We have traveled to a lot of wineries over the years but Pleasant Hill is truly a gem. Love the setting in the old log house with a deck overlooking the hills of Southeast Ohio. The food is excellent and the wine is extremely good.

Quaint place with excellent food and wine! The Italian dinner smelled delicious but we were there too early. The appetizers were excellent and great for a late lunch! The wine was delicious!

One of the best views in the county!!! There are several wines that we love. The food is awesome. We really enjoy sitting on the deck enjoying a bottle of Riesling and looking at the view. Highly recommended.

Nice place. Great atmosphere. Awesome views and scenery. Not a huge selection of wine to choose from but what they do have is pretty good. They have different monthly food specials, too.

This is a nice winery hidden in the hills. Lots of little viewing areas and quaint spots to be alone. The food was wonderful and the history of the place made you feel grounded. Wonderful experience!
