Cincinnati Wine Events 8/3 – 8/9

MariemontSeptember is coming up on us rapidly. Where did the summer go? Most of the local wineries, like Harmony Hill and Kinkead Ridge, close their tasting rooms at the end of summer. If you haven’t made the trip yet, it’s time to check out the vinifera offered by our local vintners.

My apologies if I missed something this week or if the tasting listings seem slightly vague. As you read this, I’m getting a pedicure at a spa in Tennessee (yes, a quick vacation!), so I compiled the list a bit early this week.

Finally, a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to all who nominated this blog. My Wine Education has been voted one of the Top 10 Cincinnati Blogs by the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce and CincyTechUSA. Thanks!

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!
