So, who went to Krohn?

I was unable to make it to the Krohn Conservatory Ohio Wine event on Friday night due to visiting relatives. I hear it was a sold-out event.

In fact, word is that if the feedback is good enough, this may become a regular thing for the Cincinnati Park Board. That means bigger venues and more options.

So let’s provide them with that feedback. Post your comments on this post or email them to me. I’ll try to get it all together in one big post and we’ll make sure it also gets to the Park Board.

I look forward to hearing from all of you!

    Hi Michelle.
    Sorry you missed the Krohn Conservatory Wine Event. It was one of the most enjoyable wine tasting events I’ve poured. The ambiance was, of course, spectacular, with Easter Lilies in full bloom. The size of the guest list was great for me, since I enjoy having the time to speak to the attributes of Harmony Hill wines and brag about the Ohio River Valley wine industry with guests. Jim Fearing’s presentation on Nicholas Longworth and the Ohio Wine History was phenomenal. The event was well planned and excellently managed by Mark House and RuthAnn Spears of Krohn conservatory. We are all looking forward to next year’s repeat of this memorable event.

    I went to Krohn! I tasted at Harmony Hill, Vinoklet, Meranda-Nixon, Woodstone Creek, and Lakeside. Unfortunately I didn’t make any notes — not sure what I was thinking — so all I can report back is that I liked best the Harmony Hill and the Meranda-Nixon wines. The Meranda-Nixon was a red, the Harmony Hill a dry white, IIRC. It was great to meet Bill Skvarla of Harmony Hill and Nancy Bentley of Kinkead Ridge in person, as they’re both on the Cincinnati Local Foods Group email list. (I didn’t taste a Kinkead Ridge wine because theirs are easily available to me at my local wine shop, and I’ve tasted nearly all of them already.)

    This wine tasting event at Krohn was very enjoyable and if it becomes an annual event, I would definitely go again. It was delightful to be in such an absolutely beautiful setting (especially after the depressing weather we’ve had!). There was an adequate representation of local wineries and wine. The owners were friendly and most eager to share their unique histories. The singing combo was a nice touch, and Jim Fearing’s talk was quite interesting. The Krohn anniversary commemorative glass from Tiffany’s was a nice bonus too! I didn’t feel limiting attendance to only 100 people was necessary…the more the merrier! … and there seemed to be enough vendors to accomodate more people! The cost was a tad high, especially given the limited appetizer selection…for that price, I would expect a more impressive spread or even a light buffet. Also, next year, choose a date other than Good Friday!

    I genuinely enjoyed the entire event. Cincinnati has a lot of history to be proud of. We need more events such as this.. which included a terrific history lesson by Jim Fearing. I had no idea Cincinnati was so prominent in the establishment of the US wine production industry. it was a real eye opening experience… so many good wines are produced locally.
