Join Angela this Thursday and Friday for free wine tastings

By Angela

Hello fellow wine lovers,

I just wanted to inform everyone that starting Thursday I will be pouring and hosting FREE wine tastings at Liquor City Bakewell in Covington KY.  Thursday and Friday, November 17 and 18, from 4 -8 p.m. I will be pouring the big six grapes. The tasting will be Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah.

The big six wine tasting will get you to:

  • taste the difference between each grape varietal
  • taste the difference between light, medium, and full bodied wines
  • see the color difference between the three whites and the three reds
  • and you’ll be able to know a few basics about wines

If you happen to be in the Covington/Northern Kentucky area this Thursday or Friday please come and see me. Future wine tastings: November 21st & 23rd at Liquor City Bakewell.

Cheers.

Not Your Average Grapes: Come Join Me at Dilly Cafe!

This Saturday, I’m playing hostess for a wine tasting at the Dilly Cafe. First the key information: this Saturday, Oct 9, 1-4 pm, 50 cents per pour. If the weather cooperates, we’ll be enjoying a gorgeous fall day on the patio.

Now, the wines. I originally wanted to do a Breast Cancer themed tasting (okay, I walked in and said, “I think my theme is boobs.”) But I ended up with one red, one white, and four rosés. Now, I know people get all strange about rosé, and some people only want red or only want white at tastings, so I was feeling a little uncomfortable with my theme. Then I was staring at a particular wine and realized that I wanted to throw in some “weird” grapes.

Really, these grapes aren’t all that unusual – but my hope is that at least one of these grapes will be new to you. They’re fun to try and come from all across the globe.

1. A nice sparkling Brachetto (Italy)

2. Vinum Cellars White Elephant (Rhone blend, California winery, Chenin Blanc / Roussanne / Viognier blend)

3. Hirsch Gruner #1 (Austria, Grüner Veltliner)

4. Enotria Cortese (California winery, Italian grape – also called Gavi)

5. Turn Me Red (Austria, Zwiegelt)

6. Chandon Pinot Meunier (California winery, originally a French grape) << One of my favorite wines!

Well, that’s what is picked out right now, but keep in mind these are subject to change based on distributor availability.

I hope to see everyone there!

Featured Cincinnati Wine Events, Mar 19 – 26

It’s a slow week as far as wine events go, although I’m sure I’ve missed things. But there are two big things next week, to make up for the lack of one-off events. First off, it’s Restaurant Week. You can go to any of the listed Greater Cincinnati Independent restaurants and get a 3-course dinner for $26.10. Restaurant week runs March 22 – 28.

Next weekend is also BeerFest! I’m pretty sure you’ll find Kevin, probably with the Hoperatives, at the Festival on Friday night. After all, BeerFest is to the Hoperatives what WineFest is to me. You’ll be amazed at this particular BeerFest. It’s in the convention center and sounds like it’s roughly the size of the WineFest. Yep, it’s that big but a whole lot cheaper. It runs March 26-28 and features over 130 different beers. Tickets are only $35. Buy your tickets online ahead of time though, as they’re capping the number of guests for each session.

As a note, I will be out of town all next week and through the next weekend (I’m missing BeerFest). I’m sort of crossing the country, from Seattle to Orlando and back to Cincinnati. Needless to say, there will not be a Featured Events post next week – I’ll be somewhere between the West and East Coast and probably jetlagged.

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

Featured Cincinnati Wine Events Feb 27 – Mar 5

The Party Source has a slew of offerings during this upcoming pre-Wine Festival week, including a free Sampling Soiree (eat your way thru the Party Source). Jungle Jim’s is offering low-cost premium tastings in 3 different sessions tomorrow as well. The rest of the week is low-key, although there are two different wine/food options for Tuesday night out in Milford.

Next weekend begins the FESTive month of March, which offers three different alcohol-themed festivals: BockFest (March 5-7), the Cincinnati International Wine Festival (March 12-13), and BeerFest (March 26-28).

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

Featured Cincinnati Wine Events, Feb 20-26

After a crazy Valentine’s week, our wine events slow down a little. We’ve added Oakley Wines to the recurring wines section, as they offer a Friday evening tasting. New to our one-time listings is A Bottle or Two on Montgomery Road, which offers food and wine pairing events on the weekend.

My recommendation for the week? If you can, reserve a spot for the Malvirà wine tasting at The Party Source on Saturday. Additionally, you can join Rivertown Brewery, a new local brewery, at their Dilly Deli launch party on Tuesday evening.

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.
