Featured Cincinnati Wine Events: Nov 20-27

Since I missed last week by spending all of my time in an airport on Friday, I thought I’d include today in, well, today’s list!  Since it’s a holiday week, it’s a short list, but Saturday is jam-packed. At the bottom of the list, pay particular attention to the various winery events happening on Thanksgiving weekend. Whether you’re in Ohio or
Kentucky, I guarantee at least one winery near you is having some sort of event. Wineries I haven’t ever heard of came out of the woodwork!

You should definitely hit up all the regular tastings this weekend. Place like Dep’s Fine Wine & Spirits (I really preferred the name Liquor Direct), City Cellars, and Little Sonoma are having some great Thanksgiving tastings this weekend and early next week. Looking ahead, the first week of December tends to be when everyone pulls out all the holiday tastings (sparklers, special beers, special everything …), so note that on your calendar.

Remember, all the recurring events, those dependable weekly tastings,
are displayed on our calendar. The one-time events are after the jump.

For information on what’s going on
in Dayton, you can refer to Mark’s blog at Uncorked.

BONUS: Post Thanksgiving Weekend Winery Spectacular Spectacular

I highly recommend you spend either “Black” Friday or Saturday visiting the local wineries for their annual fall barrel tasting. The barrel tasting event includes Harmony Hill, Kinkead Ridge, Henke, Burnet Ridge, and Woodstone Creek. Additionally, Hanover Winery in Hamilton is open to the public on weekends through Christmas and post-Thanksgiving is the last weekend for La Vigna in the Ripley area.

In Kentucky, Stonebrook Winery, Elk Creek Vineyards, and Camp Springs are all open.
