June 9th, 2018 will kick off the 15th annual Wine at the Mill Fundraiser to benefit the Wolf Creek Grist Mill. The event begins at noon and runs until 11 P.M. This much anticipated event kicks off the summer season in Loudonville with good food, wine, music, and entertainment.
D&D Smith Winery and Paper Moon Vineyards are just two of the many Ohio wines that will be featured. All wines can be sampled by the glass or bottle. “We will have 100 varieties of International & Ohio wine, domestic beer, live music, food vendors, all beautifully situated on the banks of Pine Run Creek, large tents, raffles, prizes, free transportation,” says Mark Smith, Founder and President of Wolf Creek Mill.
Smith explains that some of the overnight shuttle sponsors have changed this year, “We are requesting all guests, to double check where they are staying this year. The shuttle sponsors have changed. We know several attendees have reserved their overnight a year ago to use the shuttle. We just want everyone to have a good and safe time.” Shuttle and overnight sponsors include Arrow Point Campground, Blackfork Inn B&B, Mohican Adventures, Mohican Little Brown Inn, Mohican State Park Campground, Wally World Resort and Central Park-Loudonville, by the Public Restrooms for those closer to downtown Loudonville. The shuttle will take attendees back and forth from the event beginning at 2 p.m.
Attendees can enjoy a glass of wine while creating a personalized piece of art at the “Vine Art” canvas painting session that is held from 1-3 pm. This event is an additional $20.
Discounted pre-sale tickets can be purchased for $8 at Lingenfelter Jewelers in downtown Loudonville or online at WolfCreekMill.org. All presale tickets purchased online are claimed at the admission gate with valid ID. Tickets at the gate will be $10. Each adult ticket includes a logo wine glass and 10 tasting tickets.
The International Wine at the Mill Fundraiser is held just down the road from the mill. Simply look for the banner indicating that you have arrived. All proceeds go to the non-profit organization, Friends of the Wolf Creek Grist Mill, to continue preservation efforts at the mill. “I think people would be amazed on what we started with years ago. The Mill was slated to be condemned,” states Smith. “If it weren’t for these events and the support of the visitors, the Mill simply would not be here.” Wolf Creek Grist Mill now has over 5 cabins and a working mill available for all visitors to enjoy. This is in-line with the mission to preserve a vanishing part of heritage for future generations to enjoy and learn from. For more information visit WolfCreekMill.org.
