Wow, there is a WEALTH of fantastic events here, including a bunch on this coming Wednesday night, April 5, including but not limited to a special event at the Wine Bar at Osaka in Beavercreek (a recent addition to this tastings list) and a wine dinner at Carvers. And check out the tastings planned for Blue Note Bistro, and the special Antinori luncheon April 8 at Jay’s! And keep your calendar open on the evening of April 27. More details to come on THAT. As always, a mighty mighty shout-out to the indomitable Dayton-based wine listserv that compiles all of this information and allows us to copy and paste it here for your reading, planning and tastings enjoyment. I have the easy part. They (well, she) has the hard part. Enjoy!
