Cincinnati Wine Tastings: 3/23 – 3/29/2007

Sparkling_swinepig
It’s that time again – 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.

Tell them we sent you, and happy tasting!

There are slightly fewer tastings this week. I think the retailers are taking the weekend off to enjoy the wine festival. You can still get tickets to the Cincinnati International Wine Festival. Just show up at the convention center and purchase your tickets at the box office. I recommend the Friday evening or Saturday afternoon events because they are usually less crowded. Saturday night is often packed to the gills, which means it’s hard to even get near the tables. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales go to help local Cincinnati charities (yes, your ticket is 50% tax deductible for 2007). So go! Enjoy!

Follow the "Continue reading" jump at the bottom for Friday, 3/23 – Thursday, 3/29 tastings. Upcoming dinners and events that require reservations are listed at the end.

Cheers!
