If you read CityBeat at all, then you noticed that they had a big article on Buying Local this week – complemented by an article on “Vineyard Tripping in Ripley.” Yep, CityBeat finally caught up to what I’ve been telling you all for years: Drink Local.
Happily, CityBeat visited both Kinkead Ridge, which gets most of the local press anyway, and Meranda-Nixon, which is sort of an undiscovered gem. (Or at least it was …)
So, as sort of a chaser to the CityBeat article, I wanted to point new readers (hello Enquirer readers! *waving*) to some of our articles on Local Wineries, including Harmony Hill, Meranda-Nixon, Kinkead Ridge, and Chateau Thomas.
Back in the spring we had “winery week” here on My Wine Education, and we visited several local wineries:
Last autumn, we got to help harvest the grapes at Harmony Hill, which was fun, hard, and educational. I guarantee we’ll be helping out again.
We’ve also got a post from our 2008 Labor Day trip to most of the local wineries and even a photo of Kinkead Ridge in winter. I haven’t yet visited La Vigna Estate in Georgetown, OH, but I hear it’s lovely.
Don’t forget that you can also visit Henke, our own urban winery, over on the west side. Woodstone Creek, another local winery, is located near Xavier and offers bourbon and vodka in addition to wine.
Additionally, there are Kentucky wineries. We keep meaning to make it to very local Stonebrook Winery for one of their highly recommended winery dinners. I’ve also published posts on Elk Creek in Owenton and Jean Farris en route to Lake Cumberland, which share a winemaker.
Not quite local, but so many Cincinnatians head to Gatlinburg on a regular basis that I thought I’d share my post about the “Rocky Top Wine Trail” in Pigeon Forge.
Our Local Wineries category allows you to poke through all of our local winery-related posts, all the way back through 2006.
Finally, I just want to give a shout-out to Valeree, whose Cincinnati Locavore blog is your guide to everything Slow Food locally.
