ImagePleasant Hill Vineyards, a boutique winery with tasting room located in Athens, provided a lovely atmosphere for the May Rotary social event held on Friday, May 15, 2015.   Several Rotarians and guests enjoyed the appetizers, wine, and good conversation.   Click here to see more photos from the event.

Pleasant Hill Vineyards is open year round Wednesday-Saturday 11am-6pm. The winery offers nine local wines and appetizers nightly. The Corders - Ross, Sandy, Nick and Anne bought the Athens, Ohio property and began renovations in 2012.  Previously a horse farm with rolling pastures, it provided the perfect setting for a winery. The vision of opening a boutique winery began in 2005 when Ross and Sandy had the opportunity to learn the wine business hands on from Lee and Joy Wyse, owners of Rainbow Hills Winery in Coshocton, Ohio.
