Bring a Passion for Vino to the Cincinnati International Wine Festival

A passion for fine wine is just one reason to attend the Cincinnati International Wine Festival. The celebration is actually run by a nonprofit organization that raises money for local charities—last year, it gave away a whopping $400,000 to 35 charities in the area. Over its 28-year history, more than $5.6 million has been donated. So, with every sip of wine, you’re actually doing a good deed.

Explore the lineup of events from March 7th to 9th to figure out which ticket (or tickets) you want to purchase. The weekend consists of wine dinners at local eateries, grand tastings at the Duke Energy Center, and other wine-centric events. Tickets to the grand tastings start at $70, but you can also invest in a weekend-long pass ($300) if you want access to every tasting. The cost of a seat at a wine dinner ranges from $125 to $175 at local restaurants like Nicholson’s and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.
