Here’s the best wine-tastings and beer-events list in Dayton & beyond

The Wine Bar at Osaka Japanese Steakhouse in Beavercreek is now hosting wine tastings TWO days a week — check out the details below. And a tip o’ the cap to Ray’s Wine Spirits Grill for their creative wine-tasting themes this week: a Hungarian & Armenian tasting, and a “Sweet Local” tasting as well. Well-played!

Note that Jay’s Kitchen Door (not the restaurant) is closed this weekend, and its usual Friday night and Saturday afternoon tastings are cancelled, as is the the wine luncheon that had been scheduled for Saturday. Jay’s Restaurant itself is open and operating business as usual.

And a loud and enthusiastic shout-out to the Dayton-based wine listserv that compiles this tastings list and allow us to copy and paste it here. We ALL appreciate it! Now Read, attend, and enjoy!
