Cincinnati Wine Events: 4/6 – 4/12

Peeps
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. Our new additions this week are The Wine C.A.R.T. in West Chester and the Kroger Ft. Mitchell, right around the corner from us.

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!

Follow the "Continue reading" jump at the bottom for Friday, 4/6 -
Thursday, 4/12 tastings. Upcoming events & classes, which require
reservations, are listed at the end.

We’ll be out of town for the holiday weekend, so let us know if we miss anything fantastic. Try not to eat too many Peeps!

Cheers!
