Wine tastings offer chance to toast the life of Dayton wine evangelist

This week’s wine-tastings list is dedicated to the rich, full and impactful life of Tom Davis, the University of Dayton professor whose “Wines of the World” UD class helped a generation of students learn how to appreciate wines. His memorial service is Saturday morning at the UD chapel, and I have zero doubt that Tom would want you to raise a glass to the enjoyment of life at some point Saturday in his honor.

Services Saturday for local wine evangelist Tom Davis

A big, warm welcome to Shen’s Szechuan and Sushi, which makes its debut on this list today! Check out their Thursday night wine dinner below. And remember, this wine-tastings and beer events list comes to us via the heroic efforts of a Dayton-based wine listserv, which compiles the information and allows us to copy and paste it here. And for that we are THANKFUL! Read, attend, enjoy, and appreciate!
