Being someone who loves "themes," this colorfully decorated, bright red schoolhouse, complete with a dunce cap was right up our alley. I even tried to convince Dathan to put on the dunce cap and sit in the corner, but alas, he declined.
This schoolhouse was originally built in 1886, and was previously known as Oak Grove School #6. Classes were held here between 1886 through 1941. As one can imagine, this structure went through a couple of alterations throughout the years, before being purchased by Dave and Jennifer Jagunic of New Philadelphia, Ohio. It was later transformed into a "boutique" winery, and was named "Ohio's Most Unique Winery" in 2014 by Discovering Ohio.
A quick stop to check out this charming schoolhouse turned into a wine tasting and dinner before we continued on our journey back home to North Carolina. The wine tastings were 50-cents per taste. And keeping with the "theme," wines were coined names such as "Teacher's Pet," "Spring Break," "Equation," "Detention," "Principal" and "Pep Rally" to name a few. I believe Dathan's favorite was Detention, a semi-dry Moscato – maybe it was just a fond memory of his days in high school detentions on Saturday mornings.
We went down the list and tasted several wines before deciding on our two favorites to accompany our dinner. The menu at Schoolhouse consists primarily of pizzas and subs.
