Cincinnati Wine Events 2008: 2/8 – 2/14

Heartwineglass

Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s amazing the number of restaurants offering dinner specials with some percentage off wine bottles. Just do a search on Cin Weekly’s Events, because I can’t possibly cover them all here.

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!
