International wines to be featured at 26th annual Cincinnati Wine Festival

Wines from all around the world will be featured at the Cincinnati Wine Festival March 3-5 at various locations throughout the city. 

The festival, celebrating its 26th anniversary this year, has grown throughout the years and has garnered interest from people in cities as far as New York, New Jersey, Pittsburgh and Atlanta, says Executive Director Debbie Dent.

Started by Russ Wiles in 1991, Cincinnati Wine Festival is one of the largest in the Midwest and has donated more than $4.6 million to 45 local charities.

The three main events during the festival weekend are winery dinners, grand tastings and charity auction and luncheon.
“There will be more than 700 wines from more than 150 different wineries,” Dent says. “You have the ability to taste different wines from all around the world right here in Cincinnati.”
