Wine & Shakespeare (heavy on the wine)

Saturday night, the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company is holding a wine tasting event at MicroWines as their 2009/2010 Season Announcement Party. CSC announces their new season and you get to try yummy, small production wines. I'm a big fan of MicroWines and a tasting there is an chance to try some unique, hard-to-find wines.

We'll be tasting

  • Hofer Gruner Veltliner Weinviertel (Vienna)
  • Domaine Barroubio Muscat Sec (Languedoc)
  • Weingut Binz Spatburgunder (Baden, Germany)
  • Sonnino Leone Rosse Toscana (Italy)

The tasting is open to everyone, but you do need to RSVP. Cost, because the wines are small production and this is a charity event, is $75/person. You can feel okay about that because a portion of the ticket price will be tax-deductible, and all proceeds go to help keep CSC happily afloat. The price includes the four-flight tasting and light bites by Funky's catering. If it matters to you, you also get the chance to hobnob with the actors.

Now, here's the really good part: each ticket enters you into the "door prize" drawing for the evening. As CSC announces each production in the upcoming 2009/2010 season, they'll draw the name of one attendee, who will receive a mini-lot of fine wines selected by MicroWines. There are seven shows, so seven winners. MicroWines is a small place, so I'm going to say your chances are pretty good.

There are two tastings: 5-7 pm and 8-10 pm. There is still room in both, but I know the early one is filling up faster. For reservations, contact Development Director Kelly Bollinger by email or phone: 513-381-2273 ext. 217. You can also fill out this form (PDF)
and fax it to 513.381.2298. As long as you RSVP, you can still pay at the door.  Kevin and I will be at the later tasting, and we'd love to see you there!
