Featured Cincinnati Wine Events: 2/13 – 2/19

It’s Valentine’s Day weekend and the Valentine-themed dinners are out of control. They start tonite and roll through Sunday. I am not listing them all here. In fact, I’m pretty much just mentioning the ones that really strike my fancy for one reason or another. For a complete listing of all your romantic Valentine options, check out Cincinnati.com’s Calendar.

Tired or annoyed by Valentine’s Day? That’s okay, because this year it bumps right up against Mardi Gras. Just head down to Covington’s Mainstrasse this weekend and you’ll forget all about that other holiday.

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.
