Nestled in the rolling hills of Southeast Ohio, Le Petit Chevalier Vineyards and Farm Winery is the perfect refuge for Ohio wine lovers. Guests can sip and stay at this idyllic winery, come for the delicious wine and spectacular views, but stay overnight for a unique winery experience.

Located in Creola, the family-owned and operated vineyard and winery sits on 20+ acres and produces estate grown, bottled on-site wine. While the winery opened relatively recent in 2020, the owners Mark and Margit Chevalier have been tending the land, perfecting their fruit, and building the winery for more than a decade.

Growing cold-hardy hybrids and classic native wine grape varieties, the winery features a collection of fruit forward wines ranging from dry to sweet. The Le Petit Chevalier wine tasting room features an inviting space to sip your wine, but I would suggest enjoying your wine outside for the best views of the pond and surrounding vineyards.

Guests are welcome to explore the grounds - take a stroll through the vineyards, admire the historic barn, walk around the pond and visit the flock of adorable Southdown sheep.

During your walk, you just might have a few companions, as Alexander and Norton, the farm's two friendly Border Collies take pride in being the official tour guides of the winery.

If you're looking to experience a winery getaway, stay overnight in the Winery Loft. The cozy loft apartment accommodates overnight guests and can be rented on Airbnb. The Winery Loft is located above the tasting room, making it an easy walk downstairs to enjoy a wine tasting. With a private entrance, two private balconies, a fully equipped kitchen, private bathroom, spacious open floorplan with a cozy seating area, and comfortable king-sized bed -- the loft is a peaceful retreat welcoming guests to relax and unwind.

My husband and I truly enjoyed our overnight getaway at Le Petit Chevalier! We started our stay with quick tour of the winery loft, then headed downstairs to the tasting room to purchase a wine flight that we enjoyed outside overlooking the historic barn and rolling vineyards. After finishing our wine samples, we strolled through the vineyards with Alexander and Norton by our side and stumbled upon one of the owners, Margit, who graciously stopped what she was doing to tell us about the winery and the current renovations of the historic barn. Then we stopped in the tasting room to purchase a bottle of Oaked Norton to enjoy upstairs in the loft.

Since we wanted a quiet night in, we brought snacks and food for dinner to cook in the fully equipped kitchen. We sat outside on the private balcony, nibbled on snacks, and sipped on a glass of Oaked Norton while watching the sun set over the vineyards…it was a spectacular evening!

After the sun set, we cooked dinner, watched a movie, and quickly fell asleep as the star-filled sky and silence lured us to sleep. The next morning, we woke up refreshed and sat on the balcony to enjoy hot beverages and freshly baked bread from the owner's farm kitchen. One last walk through the vineyards with the dogs and we set off back home reinvigorated from our lovely stay.
