Cincinnati Wine Events 2008: 1/11 – 1/17

FountainI dig my wine listings out of all sorts of spots. One of the big ones is usually the Enquirer’s Calendar. Unfortunately, not all our usual suspects have updated their bits of the calendar for the new year. Keep that in mind if the listing seems slim. In many cases, I went on the assumption of a regular tasting, but keep that in mind as you drive from one location to another.

Regular tastings do return this weekend to my Ky favorites Liquor Direct and Party Town, as well as Ohio’s Chateau Pomije and Wine World. Note that the times for Liquor Direct’s Saturday tastings have changed to 2 until 6 pm.

Friday brings a large selection of tastings this week. Do we head to
Bigg’s Skytop to meet the Spanish winemaker, to the new Blue Ash Kroger
for their Penfold’s tasting, and/or back to Liquor Direct because we’ve missed
them?

In case anyone cares, Monday is my birthday. I’m celebrating by going to the first tasting at 20 Brix in Milford on Tuesday, 1/15. I’d love to see any and all of you there! This is the first of weekly Tuesday night tastings at 20 Brix.

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!
