Cincinnati Wine Events 2008 3/28-4/3

WinefestivalHere’s the Friday post. Although really folks, this weekend is the wine festival. Go there on Friday and Saturday. And after a lot of wine, you’re probably going to want beer. ;-)

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!
