathering space, and wines-available either for purchase, or to sip by the glass. The design and layout of the restoration project features warm, natural reclaimed wood, wrought iron trimmed sliding barn doors, and bright, textural elements like armless tufted mid-Century modern chairs in azure blue vegan suede.
At the center of the mercantile is the McFadden family’s cherished heirloom, a 1928 Model A Ford Roadster, pristinely cared for and on display for guests to enjoy up close and in person.
