Featured Cincinnati Wine Events: Feb 5 – 12

Be still my beating heart!  The Weekly Wine Events are back! Really, all is takes is for me to be in town longer than a week at a time. And happily, I’m in town for quite a while this time! I’m terribly behind at this, and my calendar crashed and lost a lot of information this morning. So … please let me know what I’ve missed and I’ll add it to the calendar!

You’re probably thinking Super Bowl for this weekend, but take a moment to peruse the rest of the February calendar. There are all sorts of great events coming up. Of course, if you look ahead on the calendar, you’ll see things with a Valentine’s theme starting to pop up. In my Molecular Bartending post last week, Josh commented and said he’ll be offering cocktail classes at Tonic soon as well. I don’t know what the schedule is for that, but as soon as I know – well, you’ll find it on the calendar and I’ll make sure to share. Pucks & Pinot is also next week. It’s the Cincinnati Cyclones wine tasting event. I mention it because I’m in love with the name!

I want to take a minute to let you know about Give to Haiti weekend at The Wine Merchant (3972 Edwards Road
Oakley). All wine bar proceeds made during the week benefit Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund, so head over to their wine bar tonite through Sunday.

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.
