Hopefully the weather will clear up and we’ll have a beautiful weekend. Kevin & I will be wrapped up in wine all weekend, judging the competition for the Northern KY Wine Festival. The Festival itself isn’t until June 7, but the judging happens ahead of time.
As I will each week, I’ve spotlighted a few events that tickle my
fancy. Enjoy a Lobsta Bake downtown at City Cellars on Saturday in their new expanded tasting room. On Tuesday, learn about pairing wine and chocolate from Bill Sands & Jaren Whalen, Chef from Chalk, at the Midwest Culinary Institute. On Wednesday, attend a wine dinner at McCormick & Schmick’s featuring Rodney Strong Vineyards. The Party Source, as usual, has a fun and eclectic lineup throughout the weekend, ending with A Taste of Germano’s on Monday evening.
It’s worth mentioning that for the next month, Germano’s has their own recurring wine tasting event with light antipasti each Friday night, 6 pm, for $25. The Whole Foods in Rookwood has now officially joined the Friday night tasting fray as well.
Tell the retailers we sent you, and happy tasting!
