For many years, the 5 open acres at the West end of Licking County Equestrian Center have been used as hay fields.
Thanks to Vicky and Jeff Christiansen, the ownership of these two parcels of land recently passed to Chelsea and Justin Francis. This is now the OFFICIAL future site of Equus Ridge Winery!
We continue to tweak and perfect our building plans, considering needs such as ample outdoor seating, an event space, and kitchen area. Once we are happy with our designs, they will be passed on to an engineering team, and then the process of calculating building costs and securing permits can begin.
Keep following us for more updates!
The hard work and persistence has paid off, and today we are excited to "open the doors" of our tasting spaces. Beginning today, visitors can purchase tasting flights, a glass of wine, or a bottle, and enjoy it here on the property during regular business hours. We look forward to serving you!
In May, we filed for an expansion that would allow us to serve our guests on site. Fast-forward past four months of emails, phone calls, health department contacts, confusion, etc. Today, we are excited to announce that as of this week, we are officially licensed to open our Tasting Venue!
As you can see, our space is completely outdoors. What a beautiful setting to visit with friends, listen to the sounds of nature and the farm, and enjoy a tasting, glass, or bottle!
As our tasting venue is subject to the weather, be sure to check our website, Facebook, and IG when making plans to visit us. We are wheelchair accessible.
See you soon!
