Cincinnati Wine Events: 4/27 – 5/3

Cincyskyline_2
It’s been one of those weeks around here. You know, the kind of week where everything just sort of gets away from you. My apologies for the lack of posting, so we’ll make it up to you with the excellent list of events happening this coming week. South African and Spanish wines seem to be making a splash in the tasting lists lately. Chateau Pomije also now has a schedule of regular tastings for summer.

The excellent 1 Night, 12 Kitchens is happening this Sunday evening at the Midwest Culinary Institute with some of Cincinnati’s top chefs. Don’t forget to get prepared for the big tasting weekend later in May. In one weekend you can take in Ohio Wines at the Voice of America park, a wine & food festival at Dayton’s fantastic Fleur des Fetes, and the Northern Ky International Wine Festival. It’s all happening May 18-10. Check it out in our Upcoming Events section.

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.

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, 4/27 -
Thursday, 4/3 tastings. Upcoming events & classes, which require
reservations, are listed at the end.

Cheers!
