Cincinnati Wine Events: 5/11-5/17. Now with Maps and Printing!

Winemap
It’s time for our weekly event listing. We’ve got some new features we’ve added this week. (I think we’re trying to take the term Wine Geek to a whole new level.)

  • You can now view interactive maps of Friday retailers and Saturday retailers just by clicking the map icon wherever you may see it.
  • We’re including a downloadable PDF that is easier to print than this crazy web page.
  • If you want to view all of these Friday posts, there’s a new category. Just click on Weekly Cincinnati Wine Events in the tag cloud to the left.   

Watch this site on Monday morning. We’ve got an idea for all of these maps, and we’ll need your input!

As usual, it’s a big list, so we’ve compiled it on one
page for your reading 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 the Cincinnati area, 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, 5/11 -
Thursday, 5/17 tastings. Upcoming events that require
reservations or attracted my attention are listed at the end.
