Cincinnati Wine Events 11/30-12/06

Kenwood At ChristmasAnd we’re back!

I haven’t done one of these event listings in a couple weeks due to our family crisis and then a much-needed vacation. My apologies. Because I’m so behind, it’s almost as if I’m starting over. If I’m missing events, please let me know. I’ve completely lost Autumn this year. It’s my favorite season and I completely missed it, and now the holidays are upon us.

A couple of notes before we get started: this weekend marks the last wine tastings for the year at both Liquor Direct locations. Tastings begin again in mid-January. Also, Little Sonoma and Meier’s Wine Cellars both have extended holiday hours. Watch for your favorite store to start extending their hours as well. You can’t go wrong with the gift of wine for the holidays.

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!

Cheers!
