Cincinnati Wine Events 9/21- 9/27

Cincinnati Wine Events 9/21–9/27

ChickendanceAnd we’re back! With this list we have some sort of normalcy returning to our lives. Thank goodness. The last two weeks, between Florida and death, have been rather surreal.

Overshadowing all other events this weekend is the annual Oktoberfest celebration downtown on 5th Street, which happens on Saturday and Sunday. As usual with these big events, I direct you to CinWeekly for all the latest Oktoberfest information. Also this weekend is Tha Blast, also covered by CinWeekly.

This weekend we’re heading to Chicago to deal with some family-related things, so we’ll miss the great events going on this weekend. You’ll have to let us know how all these fun events go off!

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!
