Cincinnati Wine Tastings: 3/16 – 3/22/2007

Maisownette Pig from the Cincinnati Big Pig Gig, 2000 Here you go. Our weekly write-up of wine events in and around the greater Cincinnati area. It’s a big list, so we’ve compiled it on one page for your printing pleasure. (For information on Dayton, you can refer to Mark’s blog at Uncorked.) If you know of tastings or events that we missed in Cincinnati, please email us and we’ll add it to the list. New additions this week include Party Town, Awakenings, Henke Winery, Marble Hill Chocolatier, and The Art of Entertaining.

Tell them we sent you, and happy tasting!

Don’t forget that you can purchase tickets to the International Wine Festival at many of these locations. The wine festival is next weekend, 3/23-24. There are also a plethora of St. Patrick’s Day events going on this weekend. Because there are so many, I direct you to the CinWeekly hot list to find out about all St. Pat’s Day oriented events.

Follow the "Continue reading" jump at the bottom for Friday, 3/16 – Thursday, 3/22 tastings. Upcoming dinners, which require reservations, are listed at the end.

Cheers!
