Cincinnati Wine Events: 4/13 – 4/19

Sparkling_swinepigMid-April arrived really fast, complete with a Friday the 13th. I don’t see this Friday as unlucky though – there are too many great tastings going on!

Here’s 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.

Some new additions and changes this week:

  • Party Source is hosting a special Biodynamic wine session with a Master of Wine on Friday night. Call 859.291.4007 to reserve a spot in this special tasting. This is a Must Attend for those of you with a serious desire to learn more about wine.
  • We’ve added Vinyl’s monthly Ladies Only tasting, Allyn’s wine tasting and party, and the O’Bryonville Wine Walk. Hyde Park Square is becoming the place to taste on Saturday afternoons, as Hyde Park Gourmet Food & Wine takes advantage of the wine masses at Awakenings.
  • O’Bryan’s is not holding their regular Friday evening tasting. Instead, they have two tastings scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday. Note that the Thursday Spanish Extravaganza does require reservations. They are also holding Beer tastings on Saturday.
  • Wine World has been taking some tasting time off and is debating on changing their tasting format. They’re open to suggestions.
  • Jungle Jim’s is holding a special beer tasting on Friday night.

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, 4/13 -
Thursday, 4/19 tastings. Upcoming events & classes, which require
reservations, are listed at the end.

Cheers!
