Cincinnati Wine Events: 3/30 – 4/5/07

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 City Cellars, The Wine Cellar, and the Cincinnati Wine School. Several grocery stores are also getting in on the act, such as Kroger Miami Township and two Bigg’s locations.

You may note that the tastings in KY are mostly free, and the tastings in Ohio charge at least .25. It’s illegal for a retailer to give alcohol away in Ohio, so they charge you, but many times it’s a nominal fee.

Tell them we sent you, and happy tasting!

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

  • The next big wine festivals coming up are both in May. You can go to the Northern Kentucky (no kidding) Wine Festival on May 19 and Dayton’s great Fleur de Fetes on May 20.
  • The Jungle Jim’s Beer Festival is on May 12.
  • Jungle Jim’s Cooking School has announced the comprehensive schedule for their cooking classes (many of which involve food & wine pairing) for May-August 2007. Plan ahead and download a PDF schedule here.

Follow the "Continue reading" jump at the bottom for Friday, 3/30 – Thursday, 4/5 tastings. Upcoming events & classes, which require reservations, are listed at the end.

Cheers!
