Cincinnati Wine Events: 4/20 – 4/26

Maisownette Pig from the Cincinnati Big Pig Gig, 2000Another great week of tastings coming towards us as Spring finally arrives. Let’s hope it’s here to stay this time!

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.

Our new addition this week is Chateau Pomije Wine Shop. Chateau Pomije is also where Kevin and I had our first date 7 years ago this Sunday, back when it was a restaurant and a wine shop. In fact, the wines for our wedding came from the Indiana winery of the same name, when they had a great late-harvest Riesling.

Don’t forget the Cincinnati Fine Food Show, within the Cincinnati Flower Show, is this weekend only. For more information, check out our blog post from Tuesday.

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, 4/20 -
Thursday, 4/26 tastings. Upcoming events & classes, which require
reservations, are listed at the end.

Cheers!

  1. Deb says:

    Hi Michelle, my name is Deb and am originally from the Cincy area. I am now living in Key West, but come up to Cincy often as I still have family and friends in the area. So I was thrilled to come across your site because I am heading up in May for awhile and was looking for some type of calendar to get info on the wine scene. I do a blog on wine and my garden here in Key West and also do posts for Wine Sediments a couple of times a month. I used to buy alot of my wine from Party Source or The Wine Store on Montgomery Rd. But I know there are lots of new spots up your way to purchase my wine. Any good recommendation for nice variety?
    Anyhow, I am glad I found your site for information and if you have a free moment, stop by my site at http://www.debskeywestwineandgarden.blogspot.com
    Thanks!
