Cincinnati Wine Events: 7/20 -7/26

CincyskylineWhere did July go? Just to meet my deadlines I need another week! Sheesh! But in the meantime there are a bunch of great tastings coming up. Make sure to check the upcoming events section. There are several fun tastings coming up, so you’ll want to make your reservations early.

We’ve got one new entry this week – Hyde Park Wine & Spirits is now offering monthly tastings on Friday nights. Also, The Wine List has a Meet the Winemaker event TONITE, with Vince Edwards from New Zealand’s tasty Villa Maria winery. Read our recent review of Villa Maria here. For some reason, it is also Italian Wine Weekend. No kidding! There are Italian wine tastings this weekend at Liquor Direct, Little Sonoma, The Wine CART, and The Party Source, as well as A Night in Tuscany at Nicola’s Ristorante.

Just an FYI, I have deadlines every Friday this month for the real world job (you know, the one that pays for all the wine!). That means a lot less blog posts in the month of July. I’ll always get these Friday posts up, but look for full-time blogging again come August. My apologies, but we must pay the bills here at My Wine Education with something besides freelance writing.) 

As usual, it’s a big list of events, 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, or if we have incorrect information, 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!
