About Us

We are a small family-owned vineyard and winery located in rural Adena, Ohio.

We moved to this area in 1998. We had always enjoyed touring the wineries near our former home in Southern Illinois. When we looked out over new property nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of Ohio, we imagined that it would be a perfect location to start growing our own grapes. We decided to turn it into a business, and after much hard work, we finally opened to the public in November of 2008.

The name of our vineyard is a combination of our family name, and the fact that our property is a former sheep farm. We hope you can visit us and taste our wines soon!

Awesome vineyard! We sat on the back deck overlooking the vines and cows on the farm down the street. Only thing is - if you like dry wine, this isn't the place for you, which is why I gave it 4 stars because almost every wine on the menu is sweet. The owner is great and loves to sit down and talk, we learned a lot about how the winery came to be and it made me want to open my own! Atmosphere and the pizza on Saturdays is awesome!!

I went to Black Sheep for low-key bachelorette party with friends and we had such a great experience! We had a baby with us and the woman working was so accommodating and set up at a different table for the wine tasting so my friend could sit down with the baby instead of have to stand at the bar where they normally do tastings - such excellent customer service. She took her time with us and was fun to chat with. I will definitely be back here many more times. We especially loved the cozy loft upstairs with couches to relax and chat with wine and cheese. Thank you!
