Cincinnati International Wine Festival has donated more than $5 million in 27 years

Since 1991, the Cincinnati International Wine Festival has generated nearly $5 million for local charities, and the giving will continue at this year’s event, which takes place March 2-4.
Half of each purchased festival ticket will benefit 36 nonprofits — all of which host programs that impact education, the arts, health and human services.
More than 700 domestic and international wines from 250 wineries will be represented at this year’s event, making the Cincinnati International Wine Festival the Midwest’s premier wine experience.
This year’s honorary festival chair is Geneviève Janssens of the Robert Mondavi Winery in Napa Valley, who says she is thrilled to share her passion for winemaking with Cincinnati.
“I am dedicated to continuing the winemaking legacy of Robert Mondavi by producing wines with elegance and finesse,” she says. “And that’s exactly what you will find at the Cincinnati International Wine Festival. It truly will be an experience not to be missed.”
The festival will present wine enthusiasts of all kinds the opportunity to taste different wines and indulge in gourmet dining experiences and wine pairings. Education sessions and a charity auction, which will include everything from rare chef’s table dining opportunities to tours of wine cellars, will also occur.
“There is something for everyone, and it’s all for a great cause,” says Debbie Dent, executive director of the Festival. “Not only will you have an incredible time, but you will be helping us give back to local charities in a tremendous way, one glass at a time.”
